I desparately need a deep, immersive Harry Potter VR sport. The Improbable Beasts experience on Google Daydream is hardly greater than a advertising gimmick and it’s not truly a sport. Titles like inVokeR, The Unspoken, and Wands do a great job of tapping into that need to shoot spells and throw fireballs inside a VR headset, however it nonetheless doesn’t come shut to truly strolling the halls of Hogwarts and combating Loss of life Eaters alongside my fellow Ravenclaws (that’s the best Home.)
We nonetheless aren’t there but, however the beforehand cell VR-only magic dueling sport, Wands from Cortopia (learn our original review,) is now getting the Oculus Rift port therapy to supply loads of enhancements over its Gear VR and Google Daydream counterpart. You possibly can see the Rift teaser proper right here:
In Wands you tackle the function of a wizard that may connect runes to your wand to designate totally different spells and talents. Throughout fights you’ll choose out of your arsenal of spells and teleport all through ranges as you face off in opposition to different magic-wielders in intense fights.
Nonetheless, one of many sport’s evident points on cell VR headsets, is that you may’t positionally transfer your head to dodge assaults. Meaning if somebody shoots a magic missile at my face, I can’t duck or transfer to the facet, which might be my pure inclination. Now as soon as the sport is on Oculus Rift, gamers can just do that.
Moreover, all your characters, upgrades, and development shall be saved on the identical account throughout platforms so that you don’t need to juggle a number of save recordsdata and the Rift model will even get pleasure from improved visible constancy and graphics.
“The 19th century steampunk world of Wands is taken to a new level of quality and whether new or experienced, the time has never been better to immersive yourself in to the world of wielders and magic,” reads a ready assertion for the announcement from developer Cortopia. “Compete for the top spot in the global ranking, acquire new relics for your spells and join a community of players from all around the globe.”
You possibly can visit the official website for extra data or play the sport now on Samsung Gear VR through Oculus Home or Google Daydream through the Google Play Store. The Oculus Rift version is at present slated to launch earlier than the tip of September.
