SUPERHOT’s time-pausing mechanic works so nicely in VR, it’s a shock we haven’t seen extra video games use it to deliver new and fascinating stuff to life. Now, Omega Pilot developer XOCUS says it’s doing simply that with the discharge of Presentiment of Demise, a story-driven VR journey that looks like a mashup of SUPERHOT VR and archery recreation In Demise.
Like SUPERHOT, Presentiment of Demise’s time dilation system means the enemy robots transfer whenever you transfer. The kicker: it’s important to draw your bow, which suggests you’ll have to essentially be your toes because the enemy arrows come flying in whenever you need to return fireplace.
We received’t have to attend lengthy to play both, as XOCUS says it’s releasing the sport on SteamVR headsets on March 1st, with the promise that it’s going to finally arrive on “all VR platform.” When, XOCUS hasn’t mentioned. Within the meantime, you’ll be able to wishlist the sport on Steam here.
Though it mainly appears to be like like SUPERHOT with archery, the trailer exhibits off extra than simply the identical frangible enemies, as there appears to be a couple of completely different enemy varieties, together with a bigger tank enemy and and several other flying varieties too, which should ratchet up the problem.
It’s a disgrace the Superhot group by no means acquired round to creating its SUPERHOT: MIND CONTROL DELETE DLC VR suitable, or pushing any further ranges to the VR recreation, launched in 2017 and nonetheless sitting on the prime of most VR platform charts. Nonetheless, we’re hoping Presentiment of Demise can scratch that itch, if just for previous time’s sake.
