Titles like Fallout 4, Doom, Half-Life 2 and Resident Evil 7 are reissued and reach the new immersive world of 360 degrees.
The experimental stage of virtual reality (VR) came to an end and large studios and some indie labels began to edit the classic titles of their select catalog. But far from a remastering that improves quality and adds aesthetic make-up, the idea is to enjoy the games from a totally new 360 degree immersive perspective. Many compare this possibility that opens with the break that meant the multiplayer mode or fight on a 50-inch HD screen.
To persuade those who still hesitate, Fallout 4 VR, DOOM VFR, LA Noire: The VR Case Files are released this month, adding to existing ones like Half-Life 2: VR, Batman Arkham VR and Resident Evil 7: Biohazard . The available platforms: in PC the games are in the Steam site and you have to have the HTC Vive lens or the Oculus Rift. In consoles, you can play with the PlayStation VR (PSVR).
In the spring of the RV, original controls begin to flourish to control the games. Thus, the Oculus Touch is a movement control system composed of two rings or the Valve Knuckles recognize the fingers of the player. On the other hand, the prototype of the Haptic Skin, uses a tissue to let feel through the skin all the tactile sensations of the virtual environment.
One of the disadvantages that the manufacturers had to solve was the dizziness caused by the displacement inside the screen. One of the best consensual options was teleportation, which consists of pointing a point with a command and pressing a button, a temporary jump occurs and the player appears magically in that place.
At the top of the most anticipated releases of this month is Fallout 4, the role adventure of Bethesda, set in a post-apocalyptic world that resumes with an ambitious adaptation of the Bostonian wilderness. According to its manufacturer, the game is intact, with all its contents and details. Only the combats, the crafting and construction system were modified, so that the action is more fluid in this format.
