Recently, there’s been a lot of games and experiences releasing on the Oculus Rift. Oculus has been working hard with developers and studios to release IPs that are enjoyable to play in VR. Next month, there’ll be another big VR game to look forward to as Gunfire Games will be releasing From Other Suns on November 14th for the Oculus Rift.
For those of you unfamiliar with the title, From Other Suns is a co-op VR space adventure game that’ll take you to the edges of the universe. The story revolves around a crew of people who recently tested an experimental folding drive to travel beyond the fringes of explored space. The plan was to return safely for a big payout, and retire on small colony to never be heard from again.
But things don’t go as planned. On the return trip, something followed you back. Something ancient. Now it’s a race to make it back to Earth before the ancient alien threat wipes out everything in its way – including you.
You’ll find danger at every jump on this side of the galaxy with ruthless pirates, lethal robots, and deadly aliens that stand in your way. You and your friends will tour the sector upgrading your ship, stockpiling weapons, and fighting for your lives.
- Co-Op or Single Player – Built for 3 player drop-in co-op action or a great solo experience.
- Be the captain – Manage your own ship and its crew, upgrade your systems and weapons while negotiating with merchants and avoiding pirate raiders.
- Huge Gun Variety – Over a dozen unique weapon types, with over 2,000 possible variations
- Randomized Universe – No two playthroughs are the same! From encounters to locations, never have the same experience twice.
- Rogue-lite – Run out of crew members and your mission is over! A running tally of achievements allows you to work towards unlocking powerful weapons and better ships, allowing you to progress further on each subsequent playthrough.
Gunfire Games held an open beta for From Other Suns earlier this month that went on to impressive a lot of people. Now the official release is only a few weeks away. For those of you interested in the game, you can pre-order From Other Suns on the Oculus Store for $34.99.
