Arktika.1 is a highly anticipated VR title that’s currently under development by 4A games. Exclusive to the Oculus Rift, the team has set some high expectations for themselves to deliver an unmatched VR experience. In a recent update, Andrii Krasavin who is the game designer at 4A games provided us with a commentated weapons gameplay video where he goes over some of the arsenal that’ll be at our disposal.
In the commentated video you can see some of the different types of weapons you can wield. Krasavin mentions that there will be a mix of both old school and futuristic weapons to provide a variety of choices for unique experiences. One of the weapons that Krasavin highlights is the Minotaur revolver which is revitalized with modern tools and materials. The game will allow you to add-on laser sights which provides you with better aim down the barrel of the gun.
It also appears that you’ll be able to dual-wield in the game. This is something that many gamers enjoy as you can go wild, shooting in different directions at the same time.
The commentated video also reveals that the game will be teleportation based rather than locomotion movement. But there may be valid reasons behind that such as faster movement and storyline sequences.
For those of you that aren’t familiar with the title, Arktika. 1 takes place nearly a century in the future where in the aftermath of a silent apocalypse the planet enters a new ice age. As a mercenary hired by Citadel Security, you must protect one of the last colonies in the wastelands of old Russia from violent raiders, marauders, and horrifying creatures. Users will have to become saviours in this apocalyptic world where you give humanity a second chance.
4A games has mentioned in the past that Arktika. 1 will be available some time in Q3 of 2017 but there hasn’t been an announcement since then. Make sure to stay tuned for updates.
