The newly formed Orange Bridge Studios recently announced End Space will soon arrive for Playstation VR. Its creator, Justin Wasilenko originally created the game about a year ago for Samsung Gear VR.
If you’ve found Elite: Dangerous a little slow then End Space may be a preferable option. It features a full fledged campaign for players to blast through. Piloting the Minos Starfighter, players will have the ability to aim with head movement. Not too dissimilar to RIGS. This is a great feature in VR space flight as it allows the player to maneuver and aim weapons simultaneously. Wasilenko believes it a great tool for better immersing players in a space flight VR scenario.
End Space Will Feature Pro Support
Speaking on the Playstation blog, he states “We’ve been working hard to create a space combat simulator that really showcases the advantages of gaming in virtual reality”. For owners of a PS4 Pro, there will also be many enhancements to look forward to. These include higher polygon counts, post processing effects and sharper textures.
End Space’s story is about a resource mining company called the UTC. During the events of the game, it finds itself in the farthest reaches of explored space containing resource rich planets, ripe for the mining. Yet, gameplay won’t set the player as a miner. An insurgency group called the Tartarus Liberation Front has emerged. They want the UTC gone and to have full autonomy over this sector in space. As their attacks become untenable, we the player are called in to thin the attacking forces.
From the release date of September 19th, End Space will cost £15 / $20. This leads us to believe that, sadly like most VR experiences available, End Space will be quite short. But here’s a heads up for you! During its first week of release, PS Plus subscribers will be treated to a 10% discount.
