The best-selling board recreation will get a VR adaptation this Vacation.
With over 22 million copies in 30 languages offered over the previous couple many years, this iconic board recreation is getting a modern-day makeover—in virtual reality. A brand new model of Settlers of Catan is being developed by recreation studio Experiment 7 in collaboration with the creators of the unique creators of Catan.
Dubbed Catan VR, the VR recreation will probably be coming to each the Oculus Rift and Samsung Gear VR this Vacation 2017.
The Catan VR announcement doesn’t reveal a lot with regard to gameplay, only described as “true to the classic, but optimized for virtual reality.” What we are able to anticipate is the VR recreation that includes each single-player and on-line multiplayer modes, the place “players can watch the island come to life in VR for the first time, with beautiful in-game environments and cross-play functionality.”
“The primary time I noticed Catan on the Magic Desk, I used to be fascinated by what VR has to supply,” mentioned Catan creator Klaus Teuber in a press release. “The sport I made in our front room with my household 25 years in the past in Digital Reality? It’s unimaginable. I by no means imagined really entering into the world of Catan once we first began making cut-outs and dreaming about exploring new lands.”
