From the studio that gave us The Perfect Sniper VR, comes a new tactical military shooter called Warzone VR that looks to be the intense large-scale VR military shooter we’ve been waiting for. Developer SinnStudio is promising a “large-scale VR multiplayer shooter that combines tactical play with a wide arsenal of weapons, the use of vehicles and multiple teams competing on a single map.” Quite the ambitious undertaking for a small indie studio.
In Warzone VR several teams or squads will compete on a large map for dominance. The game looks like it will focus more on realistic visuals, weapons, and gameplay. Combined with the abilities of virtual reality headsets, the studio is aiming to immerse players in a real but still epic battlefield setting.
We already have a couple of tactical military shooters for VR, like Onward, Pavlov, and Front Defence: Heroes but Warzone VR seems to aim for a bigger experience with squads of up to 5 players and apparently up to 10 squads on large maps that will range from 2x2km to 4x4km. You won’t have to run all the way across the map, though, as the studio is also promising the use of military convoys/vehicles in the game.
This may sound a little like a battle royal, but unlike the other military shooters currently available, Warzone VR will have game modes that are objective based. With the studio aiming to bring in a randomizing factor for the objectives during matches so you don’t play the exact same game every time. Some teams will also see their objectives suddenly change during the game, while other teams will have one prevalent objective from finish to start. That will certainly help for replayability since it means you and your squad will have to continually come up with new strategies.
Check out the trailer below:
“Warzone takes place in a near future where war has brought destruction and decay to the world. A once thriving civilization gone as the strongest who fought for their command are left in ruins to survive. Equipped with everything they had and needed during the war, these soldiers of tomorrow now struggle to take and keep resources, opposed by no one but themselves,” the studio said in a press statement.
Right now, we don’t know much more than that or the bit of gameplay the trailer reveals. But we’ll make sure to keep you up to date as Warzone VR nears its release. No set launch date has been announced yet, but the game is expected to come to PC VR headsets sometime during Fall 2018 and PSVR support coming shortly after, with full support for all controllers. We’re wondering if that includes the PSVR Aim controller – since it’s certainly made for games like this one.
