I was lucky enough to be a part of the closed beta for one of the top VR games and without a doubt the gold-standard for VR shooters – Gunheart. The first game by DrifterVR, a studio founded by industry experts, Gunheart puts you into alien worlds as a badass robotic bounty hunter with the goal of keeping humans safe from some seriously scary aliens. The graphics are amazing and the gameplay, designed from the ground up for VR sets a new standard, seriously, I can’t tell you how incredible this game is.
The funny thing is, I’m not a big fan of first person action shooters. I never got into Halo and none of the shooter-related VR titles appealed to me. Honestly it was the team behind Gunheart that first attracted me to the game and then being part of the closed beta was an honor and a ton of fun.
Gunheart just released their biggest update yet and they shot a video with Brian, the Creative Director walking you through all the new goodies. Whether you’ve played the game or not I highly encourage you to watch this video – it’s an incredibly example of a game studio doing everything right…and no I’m not being paid to write this. Oh and if you have a Rift or a Vive, buy the game the moment you finish watching this video and come blast some aliens with me!
