Update, August 16: Killing Floor: Incursion is out now for the Oculus Rift, along with a spooky launch trailer.
Killing Floor: Incursion injects some VR into the world of blood, gore, and Zeds today. Expect co-op shenanigans as well as a single-player campaign.
For more VR, here’s a list of the best VR games you can play now.
“When I first put on Rift and got my hands on the Touch controllers, I was amazed at what they meant for VR,” Tripwire’s Leland Scali says. “We could be somewhere we’ve always wanted to go – inside the world we had been crafting for years. As a developer who’s been working 10+ years on games, I personally wanted a new challenge and to be a part of this platform that was changing everything. We wanted to push ourselves as developers to solve a new set of problems, get in on the ground floor, and help define what VR could be.”
You can grab Killing Floor: Incursion on the Oculus Store.
Original story: After a delay, and just over a year after the game was announced at E3 in 2016, the VR spinoff to Killing Floor is coming out in just under two weeks. It’ll arrive on August 16th to be exact.
Complete with a full storyline – a first for Killing Floor – it’s going to tell the story of a Horzine employee who has to wipe out some of the zombies the company has made that are probably going to bring about the end of the world. The usual.
This comes from a Developer Spotlight posted by the developers Tripwire Interactive, which you can watch above. Tom’s Hardware were the ones to notice this, as it did somewhat fly under the radar given the somewhat innocent title of “Developer Spotlight.”
The video’s worth a watch just for the somewhat casual style where they explain Tripwire Interactive’s history. It’s a nice story, really – real heartwarming stuff.
You can see a whole lot of the gameplay, which looks mostly similar to the regular Killing Floor games albeit with that added terror given it’s in VR. It can be played as either a single-player or co-op game, but does require an Oculus Touch, for all the motion tracking and aiming the game requires.
It’s currently 10% off its full price of $39.99 as a pre-order on the Oculus store, you can check that out here.
