Overkill VR, a military first-person shooter designed exclusively for the HTC Vive, has landed on Steam. Originally planned to enter Steam Early Access yesterday, developer Starloop Studios has instead launched the full game for $19.99.
The cover-based FPS takes place in a fictional war zone with the player acting as a member of a resistance group fighting the controlling powers known as “The Faction”. Overkill VR features more than 30 weapons, based on current and future technology, 40-plus hours of gameplay and more than 50 levels.
“With Overkill VR we pursued maximizing the capabilities of the HTC VIVE headset,” said Jesús Bosch, CEO at Game Troopers. “Overkill VR is the first VR shooter made exclusively for HTC VIVE which brings you the look and feel of future war”.
The reason behind Overkill VR’s full release yesterday, rather than its originally planned March 2017 launch, hasn’t been made clear.
