‘Überläufer’ is a Wolfenstein-inspired Roguelike Coming to PC VR This Fall

Published

on

Überläufer is an upcoming roguelike dungeon crawler for PC VR that’s inspired by the original Castle Wolfenstein (1981), the first in the series which put a heavy emphasis on stealthily evading capture as you escape the game’s maze-like prison.

Created by indie studio Think Tank Decoy Software, Überläufer (‘defector’ in German) puts you in the jack boots of a 1940s Wehrmacht solider who is imprisoned by the SS for opposing the Nazi regime. With the help of the resistance, you gather the items you need escape as you fight, persuade, and sneak your way out of the procedurally-generated dungeon.

To escape, you’ll have to contend with collecting randomly-generated objectives, like taking photographs of specific objects using a 1938 Leica camera. Along the way, you’ll also run across things like letters between a former prisoner and his wife, and real leaflets and dossiers published by the German & Austrian resistance.

In the game’s infectiously retro user manual, the studio says the player will earn experience points throughout their runs which can be used to unlock things like perks, weapons, boobytraps, and enemy uniforms which let you temporarily bypass unnoticed.

You’ll only be able to hit the store once before each run though, Think Tank Decoy says, so you have to spend your points wisely as you’re given a new avatar, and have to search for new objectives in the randomly-generated rooms.

Überläufer is slated to arrive on PC VR headsets via Steam Early Access sometime in Fall 2021, supporting Valve Index, Oculus Rift, and HTC Vive headsets. You can wishlist it on Steam here.

I Expect You To Die 2 builds upon everything our community loved about the first game, and we’re excited to take players on another adventure filled with espionage,” said Jesse Schell, CEO of Schell Games in a statement. “Wil and Puddles have been amazing to work with, and their enthusiasm has helped us expand the I Expect You To Die universe in compelling new ways. With Wil Wheaton bringing life to John Juniper, and Puddles’s dynamic performance of the new theme song, we’re confident players will feel immersed in this rich, story-driven evolution of the original game.”

NERF Battles are Coming to Oculus Quest in 2022

Published

on

It’s been a couple of years since Secret Location’s last virtual reality (VR) title Transpose but the studio is probably better known for its bullet hell shooter Blasters of the Universe. For the start of the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) 2021 today, Secret Location has begun teasing its next project, NERF Ultimate Championship.

Collaborating with NERF to bring those classic battles all kids know and love into VR, NERF Ultimate Championship is about digitally recreating that excitement pitting players against each other in team-based wars. Players will be able to select from a range of NERF blasters before heading into an arena to leap around and dodge darts in an effort to win the quick, physical matches.

NERF Ultimate Championship marks an important milestone for us as the first collaboration with our new parent company Hasbro,” said, Kathryn Rawson, VP Content, Secret Location in a statement. “Everyone on the team is excited to bring those epic Nerf battles from our childhood into the immersive world of VR and to the growing Oculus Quest audience when the game launches next year.”  

Outside of the arena players will be able to customise their avatars and blasters with plenty of vibrant designs the brand is known for. NERF fans will get a chance to go hands-on with the videogame later this year as Secret Location will be hosting exclusive playtest sessions.

“We are thrilled to partner with Secret Location to take our legacy brand NERF to new heights through the immersion of virtual reality,” stated Scott Ozarski, Brand Manager, Global Brand Marketing for NERF. “It translates the imaginative play, high physicality and fun competition that characterizes the property to an all-new and exciting medium for our fans.”

NERF Ultimate Championship is going to be an Oculus Quest by the looks of it, due to arrive for the standalone headset at some point in 2022. Check out the teaser trailer below although there’s no gameplay footage at the moment. As and when further details for NERF Ultimate Championship are released, VRFocus will keep you updated.

Waltz of the Wizard’s Natural Magic Update Confirmed for July

Published

on

Virtual reality (VR) developer Aldin has been teasing its next big update for Waltz of the Wizard since 2020. Called “Natural Magic” its set to feature new locations as well a reworked spell casting system to make it feel, well…more natural. Today, as part of a slew of VR announcements to kick off the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) 2021 this week the studio has confirmed the update will arrive next month.

Waltz of the Wizard

Previous updates like the “Telepath” movement system added incremental improvements, whereas Natural Magic will be Aldin’s largest expansion to date. Starting off in a peaceful courtyard sandbox where players can practice and play with the new magic system, they’ll find intuitive controls to pick up distant objects or unleash devastating attacks. This is useful as the other area is the Fortress, a sprawling location home to the Observers, interdimensional beings that harness magic to control time and space.

These “Observers” are the bad guys, of course, and to get to them players will encounter a variety of enemies to wield their magic against. The Fortress also houses hidden artefacts which might be useful. It’s also the first location the developer has built that is procedurally generated, so each run-through will be slightly different.

Waltz of the Wizard: Natural Magic will have plenty of other interesting features for hours of entertainment, including mic input which turns a players voice into magical soundwaves to attack foes, enemies with detachable bodyparts and believable defensive reactions, and user health shown by their fingers turning skeletal.

Waltz of the Wizard

Waltz of the Wizard: Natural Magic is set to launch on 6th July 2021 as a free update for existing owners of the videogame. There is a slight caveat in the fact that the update will be for SteamVR and Oculus headsets but not for PlayStation VR. Aldin’s CEO Hrafn Thorisson previously said in November 2020 that future updates for the headset were on hold due to the lack of info regarding a PlayStation VR 2 (at the time).
