As the virtual reality (VR) industry grows, an increasing number of small or independent studios are exploring the possibilities created by the new technology. One of those is UK-based development studio DEVCUBESTUDIO, which has just unveiled its first VR title, sci-fi adventure experience Far Home.
Far Home is set in the future of 2300, where pollution and overpopulation has created significant problems on Earth, leaving many human searching for a new place to call home. Players will engage with an immersive first-person shooter adventure, with the development team hoping to introduce strong team-based co-operative elements.
Players will be able to choose from four varied character classes and travel to five different planets, encountering alien inhabitants who can either help or hinder players in their mission. Each planet will feature its own unique environment to explore, with many destructable features to destroy.
“We are extremely proud to announce our game, something that we’ve been working on since 2015. It was a hard decision to start a VR project, but we are now one step away from being able to share the results of our hard work, and we sincerely hope the gaming world takes an interest in our project.” said Aleksander Shevchenko, DEVCUBESTUDIO CEO.
Far Home is expected to come to Steam Early Access some time in January 2018, for the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift, with an anticipated full release launching before the end of 2018, though a price point has not yet been confirmed. The development team are currently working on creating tools with the aim of further expanding the videogame during the Early Access period.
