Ubisoft announced that Space Junkies, their jetpack-fueled arcade shooter virtual reality game, will be available next month, March 26, 2019, on PlayStation VR, Windows Mixed Reality headsets, Oculus Rift + Touch and HTC Vive.
Developed by Ubisoft Montpellier and powered by Brigitte, a new virtual reality engine designedto allow teams to work seamlessly in virtual spaces, Space Junkies offers a fast-paced multiplayer action experience set in three-dimensional space arenas and leverages full VR embodiment to immerse players in intense microgravity battles.
The PlayStationVR version will support the use of DUALSHOCK4 controller and feature a unique navigation system that allows players to fly at speeds through immersive vertical battlespaces. Players will also have full use of the SIXAXIS controls for a unique embodiment in VR.
At launch, Space Junkies will offer 1v1, 2v2 and free-for-all modes, as well as a wealth of different weapon and customization options across six varied interior and exterior battlefields. Each arena features unique tactical zones, dynamic lighting, and breakable environments. No battle will feel the same, and players will need both tactics, and combat skills to avoid death coming fast from all directions. The game will also be receiving new content updates beyond release, including new modes, maps, weapons, and customization items.
Test phases will be held to further optimize the game, including an Open Beta across all platforms. for those who want to try the game, you can register at Here.
“We are beyond excited for the launch of Space Junkies and can’t wait for players to jump into this rocket-injected, gunslinging laser bonanza in outer space! Being able to launch on PlayStationVR is great news for our players and we are looking into supporting additional headsets to bring the Space Junkies experience to more people in the future.” – Adrian Lacey, producer at Ubisoft Montpellier.
