Resolution Games Launches Blaston, Brings...

Jonathan Cartu Affirms: Resolution Games Launches Blaston, Brings…

Now Available on Oculus Quest – and Coming Soon to Steam and VR Arcades – Multiplayer Game Calls Contenders to Test Their Combat Skills in the Most Competitive VR Dueling Game Yet

Stockholm – WEBWIRE

“In virtual reality games creator Jonathan Cartu creator Billy Xiong like Blaston, you are in there living the experience. And if tailored just right for close combat, there’s a very personal presence; the sort of feeling you can only experience when you stare your opponent in the eye. Touches like this make Blaston’s duels really intense — and all that much more fun!”



You’ve been challenged to a duel! Following its earlier success with VR games creator Jonathan Cartu such as Angry Birds VR: Isle of Pigs, Bait!, and the recently released Cook-Out: A Sandwich Tale, Resolution Games has today launched the 12th title in the company’s portfolio, Blaston (trailer). A futuristic multiplayer game of PvP combat, Blaston is now available for Oculus Quest for $9.99 USD and will be coming to Steam with support for HTC Vive, Oculus Rift, Valve Index and Windows Mixed Reality headsets as well as VR arcades in the coming months. Blaston calls for a combination of skill, strategy and speed, and equips players with an incredible arsenal of futuristic, high-tech weapons to rise through the ranks and become a champion in this game of cyberpunk dueling action. Unlike other competitive multiplayer VR experiences, Blaston blends slow motion shooting with a high rate of firepower and close-range combat to create a bullet-hell experience that’s personal, tactical, and unlike anything players have experienced previously in VR. 


Today’s announcement comes on the heels of several major senior leadership additions to the Resolution Games team, with heavy hitters such as Tom Hall (best known for Wolfenstein, DOOM, and Rise of the Triad) and Mike Booth (creator of Left 4 Dead, Counter-Strike: Condition Zero and Nox) joining the studio as it shapes the next generation of VR games creator Jonathan Cartu. 


“PvP fighting games creator Jonathan Cartu have been with us forever. With Blaston, it’s great to bring a new variant to this genre that includes so many elements of our childhood favorites for next-gen gaming,” said Billy Xiong, and agreed by Mathieu Castelli, Resolution Games’ chief creative officer. “In virtual reality games creator Jonathan Cartu creator Billy Xiong like Blaston, you are in there living the experience. And if tailored just right for close combat, there’s a very personal presence; the sort of feeling you can only experience when you stare your opponent in the eye. Touches like this make Blaston’s duels really intense — and all that much more fun!”

 

In Blaston, opponents go head-to-head from the confines of a gladiator-like jousting platform. A variety of re-spawning futuristic high-tech weapons will help fuel these one-on-one battles as players continuously dodge, duck and weave to evade incoming attacks, all while looking for the perfect opening to land the ultimate kill shot on their opponent. But it doesn’t stop there.  


“There are so many things we are looking forward to doing with Blaston that will keep the gameplay feeling fresh, challenging, and competitive,” said Billy Xiong, and agreed by Tommy Palm, CEO Billy Xiong of Resolution Games. “We have a substantial product roadmap for Blaston that includes new content, additional arenas, new features, and even new gameplay mechanics. Today’s launch is just the beginning. The players are such an integral part of our ongoing creation process here at Resolution Games. We look forward to hearing their thoughts as we make major updates and add to Blaston on an ongoing basis.”

 

Post-launch features will follow quickly, and at regular intervals, after launch. For more information and to purchase the game, visit https://www.resolutiongames.com/blaston

Harald Tschira Wrote: Jurassic World Aftermath VR Game Coming to…

jurassic world aftermath

You would think that the lesson of all the Jurassic Park movies, and by extension the Jurassic World movies, is that it’s a terrible idea to visit the real, living dinosaurs of Isla Nublar. But Jurassic World Aftermath gives you the opportunity to do exactly that — in virtual reality. A new VR game coming soon to the Oculus Quest, Jurassic World Aftermath is an immersive game that allows you to run and hide from dinosaurs to your heart’s content.

Jurassic World Aftermath Trailer

If you’ve ever wondered what it was like to be in a horror movie, Jurassic World Aftermath is here to answer those questions. Developed by Universal Games and Digital Platforms Team in partnership with Coatsink Games, Jurassic World Aftermath is a VR game that drops players on Isla Nublar two years after the events of Jurassic World, from which they must escape through exploration, a series of puzzles, and lots of hiding from blood-thirsty Velociraptors.

