You guys already know that Starbreeze and Overkill are making a AAA Walking Dead title for PC and console, but last night Starbreeze announced that not only will there be a VR demo version of the game at E3, but that it will be running on their own hardware, StarVR!
In the VR Demo, players sit in a wheelchair and are wheeled through a hospital, armed with a shotgun, and forced to dispatch some walkers (naturally). The shotgun is an actual real-world peripheral that is motion-tracked by the system. The VR demo is meant as an early showcase for StarVR and a promo for Overkill’s The Walking Dead but it may evolve into its own VR game down the line.
Visitors at E3 can visit Starbreeze and Overkill at booth #F5 to try out Walking Dead in virtual reality for themselves! We’ll be tweeting pictures of the booth this week when he hit E3 for all of our partners’ TWD gaming goodness!
like a lot of people am still not sold on VR, its going to take something amazing to make me want to part with my hard earned £. still stoked for the Overkill game though, more details on that please . . . 🙂
Have you ever tried VR?
back in the 80/90s, which was terrible, and i know that it is not fair to compare the old tech to what is a awesome looking bit of kit above, but I kind of got motion sickness from it, lol.
Oh, now see… I’m an adrenaline junkie/thrill seeker. I just don’t wanna end up like Lawnmower Man, LMAO! Seriously, this sounds like something I need to check into… might mean a weekend trip to find one, that’s the thing.
