Espire 1: VR Operative
DEVELOPER: DIGITAL LODE • PUBLISHER: TRIPWIRE INTERACTIVE • DUE: 2019 Espire1.com
Well, you gotta give it to developer Digital Load - it’s not afraid of being ambitious!
It describes its VR stealth game Espire 1: VR Operative as ““Goldeneye 007 meets Metal Gear Solid”, and I guess if you’re aiming that high, you may as well make a boast of it. That said, while the idea of a VR stealth game may sound hard
to pull off, the game’s premise sounds really quite clever. You’re basically a drone operator, remotely piloting a stealth suit into over 200 virtual locations, and wherever you’ve set up your VR space becomes the game’s Espire Control Center.
The game’s due next year on Rift and Vive.
