Wield a deadly energy blade and proton shield combo and stop a rogue A.I. in BLADESHIELD with the HTC Vive
An intense sci-fi action wave defender, BladeShield tells the story of the Titan-X transport vessel and its advanced onboard A.I., E.L.L.E.N. (Engaging Linguistic Learning Electronic Network). Play as a lone security officer who until now has enjoyed an uneventful, predictable gig. All this changes when the A.I. goes rogue and commands the ship’s replicator to create an army of murderous robots bent on killing every human being in the galaxy. As the sole security officer on the ship, you’ve been tasked with putting a stop to the A.I. and making sure everyone onboard gets out safely.
Arm yourself with two powerful BladeShields, and take on wave after wave of deadly robots to beat E.L.L.E.N. Switch between the light blade and proton shield in each hand — blocking with the shield and swinging the blades for maximum damage. Sawbots, blaster drones, and mega turrets are out to get you — so make sure to block and deflect incoming laser bolts from enemies to charge up your blade. Once you’re done, smash the floor with your energy blade to unleash a massive EMP blast!
How long can you survive? The fate of humanity is in YOUR hands.
