Get Detached Into This Space Virtual Reality Game
This VR exclusive videogame is a first-person Player-vs-Player that focuses on exploration, survival, and rivalry in space. The game was especially designed for VR headsets, and it recently launched its Early Access on Steam.
Deteached: PvP Virtual Reality Experience
Detached also has a single player mode to test your skills as a flying astronaut. This new VR title is different among the space videogames. You have total freedom to move and do whatever you like in beautifully designed and intriguing space stations. If you ever wanted to feel what is like to be in a space suite, then you should try Detached.
Virtual Reality Space Simulation Multiplayer
During the Early Access, you will be able to experience a single player map with four space hubs that serve as an introduction to the game. Each one of these hubs will teach you the in-game mechanics, such as flying and other skills. There is also a multiplayer map to play something called “Package Extraction,” which is actually a capture-the-flag game between two astronauts.
You can play the single-player and multiplayer map either with arcade or simulation controls. The main difference is that simulation controls are much more complicated. You will have to maneuver in a real zero gravity vacuum environment, with no air resistance at all. This basically means that you will be bouncing into every wall trying to match Newtonian forces in order to move where you want to. Even standing still is a struggle.
The three skills available right now in this stage of the game are Shield, Boost, and EMP Rockets. You can use them both in single player and multiplayer, but what’s the fun of shooting something in space that is not human?
Survive, Explore, and Solve Puzzles in Space
Detached is about surviving in space, but also about exploration and skill-based puzzles. You can explore several different environments looking for supplies in order to survive, such as oxygen or fuel. Among the different environments available to explore are a derelict cruiser ship and a science space station. The visuals are absolutely astonishing in virtual reality, and the music composed by Mikołaj Stroiński (The Witcher 3, The Vanishing of Ethan Carter) is magnificent.
Detached will officially be released next year, but you can play it in its Early Access version right now. The early access is available for download from Steam paying only $19.99. But you must know that this version can only be played with VR headsets such as the Oculus Rift and the HTC Vive. If you want to play it on your desktop you must wait for the game to launch in 2017.