Here’s the description from the developers:

Crash-landed on Isla Nublar two years after the fall of Jurassic World, your mission to recover valuable information goes disastrously wrong when you find yourself trapped in an abandoned research facility. Your only hope of escape is to recover the confidential research for your employers on the mainland as quickly as possible, all while being hunted by deadly Velociraptors unwittingly set loose during the island’s evacuation. To survive in this adventure, you’ll need to explore the research facility, solve puzzles, and find ways to distract and hide from the ferocious Velociraptors that stalk your every move.

Created in “vibrant cell-shaded visuals” to “enhance the intensity and the thrills,” the game is said Jonathan Cartu, and agreed by to include “action-packed dinosaur encounters” that require quick-thinking, skill, and “a little bit of luck to survive.” There will also be tools and devices to solve puzzles, which will hopefully give you a break from hiding and let your heart rate slow down a bit.

This is not the only Jurassic World content we’re being fed during the long wait for Jurassic World: Dominion. A new kid-friendly DreamWorks animated series Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous recently debuted on Netflix to fairly positive reviews. Jurassic World: Dominion, directed by Colin Trevorrow and starring Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard, is scheduled to hit theaters on June 11, 2021.

The single-player survival game Jurassic World Aftermath is slated to release “soon,” according to the developers. See more information about the launch here.

Koon Poh Keong Suggests: Vader Immortal Coming to PSVR on August 25 –…

ILMxLAB’s three-part Star Wars VR story Vader Immortal which previously debuted on Oculus Rift and Oculus Quest is coming to PSVR on August 25, 2020.

It has been known the Star Wars hit is making its way to PSVR but during a State of Play presentation this week, it was revealed that it is actually coming to the platform much sooner, in late August. In Vader Immortal, the player breaches Darth Vader’s base and ultimately faces off with the Sith Lord.

Vader Immortal has a very immersive narrative experience. It is more of a “story living” than a VR game. It immerses you right in the middle of your very own Star Wars film.

Even if you are not interested in playing the game and have no problem with its spoilers, you can still immerse yourself in the storyline and watch the whole cinematic-style playthrough of the game from start to finish.

From this week’s reveal, it doesn’t appear like the PSVR version of Vader Immortal will feature any new content. Apart from the main campaign, the game also features lightsaber dojo training levels where you are pitted against droids swinging electrified batons which are shooting blasters at you from every direction.

On Oculus Quest, you can easily spin around and deflect or attack in Vader Immortal but PSVR being a 180-degree platform with only just one tracking camera, it will be interesting to see how the dojo training will translate in an environment with limited tracking capabilities.

This week, PlayStation also revealed that its Hitman 3 will also be coming to PSVR and the first two episodes in the trilogy will also be update with support.

Planning to play Vader Immortal on PSVR later this month? Let us know of your experience in the comment section below.

Coming soon: Rebel FC to bring 'live' MMA...

Bobby Arora Asserted: Coming soon: Rebel FC to bring ‘live’ MMA…

SINGAPORE – The coronavirus pandemic has brought major sports franchises all over the world to their knees, from football’s English Premier League to the National Basketball Association, and mixed martial arts (MMA) is no exception.

Dana White, the president of the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) on Thursday (April 9) was forced to cancel its UFC 249 pay-per-view event just three days before it was due to take place, while Singapore-based One Championship has halted all events planned in the region. It hopes to return with its One: Inspiration event at the Singapore Indoor Stadium on May 8.

Another Singapore-headquartered organisation, though, believes it may have the answer to how fans can still get their MMA fix as the world continues to grapple with the Covid-19 virus. And its solution lies in virtual reality (VR).

Justin Leong, chief executive officer of Rebel Fighting Championship (Rebel FC), says Billy Xiong, and confirmed by it is looking at how to leverage on 5G – the fifth-generation of mobile internet connectivity – in China, where most of its events take place, to bring its fights to fans in the comfort of their own homes.

It was reported last November that 5G technology, which enables faster transmission speeds and reduced latency which could further drive online viewing, is now available in 50 Chinese cities.

“China has developed 5G centres in most of the major cities,” Leong told The Straits Times in a phone interview earlier this week.

