If there’s one thing that I will never get tired of, its got to be VR games that involve space. It doesn’t matter if its exploring distant stars, firing off plasma cannons in dogfights, or solving puzzles in abandoned space stations. I want it in my HMD. It would seem that 3rd Eye Studios’ upcoming game, Downward Spiral: Horus Station, falls right into the space category. Best of all, we will be able to board the Horus Station on May 31.
In Horus Station, players must unravel the mystery behind the long-lost, abandoned, space station. With no assistance guiding you along the way, use the tools found on the station to overcome any obstacles you encounter. That goes for obstructions to your path, and anything else you might come across during your exploration. After all, their is more than one use for a bolt gun in outer space.
Do the Locomotion
One of the great things about space games, is that it opens up a ton of room to explore new ways for players to move in VR. Horus Station is looking to set the bar with their Zero-g locomotion. Players will rely on using their surroundings to boost off of objects in zero-g, in addition to using a handy tools found on the station.
Want to show off your zero-g legs to a friend? You can do that. Horus Station has single player, co-op, and eight player online multiplayer game modes. The story mode can be played with or without violent encounters, and the multiplayer includes deathmatch, horde, and survivor challenges.
You can learn more about this mysterious space station on May 31 for $19.99. It will initially be available for the PC, with support for the Rift, Vive, and WMR headsets. A PSVR version of Horus Station should be available sometime this summer.
