For those that prefer their shooter action in single-player rather than online, Mean Mutt Interactive’s The Last Operator arrives in full today.
The game, which first arrived via Steam Early Access in March, is adding two new missions in its launch update. The first is a city environment that will feature shootouts on the streets, whilst a laboratory setting has you ducking between boxes and desks. This brings the game’s solo campaign to a total of 10 missions. These are objective-based levels with randomized locations designed to get you to tackle them multiple times.
As with multiplayer games like Onward and Pavlov, The Last Operator labels itself as a tactical first-person shooter (FPS). You’ll be able to choose to a range of weapons and sidearms, fit them with attachments and then sneak through levels as you hunt down an evil corporation responsible for releasing a deadly virus. On top of the solo campaign, each mission features a VIP Hunt mode in which you have to take out certain enemies.
“I want to thank the early access players for their feedback which helped me improve many aspects of the game while still keeping within my original vision,” the developer wrote in a Reddit post. “Over the last year and a half of development I went through lots of long nights and weekends, stress and anxiety, to hopefully add a good option to the VR shooter genre, and I hope others follow so we can see (and I can play) many more singleplayer shooters in the months and years to come. I know some I already have on my radar.”
The Last Operator supports the Oculus Rift, HTC Vive and Windows VR headsets. The game costs $14.99 in Early Access though Mean Mutt says that will rise slightly for the full launch later today.
