Survios, the studio behind the brilliant Sprint Vector, is taking on virtual reality once again with its latest game, Creed: Rise to Glory.
As the game’s title suggests, this is a boxing game making use of the Creed/Rocky license. From what I’ve gleamed from the post over on the PlayStation Blog, it looks like Creed: Rise to Glory will have a single player campaign mode that follows Adonis Creed as he is trained by legendary boxer, Rocky Balboa.
“A premier VR boxing experience that puts you in the gloves of Adonis Creed on his journey from an underground amateur to a spotlight champion, Creed: Rise to Glory features revolutionary Phantom Melee Technology for impactful melee combat VR. Whether you choose to live out Creed’s story or set up your own Exhibition battles against a variety of skilled opponents, this makes you feel every punch, uppercut, and flurry through situational desynchronization, including fatigue, staggering, and knockouts.”
The PlayStation Blog post mentions that Rocky is really quite an old man in Creed: Rise to Glory, but as a PSVR exclusive bonus there will be a younger version of Rocky to play as. Maybe even against? The announcement wasn’t exactly clear on that point.
I’ve been itching for a decent boxing game on the PSVR for a long while now, but is this the one? Maybe. Survios has a decent track record when it comes to PSVR and I’m hopeful that Creed: Rise to Glory is just as successful as Sprint Vector. Maybe even better.
Please be bloody good. Please.
