Turbo Soccer VR uses HTC Vive trackers to make virtual football feel more real.
For many people the idea of being a professional football player is a childhood dream. Developer Dodo4Story Games have tried to make that dream a reality in Turbo Soccer VR, and have recruited a professional football player to help them realise their goal.
Professional footballer Kamil Grosicki is regarded as one of the best players in the Polish national soccer team, and has been lending his expertise of the beautiful game to the development team to create a new virtual reality (VR) football title.
Players in Turbo Soccer VR can done a HTC Vive headset and e transported to a football stadium. A variety of game modes means that players can score goals, pass the ball to teammates or take on the role of goalkeeper.
“My first interaction with Turbo Soccer VR was very impressive,” says Kamil Grosicki, “I put on the headset and suddenly I was at a stadium. Once I got used to what was surrounding me, I scored a couple of nice goals.”
The title uses HTC Vive trackers attached to the user’s feet to allow them to kick or pass the ball accurately. Users can shoot free kicks or penalties using just their feet, thanks to the wireless HTC Vive trackers.
Players can pick their preferred position on the pitch, as a midfielder helping out other teammates, a promising striker launching goals from the penalty area or a goalie saving your team those crucial points. There are options to recreate famous moments from matches in history, or you can engage in tournament mode to take on national teams from around the world with the aim of lifting a trophy.
The development team are also working on a mobile version for iOS and Android, though this will lack the VR elements. A release date for Turbo Soccer VR has yet to be confirmed.
