Announced earlier this year for HTC Vive, Oculus Rift and PlayStation VR, Creed: Rise to Glory is the game tie-in for the upcoming Creed sequel with Sylvester Stallone, and Michael B. Jordan playing the main role of Creed. The game is being made by Sprint Vector developer Survios and is one of the more promising VR titles set to release this year. Even though it’s a movie tie-in and we know how terribly those have gone in the past.
Creed forms part of the Rocky universe if you’re not familiar with the movies. Don’t worry if you aren’t – watching people punch each other is not exactly my cup of tea either. However, the game looks like it could be a helluva lot of fun and I’m certainly up for trying out the studio’s “Phantom Melee Technology” and throwing some punches myself.
There have been other fun boxing games like Knockout League filling the void for VR players. But we haven’t found that ultimate boxing title just yet, and Creed: Rise to Glory might just be it, judging from what we’ve seen of it so far as well as Survios’ stellar record for creating fun, polished games. In it you play the role of the main character, Adonis Creed who tries to rise through the ranks of the boxing league to become a famed champion. As you train with the legendary Rocky Balboa, you’ll get to sharpen your boxing skills and face increasingly challenging iconic opponents across a career mode and an arcade-like “Exhibition Mode”.
A new trailer has now been released at this year’s E3 showcase, showing off more promising gameplay for the upcoming title. No final release date has been announced for Creed: Rise to Glory yet, but the title is slated for release this Fall. We’ll keep you updated on any more news around this exciting VR boxing game.
