Cloudhead Video games, the studio behind The Gallery and Aperture Hand Labs, has revealed Pistol Whip. In what seems to be a big (and fairly intriguing) departure from their earlier works, Pistol Whip is described as “half first-person shooter, half rhythm recreation […,] an action-hero sensory journey.”
Whereas Pistol Whip isn’t the primary try at a VR rhythm shooter, although in comparison with Audica, it seems to be to have a better give attention to motion. In Pistol Whip, gamers are transferring ahead by way of their setting, taking pictures enemies and dodging bullets to the beat.
From the video reveal above, it isn’t clear precisely how the rhythm mechanics will combine into the gameplay, although the studio writes that you may “sync your actions to music to energise the world with color, sound, and lightweight,” so it sounds prefer it’ll be about making your motion match the groove.
Cloudhead Video games says Pistol Whip is “coming quickly” (which we anticipate means 2019) to “main VR platforms” (which we anticipate means Rift, SteamVR, and PSVR, although Quest is the massive query mark). We’ve reached out to Cloudhead Video games for extra element on the sport’s launch date.
