Here’s a sneaky surprise straight out of the Upload VR Showcase: Summer Edition – Panther VR hits Early Access today.
Developer Wolfdog Interactive announced the news with a new trailer. Panther VR was successfully crowd-funded last year and promised for a spring/summer 2020 Early Access release. In the game, you play as a member of a guild of master thieves that steals from elite corporations. Check out the trailer below.
As you can see, Panther VR promises a stealth sandbox inspired by games like Metal Gear Solid and Splinter Cell. You can stick to the shadows, hiding bodies from view, but you’ll also have an expansive aresnal of tools and weapons like remote mines and high-powered rifles. How you get the job done is up to you. Don’t miss the ending for another excellent easter egg, too. This isn’t the only Solid surprise in the Showcase, either.
In Early Access, Panther VR offers a few maps to take out heists in, plus a hub world to hang out in. Over the course of Early Access, Wolfdog plans to add new levels, weapons and mechanics to the experience. The full version of the game is aiming for release sometime in 2021.
Panther VR is available on PC VR headsets via SteamVR. No word yet on possible ports to Oculus Quest and PSVR, though we’d imagine it will be some time before there’s any news to share there. We’ve got plenty more news to share during the Upload VR Showcase: Summer Edition, so stay tuned!
