DayZ creator’s VR-exclusive shooter Out of Ammo is now on Steam Early Access

Out of Ammo VR

Dean Hall, the man responsible for kick-starting the survival phenomenon with DayZ, has made his VR debut with HTC Vive-exclusive Out of Ammo. A strategy/shooter hybrid, it’s available on Steam Early Access now. 

Just getting started with virtual reality? These are the best VR games you can buy. 

The game is the first from Hall’s new studio RocketWerkz, and casts players as the commander of a battlefield. As a floating strategy master, you’ll be able to issue orders to troops, build defenses, and call in airstrikes. But as well as being a strategy game, Out of Ammo is also a shooter. You can possess your troops and control them directly as in an FPS.

"Out of Ammo has been designed exclusively around the HTC Vive," explains the game’s Steam page. "Possessing your units allows you to utilise the full capability and power of the positional tracking; take cover behind sandbags, lean over a tower railing, or duck behind your sandbags and grab a grenade to throw as a last resort! Full physics applied to game objects further enhances your experience allowing you to position your magazines in the space around you ready for when you need to reload." 

With its Minecraft-like blocky graphics, Out of Ammo looks akin to Block N Load, although clearly plays quite differently. Soldiers available to deploy and play as are the Rifleman, Sniper, Rocketeer, Medic and Engineer, and your first battlegrounds are Woodland, Desert, Alpine, and Urban environments. 

The current build is said to be “a bit clunky to use and unintuitive”, but as an Early Access game you can expect updates to gradually beat it into shape.

If you’ve got yourself a HTC Vive, then you’re good to play. Out of Ammo is priced £10.99/$14.99.
