Popular Gear VR game Gunjack will be arriving to 2 other major Virtual Reality headsets in the near future, those to be the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive. Originally announced like a PC game, the developers went ahead and made a VR version for that Samsung Gear VR headset from the ground up. Now it will likely be launching later this month officially for PC as well as for the Oculus Rift when that headset ships to pre-order owners. Then Gunjack will be landing on the HTC Vive later this season.
For people not familiar with farmville, Gunjack has players taking control of a gun turret, as its primary operator, on a mining vessel within the Outer Ring region of known space. As being a area of the ship’s defense team, your main focus is to protect the rig from pirates, opportunists and other people looking to take what rightfully is one of the company that has hired you.
As with most VR games, Gunjack happens within the first-person perspective, which means you will be seeing pirates and other hostiles coming right to you. So you’ll need to handle your gun turret just like a pro if you want to survive. This also means that Gunjack is more of a pick-up-and-play type of game, whether you are feeling like shooting something. Visually, everything was made within Unreal Engine 4, so it looks very good too.
Gunjack is going to be readily available for the Oculus Rift on March 28th, when the headset begins shipping out. There’s no word on when future HTC Vive owners will be able to grab a duplicate. Either way, it’ll cost $9.99 for a copy of Gunjack.