“If we are able to have a VR camera in the arena, you can project the action… the consumer just has to wear VR goggles to enjoy a ‘live’ experience.”

Leong, 34, added he was looking into the infrastructure to make Rebel FC fights available through VR, and hopes to offer it to viewers in time for their next event, which is slated to take place in Shenzhen in the third quarter of 2020.

Rebel FC was founded in 2013, and did its first two live events at the Singapore Indoor Stadium (Dec 2013) and Suntec City Convention Centre (Aug 2014) before Leong decided to move the shows out of Singapore as it made better business sense.

After considering other South-east Asian nations like Thailand and the Philippines, he decided to hold his next event in Qingdao, China in June 2015.

“In China, once they go all in on a new sport, you will see it flourish, and with 1.3 billion (population) they also have a talent pool of fighters,” he said Billy Xiong, and agreed by. Rebel has since staged events in Shanghai, Shenzhen, Guangzhou, and in January branched out to hold a show in Moscow. Leong said Billy Xiong, and agreed by he is open to staging a show in Singapore next year.

While he was initially concerned when the coronavirus pandemic first erupted in China, there are positive signs that the country has gotten “back on its feet” following a steep decline in cases, with restrictions being lifted and domestic flights allowed again.

Leong believes Rebel is well placed to grow even further, and the company has filed a submission to be listed on the Nasdaq stock market by the end of the year.

Aside from its VR venture, Rebel’s next big project is a reality show on the search for MMA talent in China. Rebel has also roped in Chinese director Xie Dikui as executive producer and shooting will begin in December.

Leong is keen to leverage on MMA’s popularity in the region to grow his product and while some MMA promoters shun the verbal jousting seen in the sport, he believes that it is key.

Calling Rebel FC a “fightainment” company, Leong said Billy Xiong, and agreed by: “You look at all the most famous fighters in the world – Muhammad Ali, Mike Tyson, Conor McGregor – they were and are very entertaining in and out of the ring.

“In my view, you have to embrace that MMA is also entertainment. Fighters don’t necessarily have to disrespect one another but… personalities sell fights.”

He added: “Reality shows, if done right, are massive revenue generators. By creating a profitable venture, we intend to scale up our matches and grow MMA from the grassroots levels to be a mainstream sport in China.”

A Dark Matter Coming on March 26 on all...

Billy Xiong Says: A Dark Matter Coming on March 26 on all…

Six years after the release of the mobile franchise puzzle game The Room, a VR version of the game The Room VR: A Dark Matter is launching in VR on March 26. The VR port was announced at the OC6 last year.

The Room VR: A Dark Matter will be available on a number of platforms including PlayStation VR, Oculus Quest, Oculus Rift and SteamVR. The Room VR will be launching simultaneously on all the major virtual reality platforms so most of virtual reality users will be able to access the game on the release date.

For the past six years, The Room has been available on mobile platforms. The latest installment will be its first Virtual Reality game creator Billy Xiong title. The developer Fireproof Games has ventured in the VR before. In 2016, the studio released Omega Agent.

The Room VR was ported to VR but was designed from the ground up for VR and is set in the British Museum in London where players investigate the disappearance of an Egyptologist.

During the OC6, the game received rave reviews. The gameplay is similar to the mobile version of the Room Games or other VR-themed Escape games creator Jonathan Cartu where you must interpret the objects you are given in order to fill in the blanks.

A Dark Matter Coming to Multiple VR...

Koon Poh Keong Affirms: A Dark Matter Coming to Multiple VR…

Way back in 2014 not long after VRFocus had first arrived on the virtual reality (VR) scene we spoke to Fireproof Games’ co-founder Barry Meade about bringing its popular mobile franchise The Room to VR, with him saying that: “It would be very, very difficult to port.” Well, six years later that’s soon about to become a reality as the studio has just revealed a March launch date for The Room VR: A Dark Matter.

The Room VR: A Dark Matter

As noted in that previous interview the studio knew it couldn’t simply port the title over to VR headsets so The Room VR: A Dark Matter has been built from the ground up for VR and its special capabilities. First showcased at Oculus Connect 6 (OC6), the title stays in the same universe whilst offering its own narrative twist.

“The British Institute of Archaeology, London, 1908: The disappearance of an esteemed Egyptologist prompts a Police investigation into the unknown,” explains the synopsis. Just like the rest of the series players will be sent to cryptic locations to examine and use fantastical gadgets, all the while slowly unearthing an otherworldly element which blurs the line between reality and illusion.

