Sony has announced the release date and pricing information for the upcoming VR first person shooter Farpoint, developed by San Francisco-based Impulse Gear; which was first announced at last year’s E3 event.
Farpoint is a sci-fi shooter, set on a distant alien world filled with hostile lifeforms and hazardous environments; as the player explores their surroundings, piecing together what happened and searching for a way home…
Here’s a reminder of the original reveal trailer:
The title is also the first to make use of the new PS Aim controller which puts the game’s high-concept weaponry directly into your hands and allows you to aim via the weapon’s virtual scope for first-person precision.
The controller’s built-in motion sensors and sphere work with the PS Camera to track your movements, offering pinpoint accuracy as you take on the planet’s hostile inhabitants. On top of this, built-in rumble features will deliver immersive real-time feedback every time you squeeze the trigger.
Farpoint launches exclusively for PS VR on 17th May and will be available at retail as a standalone game or bundled along with the PS VR aim controller for that extra level of immersion.
The standalone game is priced at €59.99/£49.99 RRP, or for €89.99/£74.99 RRP you can pick up the Farpoint + PS VR aim controller bundle.
