Resolution Games, the studio behind VR titles such as Demeo, Cook-Out: A Sandwich Tale, and Blaston, has announced that one of their next VR titles is Ultimechs, which will put characters in control of mechanized professional athletes. The game will be available across all major VR platforms sometime next year.
VR has taken off quite a bit in recent years. Games like Iron Man VR, Superhot VR, proved that VR could work on a commercial scale, and with PlayStation and other companies ramping up the second generation of VR titles, it looks like VR titles are only going to continue to become more complex and interesting.
“With Ultimechs we have created an entirely new gameplay mechanic that could only exist in the immersive world of VR,” said Tommy Palm, CEO of Resolution Games. “Sure anyone can kick a ball into a net, but only in the world of Ultimechs can you and your mech punch it in by firing a rocket fist and controlling the trajectory as you follow along its path. And that just scratches the surface of Ultimechs. We’ve really stretched the boundaries of what can be done in VR in this game, and we can’t wait to share more details.”
Ultimechs demands excellence from its players, just like a regular sport would. It's described as state-of-the-art, quick, and requires precision to defeat your opponents, as well as the cunning usage of rockets. Pretty explosive, eh?