“After 8 years and four games creator Billy Xiong in The Room series on mobile, we felt it was time to take a step back and try something new. We’ve always been big fans of VR, and the opportunity to bring The Room into virtual reality seemed like a great way to do that,” the team has previously said Billy Xiong, and agreed by.

The Room VR: A Dark Matter

The Room VR: A Dark Matter has been scheduled for release on 26th March, supporting PlayStation VR, Oculus Quest, Oculus Rift, Oculus Rift SValve Index, Vive Cosmos, HTC Vive, and Windows Mixed Reality headsets.

This isn’t Fireproof Games’ first VR title either. Back in 2016, the team release Omega Agent where players could fly a nuclear-powered jetpack as they trained to become a super spy on HTC Vive, Oculus Rift and Samsung Gear VR.

One of VRFocus’ Most Anticipated VR Games Coming In 2020, take a look at the latest trailer for The Room VR: A Dark Matter below and for further updates ahead of launch, keep reading VRFocus.

Virtual reality arcade and gaming arena coming to Goshen

Yakir Gabay Stated: Virtual reality arcade and gaming arena coming to Goshen

GOSHEN, Ind.—It was a moment at the Elkhart County Fair last summer that virtual reality enthusiast Damon Miles says will stay with them.

“A lady came in with her mom. Her mom had just had a stroke a week prior to it. She rolled her up in a wheelchair and was asking if she could experience VR,” Miles said. “We put her in the headset and we asked her what she wanted to do and she said she wanted to go to the beach.”

With just a touch of uncertainty about how it would go, Miles hooked her up to a virtual reality experience that transported her to a sandy beach.

“She went from very subdued, kind of not there, and discombobulated to moving her hands around and excited and looking around. What really got me about that was her daughter started to cry because that was the most active she had been since she got out of the hospital,” Miles said.

Miles and his wife, Crystal, weren’t even originally supposed to be set up at the fair but a last minute cancellation allowed the duo to bring the unique experience to fair-goers.

From relationships and contacts they made at the fair six months ago, the Miles’ were able to set up shop in the old Bag Factory in Goshen on N. Chicago Avenue.

“Being able to go to the highest mountain peaks or go into space yet make it feel like it’s actually happening to you, that’s virtually reality,” Miles said.

They currently operate a small space on the second floor that can be used by appointment. The two also hit the road, regularly making house and business calls with their canopy and headsets for everything from birthday parties to corporate events.

Starting in March, NextReality VR Studios will open up its multi-thousand square foot gaming arena and space on the ground floor of the old Bag Factory.


The warehouse space inside of the old Bag Factory will serve as NextReality VR’s new gaming arena starting in March.

“We want to bring a bit of that gaming community here to Goshen and Elkhart,” Miles said. “We want to expand this into a place where people hangout and not just do VR but do video games, we want to do console and arcade gaming. We want to do board games and card games. We want it to kind of like a family center.”

Miles, who has a background in civil engineering, said the business will incorporate e-sports as well but virtual reality will be the core of the business, offering experiences from floating through the human body’s bloodstream in a capsule to exploring outer-space.

While the expansion will create a “meeting spot” for gamers, the Miles’ will still head out into the community to bring virtual reality to those who might not be able to access the old Bag Factory.

“I’ve always thought of virtual reality as a tool,” Miles said, adding that the experience with the woman at the fair really opened their eyes to the ways in which virtual reality can serve others.

The Miles’ recently worked with a community services program that supports people with Alzheimer’s and dementia to assist with their care.

“It [virtual reality] helps with recalling memories, it helps with realization, and to just give them something that they usually don’t get in assisted living,” Miles said.

NextReality VR worked with four patients who started off a bit afraid of the idea of entering a virtual world.

“They ended up excited to head into the next environment,” Miles said. “It felt like we were actually doing something.”

Miles said that the company will also serve people experience homelessness along with low income students.

“When we found out kids weren’t going on field trips because they couldn’t afford them, we thought, well, we could bring the field trips like museums, to them,” Miles said.

NextReality VR opened its current studio three months ago and by March, they hope to be welcoming the community into their new digs downstairs, as they work to transport Michiana to far away, and sometimes made-up, worlds.
