Today, Archiact is launching their highly-anticipated first-person shooter title, Evasion. The multi-platform sci-fi shooter is now available across North America, Europe and Asia for PlayStation®VR, HTC Vive™ and Oculus Rift at a suggested retail price of $39.99.
“Evasion was designed by a passionate team that wanted to create a memorable, AAA quality VR shooter,” said Jennifer Dowding, Evasion’s Senior Producer. “Evasion is an intense, action-packed experience, crafted over two years with core gamers in mind, delivering the kind of game we wanted to play in VR.”
Powered by Unreal Engine 4 and featuring stunning sci-fi visuals, Evasion has been designed from the ground up to give players smooth locomotion while still delivering fierce “bullet hell” action. Evasion has both solo and co-op experiences, and features a story campaign where players have to save an embattled mining colony from a surprise attack by the lethal Optera, as well as a survival mode designed to challenge even the most hardened FPS veteran.
Players take on the role of the Vanguard, an elite special ops team that has four playable classes: the devastating Striker, indispensable Surgeon, versatile Engineer and unstoppable Warden. Each class has its own unique full-bodied avatar, weapons, unique tether abilities and devastating Surge Attacks. The PlayStation®VR version has support for the AIM Controller, which makes the gunplay even more satisfying and immersive.
“I’m very proud of the Archiact team for creating a landmark VR shooter that players will really love,” said Kurt Busch, studio head of Archiact. “Our incredible hardware and technology partners have been instrumental in making our vision a reality and we’re thrilled to finally share Evasion with the world.”
Evasion is rated T for Teen by the ESRB.
