Epic Games took to the stage at Oculus Connect 3 today to announce Robo Recall, an action-packed virtual reality first-person shooter with gratifying gameplay and an in-depth scoring system that takes full advantage of the Oculus Touch controllers. In Robo Recall, players explore immersive environments in VR as they take on a variety of rogue robots and unlock an expanding arsenal of weapons. Robo Recall is coming in early 2017 and will be free for all Oculus Rift owners.
In this new Unreal Engine 4-powered game, players earn high scores by using creative combat tactics and skill shots as they teleport through city streets and rooftops in an awe-inspiring ballet of bullets.
“VR provides a level of immersion like never before. Our goal with Robo Recall is to take advantage of these new tools to provide an over-the-top, memorable and replayable experience that defines a new generation of shooter,” said Producer Tommy Jacob. “Robo Recall builds on what we learned from Bullet Train in regard to creating an exciting, visceral and comfortable VR experience. We’ve refined and expanded our Touch integration and interaction mechanics, added free movement teleportation that allows the player to explore the environments and made significant improvements to our art quality.”
As seen in the official announce trailer above, players can tear apart their interactive robot foes and use them as weapons against the enemy onslaught. Throughout the course of the game, players will unlock, customize and test weapons back at RoboReady HQ before taking on the increasingly challenging missions that put their newfound skills to the test.
