PlayStation VR owners today can enjoy another addition to the ever-growing game of virtual reality demos that are available on the PlayStation VR platform with the arrival of the new StarBlood Arena Demo.
Matt Spencer from developers WhiteMoon Dreams has taken to the official PlayStation blog to reveal more details about what you can expect from the game, together with a few tips to help you get started and stay alive a little longer.
It’s a big day for our studio and our amazing partners Sony’s San Diego Studio. The StarBlood Arena demo launches tomorrow, for free at PlayStation Store! I thought I’d use this post to shed some light on the demo’s offerings, fun things to look out for and also throw in some pro tips for the arena. Drumroll please… The tutorial will help get you off the ground, but I’ve also got some major keys to drop that will have you owning the arena in no time:
– Use your head! One of the unique elements of gaming in VR is the ability to not only use your controller, but your PS VR headset as well to aim. StarBlood Arena makes use of this head tracking technology, so wherever you choose to look – you can shoot!
– Lock on: The pilots of StarBlood Arena come equipped with many lock-on weapons that will seek out enemies and destroy them. Just make sure your reticle stays focused on your enemy long enough for a lock-on ring to appear around them, then fire away for devastating results!
– ABDM – Always Be Dropping Mines: Don’t forget to make use of your mines. The more you drop, the more havoc you will wreak! Mines stay active until they’re blown up – so drop them often for maximum carnage. Warning: this will make the arena extremely dangerous.
– Use your boost: Use your boosters to quickly get in and out of confrontations. Boost time is limited, but it recharges automatically – so time your escapes and attacks with that in mind.
