Grab your shipmates Rift owners, and get ready to fight your way across the galaxy. From the minds that brought you Chronos, comes an all new FPS adventure called From Other Suns. This Oculus exclusive is making you the captain of your own ship as you race across the galaxy in order to save humanity, and your own skin.
Designed specifically for the Rift, From Other Suns has already made waves with the open beta last weekend. The 10 jump limitation left many players wanting more action and unfortunately we have to wait a little while longer for that to happen. In the meantime, let’s look at what we know.
A Long Ways from Home
From Other Suns is both single player and 3 player drop-in co-op. The owner of the game lobby is that acting captain, but that doesn’t mean another player can’t take control of the ship if you’re not careful. Seeing as how this game does features perma death, you will want to be careful. Luckily, you will have a huge amount of weaponry at your disposal as you progress.
All that fire power will be your best friend during your long haul back to earth. You’re going to face everything from ancient aliens and robots, to space pirates out for your booty. As the universe is completely randomized, no two jumps will be exactly the same so it never hurts to keep an eye out for hidden goodies.
From Other Suns isn’t just about first person combat. It also features rogue-lite elements and space exploration/combat. You will need to maintain your ship and manage a crew. So, steal anything not bolted down, shoot everything that moves, then go back with bolt cutters.
Oculus has had some great exclusive content and Gunfire Games’ From Other Suns is shaping up to keep that trend going. This one will be available starting November 14th for only 39.99 but, it is up for pre-order for 34.99 over on the Oculus Store.
