    New York Finally Confirmed For Marvel Powers United VR

    For all of the exotic comic book locations confirmed for Marvel: Powers United VR thus far, the staple of superhero land hasn’t yet been confirmed. That changes today.

    Yes, downtown New York City will be available in the game when it launches next week. The war-torn streets will resemble something like the climactic battle of the original Avengers movie, with train cars spilling off of tracks and debris everywhere. Any Marvel fans knows that New York is where most of the heroes like to hang their hat, so it’s great to see it finally confirmed for the game.

    Also confirmed today is Attlian, the kingdom of the Inhumans, ruled over by Black Bolt, which has at times hovered over New York itself. Expect an Asgard-like sprawling city to do battle in.

    Not long to wait now; Marvel: Powers United VR launches exclusively on the Oculus Rift on July 26th. We’re expecting more announcements for the game at Comic-Con tomorrow.

    Gorgeous VR Adventure Torn Releases Next Month

    It looks like one of the best-looking VR games of 2018 will be with us in a few short weeks.

    Torn from Aspyr games just got a pre-order listing on the PlayStation Store, which itself states the game is launching on August 28th. We’ve reached out to the developer to confirm the date is accurate. The page also confirms the game will cost $29.99, but if you pre-order you can get it for 15% off (or 20% if you’re a PS Plus member).

    The game’s also coming to the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive, though we don’t see any release dates listed on those respective stores right now.

    In Torn you play as Katherine Patterson, a video blogger that discovers a forgotten mansion deep in the heart of a thick forest. You explore the abandoned building, finding out about the life of Dr. Lawrence Talbot, who lived there until his strange disappearance over 64 years ago. Solving puzzles as you go, you begin to piece together what happened to Talbot and his work with another dimension. Expect to manipulate objects with telekinesis, pull switches and visit other realities.

    One of the most notable things about the game, though, is that it’s visually stunning. Meticulously detailed mansion rooms and a gorgeous surrounding forest as just begging to be explored in VR. It looks like a treat for the eyes and, based on our recent preview, we’re hoping the gameplay measures up too.

    Check Out Hundreds Of Augmented World Expo Videos

    Augmented World Expo, or AWE, is one of the biggest conferences in the world focused on AR. The most recent AWE conference was held from May 30 to June 1 and featured a wide array of demos and presentations from across the spectrum of AR and VR experiences. Now you can check out hundreds of videos posted from sessions and presentations at the event.

    Hundreds of videos available free on YouTube offer hours of content for professionals to peruse for tidbits and insights into work with VR or AR. Subjects range considerably from outlining new approaches to 6DoF tracking to how best to tell stories in AR. I’ll break out some of the individual sessions which grabbed my attention near the end of the post, but here are some playlists grouping together various AWE videos:

  • Warzone VR Teases Large-Scale VR FPS Multiplayer Battles On Rift, Vive, and PSVR
    Warzone VR Teases Large-Scale VR FPS Multiplayer Battles On Rift, Vive, and PSVR

    Developers are still working hard at trying to figure out what exactly works best in VR shooters. There have been plenty of great examples of how to adapt traditional game design to VR in a way that works and plenty of games have nailed that magical sense of VR immersion. But we’re still waiting on a really high-fidelty large-scale VR FPS that feels as epic as its setting wants us to believe it is. As it stands, SinnStudio seem to be aiming to make Warzone VR that game.

    We can’t tell much from the teaser trailer (embedded below) but the company’s press kit includes some lofty goals in the included fact sheet. Reportedly, there will be a large selection of weapons (such as shotguns, pistols, SMGs, ARs, and more) and vehicles as well as big maps ranging in sizes from 2x2km up to 4x4km.

    Warzone VR seems to be going for a tactical military vibe, along the same lines of Onward, but on much larger maps as “multiple teams/squads compete simultaneously to dominate the map” with teams supposedly consisting of up to five players and even as many as 10 teams on a single map. Game modes will be objective based and not focused strictly on “senseless killing” so it’s not a battle royale game.

    To keep things fresh, the developers intend to randomize some objectives and events during matches, requiring sudden shifts in gameplay strategy.

    And that’s all we know so far. A more thorough gameplay trailer should be arriving soon with more details as the game is already slated for a Fall 2018 release on PC VR headsets with a PSVR release following shortly after. Hopefully the PSVR version includes PS Aim support too.

    Let us know what you think of the game from what you’ve seen down in the comments below!
