As you all probably know by now, I’m TVGB’s VR nut. I think this is probably because I’m not here most of the time and being given a valid excuse to actually be elsewhere is just awesome. What’s this got to do with anything? Well, being said VR nut, I’m obviously going to be bringing you VR news whenever I can. So let’s get on to this little order of business – Crisis Action VR, a survival horror FPS by Pixel Wonder, is now available on Steam VR.
The title will offer support for the HTC Vive, Oculus Rift, and of course the keyboard and mouse. This will let you get some killing done in the fashion most comfortable to you.
The addition of this title to the library is great for two reasons. All of us VR fans will have something new to sink our teeth into which is of course brilliant but this is definitely one for survival horror enthusiasts as well. We aren’t just talking another zombie slay-fest, we’ve all done that before. This is a game that is said to really build suspense and make fear palpable. If this is the case this is something that is going to lend itself massively well to VR.
So what can we expect from the game then? Crisis Action VR offers a bunch of different game modes and is aiming to appeal to everyone. If you want to go on a zombie killing spree with a maximum of four of your mates, you can. The game’s versus mode offers player versus bot battles. Of course, if you want to kill your mates well there’s player versus player too.
There’s plenty here for solo gamers as well. Story mode invites you into a world on the brink of total zombie apocalypse. You will find yourself trying to find the cause of the epidemic, while fighting off waves of the undead in an attempt to get out alive. The game offers a variety of scenarios and story lines that will test more skills than just basic zombie slaying.
Now let’s remember that this is VR so you can expect and enhanced sense of action. Crisis Action VR is really going to be getting the adrenaline pumping. You already have the heart wrenching, pulse pounding, feeling that comes from getting out of a totally lethal situation alive. If you add in the pure unadulterated fear factor of waiting for that elevator door to slowly open, or investigating a creepy office for clues knowing that there is a horde of vicious undead not to far away you’re going to be getting an awesome mix of thrills and chills.
You can play to your own style with Crisis Action VR. The game offers you a wide variety of weapons. You will find many of your FPS favourites but for players that like to get up close and personal there are a range of melee options for you to choose from as well.
All in all this looks massively interesting. So many of you just need to be scared. This game may well accommodate that urge. At the very least Steam VR fans will have something a little bit different to throw themselves into.
