Knowing that I would be miserable taking this approach, I have instead opted to outsource this project to an experienced VR development agency.
KAT VR has been a specialist in the virtual reality (VR) locomotion space for several years now, launching its first Kickstarter campaign in 2015 for the rather large Kat Walk omnidirectional treadmill.
Half Life: Alyx will include 3 different options for locomotion at launch: Teleport Dash Continuous Unfortunately, the game lacks a true free-locomotion option where the players view is persistent and uninterrupted as it would be in any traditional game (or most modern VR games).
This Half-Life: Alyx gameplay footage shows more headcrab zombie combat and the crafting machine at work.
Sanzaru Games made some pretty big claims about Asgard’s Wrath when it was first revealed earlier this year, calling it their “deepest title yet” and promising 30+ hours of first-person combat, dungeoning, and all of the RPG goodness you could hope for.
And react it does—seemingly everything in the game responds to you in some subtle, organic way, either by moving or making sound, giving you a rich sense of actually being part of the world.
Silkin and his team at Survios are near-famous around the VR gaming industry for having developed four of VR’s most well-funded titles to date: Raw Data, Sprint Vector , Electronauts, and Creed: Rise to Glory .
Freediver: Triton Down is a mysterious VR adventure game just announced today from Archiact, the developers behind co-op bullet hell VR shooter, Evasion . This means you’ll move around by using “intuitive dive and swim movements” in the game, which sounds similar to underwater swimming in Skyrim VR.
Each of the mini-games is explained clearly by the robots and you really just need to move the controllers, use the trigger and occasionally wave to interact with most things. Items from one mini-game are sometimes used in unexpected ways elsewhere, so you can experiment with how things interact.
In VR the problem is that we’re generally focusing on objects through our hands, highlighting them through our controllers, and pressing triggers to use them, forming a point-and-shoot feedback loop not only for interacting with our environment, but other people.
Apex Construct [8/10 on Rift] is a single-player story-driven action adventure game featuring bow and arrow combat. We expect Dead and Buried 2 to also feature cross-buy since it is an Oculus Studios title and we got the chance to try it out on Quest earlier this year at GDC .
3DRudder, the foot-controlled VR locomotion peripheral, has been officially available for PC VR users for around two years now, although the Marseille, France-based company has been working in the meantime to refine their design and also bring it to PSVR too.
VRTP has already benefited developers using Unity and as of today, it is available to Unreal developers too – meaning that Unreal apps may now readily evaluate and incorporate these comfortable locomotion features without impacting schedule or cost, especially since VRTP is free and open-sourced on all platforms.
The good news is that the device comes with a swivel chair the user can sit on to move in, and an anti-static mat. Fitness enthusiasts especially will appreciate performance on the Bethesda titles, or in games like Sairento.

The question is, how do you get some serious calorie burn out of Rec Room if you’re looking to play something that’s active, but low-intensity? Which is your favorite Rec Room game mode to play?
Chris Bolton, Creative Director at Astrofish Games, talked with us about their new VR title Ground Runner: Trials, its development in Unity, dealing with motion sickness, testing stage and more.
If you can keep one glove up blocking and punch with the other that’ll make him go for the punch and open up his face and body for the pummel. Remember to recoup your stamina by dodging and using locomotion to get away for a bit if you punch at him quickly.
Survios and MGM are releasing their single and multiplayer PvP boxing title, CREED: Rise to Glory, today September 25th. In CREED: Rise to Glory, players learn advanced locomotion or barreling their arms like they’re hitting a speed bag.
