Not happy with bringing snow trolls and hellspawn to costly cyber goggles, Bethesda are bringing two extra of their video games to VR – Prey and Wolfenstein. Wolfenstein: Cyberpilot and Prey: Typhon Hunter are set of their respective universes and, of the 2, Typhon Hunter appears essentially the most fascinating. It’s a prop hunt-like little bit of multiplayer conceal and search, wherein 5 gamers are mimics pretending to be on a regular basis objects, and one participant is Morgan Yu, looking for and kill them. “Typhon Hunter is a deadly game of cat and mouse,” say Bethesda, “except in this instance the cat is sometimes a trashcan or a bottle of cleaning supplies and the mouse has a shotgun.”
It’s not its personal sport, however can be launched in summer time as a free multiplayer replace to Prey: Mooncrash, the brand new roguelike DLC that has you crawling through a moonbase. The conceal and search mode can be playable exterior of VR as properly, say the Bethbods, and there’ll even be one other type of VR mode for individuals who don’t wish to play with peeps. This one, known as TranStar VR, can be a solo ‘escape the room’ model mode wherein you remedy puzzles aboard the Talos I station. It’ll even be a free replace for individuals who have the Mooncrash DLC.
Wolfenstein: Cyberpilot, in the meantime, is a standalone VR sport, not a freebie. It’s set in Paris of the alt-1980s, the identical interval as the brand new co-op expandapack, Wolfenstein: Youngblood, which options BJ’s fighty daughters. I’ll let the Bethers provide the rundown on Cyberpilot:
Wolfenstein: Cyberpilot drops you into the position of a resistance hacker on a mission to tear aside the Nazi forces in Paris utilizing their very own machines. Take management of a fire-breathing Panzerhund and extra as you battle Nazis within the City of Love with the intention to help the French resistance.
It’ll be out someday in 2019, they are saying. We’ve bought no footage of both of those, soz. But you’ll be able to in all probability count on some floating weapons and confined areas.
