Espire 1: VR Op­er­a­tive

PCPOWERPLAY - - 10 TO WATCH -

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.
