If you’re looking for a static and peaceful VR game with limited movement, no unexpected turns, and where you can generally play it safe, you should probably move along, there’s nothing to see here. But if you’re looking for excitement, or just want to see if you have the guts to dive deep into space, Detached is for you, and it launches today on the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift. “Buckle your seatbelt, Dorothy, because Kansas is going bye-bye”.
If you’re keen on space exploration, watch the launch trailer and see for yourself what Anshar Studios have been working on!
The game is now available on Steam (http://store.steampowered.com/app/436230/Detached/) and the Oculus Store (https://www.oculus.com/experiences/rift/945551678861092/) for $24.99 / €24.99.
There’s no other VR game that offers such exceptionally dynamic gameplay. The unlimited omnidirectional movement in space promises an unforgettable and at times extreme experience.
“Detached breaks all the barriers that have been put in place so far in the creation of VR games,” says Łukasz Hacura, CEO of Anshar Studios. “Most current VR games are aimed at minimizing the problem of experiencing nausea while playing. In Detached, the player’s unlimited freedom is a fundamental aspect of the game”.
Challenge a friend to Detached’s PvP mode and have fun outsmarting them! This variation on the popular capture-the-flag mode will test your control skills and challenge you to outwit your enemy with the advanced abilities of the EVA suit.
The extremely atmospheric environment allows you to experience the intense immersive feeling that comes with VR devices, giving you extraordinary sensations. On top of that, players using the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift can count on full controller support, further enhancing the gameplay experience.
- Go Hardcore – Experience 360-degree freedom of movement, rotation, and acceleration in a sandbox environment built for VR headsets.
- Blast, Splinter, and Charge – Use the Shield, Boost, and Rockets skills in both single-player and multiplayer modes. Hit targets with the homing missiles built into your suit. Master weapon cooldown times before your opponent gets the upper hand. Gain temporary immunity with the shield skill. Exploit boosting tunnels to gain a speed advantage.
- It’s Getting Atmospheric – Discover the big black beyond inspired by the sublimity of Gravity, while you are accompanied by the fully orchestrated score composed by Mikołaj Stroiński (The Witcher 3, The Vanishing of Ethan Carter).
- Astronaut Drills – Get to grips with your spacesuit’s controls in zero-G through a dynamic tutorial before venturing into outer space. FPS-style steering will introduce newbies and those sensitive to VR playing to the hardcore VR experience.
Warning: Detached is an extreme VR experience that simulates sudden and dramatic acceleration, freefalling, twisting, and rolling. Even at 90 fps, it is not for VR-sensitive players!
Detached offers controller support for the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive. It is now available (with achievements) for purchase on Steam and the Oculus Store.
