We’ve had quite a nice break from all the shooty shooty bang bang, haven’t we? Lots of the best VR games of 2019 (so far) have been about things other than pulling the trigger. It’s been pleasant, but Space Ops VR promises to bring us back into the fray.
This new shooter from Devcube Studio and VR publisher Fibrum is launching on PC VR headsets next month. It’s a multiplayer title set in 2301. Earth has begun to mine other planets for resources and formed a team of elite warriors to take on the galaxy’s biggest threats. That means a whole lot of alien-shooting. The brief teaser trailer below doesn’t tell us much but we do have a few GIFs on the game’s Steam listing.
Crucially, Space Ops’ missions can be played either in solo or co-op modes. You’ll even be able to compete for the best scores on leaderboards if that’s your thing. PvP modes will also feature 1v1 duels or 2v2 team battles.
It’s not Devcube’s first VR project; the studio made and published another VR shooter named Farhome last year. That’s still in Early Access and it’s not clear as to if it will ever leave it.
Maybe not the most original VR game, then, but Space Ops does look like it could offer some simple shooting thrills.
Space Ops will launch with support for Oculus Rift, HTC Vive and Windows VR headsets on May 23 2019. There’s no word on a possible PSVR version just yet. We’ll keep you up to date with its progress going forward.
