First Contact Entertainment, the developer of the popular PSVR exclusive Firewall Zero Hour, will bring Solaris Offworld Combat to Sony’s virtual reality headset this week. Set to release from 18th May – with a whopping 50 per cent discount for PS Plus subscribers – the release aims to immerse you “in a future where eSports and televised teams have evolved into playing on Virtual Holofields”.
You’ll play in teams of four, working to “take the Control Point and hold it to score”. Unsurprisingly, this Control Point moves every 30 seconds or so, meaning you’ll need to constantly sprint about the map, avoiding hazards, to take control. You can get a better idea of how this looks in action courtesy of the gameplay video embedded below, although this is not from the PSVR version:
The game has full PSVR Aim Controller support, but you can also use the DualShock 4 controller if you prefer. Hopefully this title can command enough of an audience to remain engaging, because conceptually we reckon the idea of a fast-paced FPS for PSVR is a fun one – but these kind of games live and die by the number of people playing them.
