Game Developers NODE, currently is the process of developing the upcoming virtual reality game Hover Junkers, have this week released a demonstration video that provides a look at the HTC Vive virtual reality headset playing the DOTA 2 Secret Shop and ‘Aperture Science’ Robot Repair VR demonstrations.
In the video below you can see seven minutes of gameplay demonstrating how the HTC Vive and it supplied controllers can be used in a virtual reality environment to provide an immersive gaming experience.
As previously reported Valve is hoping to make its HTC Vive virtual reality headset available in limited quantities before the end of the year with the official launch in larger numbers taking place in the first quarter of 2016 to compete with the likes of the Oculus Rift and Sony PlayStation VR. The Road to VR website explains a little more :
The Aperture Robot Repair demo gameplay is the most detailed yet and emphasises why virtual reality from Valve is potentially so exciting. An excellent demonstration of SteamVR’s room-scale tracking, the experience cleverly restricts your movements around the space with a carefully sized virtual environment and interesting mental barriers to keep you stepping beyond the polygonal boundaries. The demo is exquisitely detailed, with painstaking attention to animation and incidental production design, not to mention typically sartorial humour running throughout. Check it out for yourself below.
