The fast-paced, old-school inspired VR shooter Telefrag VR has a release window, though an actual release date remains elusive. The game’s developer, Anshar Studios, has announced that Telefrag VR will release simultaneously on PSVR, Oculus Rift and HTC Vive headsets this summer. Why’s that a big deal? Because cross-play will be a big feature right out of the gate, that’s why!
Telefrag VR takes places in a futuristic Roman Empire where gladiators have been replaced by running and gunning warriors. It’s an interesting concept and it’s against the norm, for sure. The developers are proud to be going against the grain with this release and they’re gleefully aware that they’re not following the normal VR rules in having a slower-paced game. Instead of worrying about players puking, Anshar Studios is focused on creating an arena shooter that’ll get the blood pumping. Maybe the puke, too, but your mileage may vary.
Anshar has also released a brand new teaser trailer to celebrate the release window announcement. It’s only a few seconds long but it’s worth a look if you’re interested in an old-school shooter for VR. They are, sadly, few and far between.
