Vertigo Games and Little Chicken’s Traffic Jams is getting a manic multiplayer mode.
This new mode made its debut at the Upload VR Showcase: Summer Edition today in a trailer starring friends of the show, Cas and Charr. In single-player, Traffic Jams has players managing the flow of traffic. However, in the multiplayer mode, others join in on their phones and make life a little more difficult for you. Other players can direct traffic and call in events like a meteor strike.
Check it out in the footage below. It looks like things get a little heated to say the least.
Hopefully this mode proves to be as fun as other local multiplayer VR games like Acron and Keep Talking And Nobody Explodes. One common complaint with VR is that it isolates players from other people in the room, but experiences like this can also help players find new ways to connect.
On top of the multiplayer mode, Traffic Jams is also getting a demo as part of the Steam Summer Games Festival this week. It’ll give you access to some of the game’s single-player mode. We’ll have some of our own impressions of the experience a little later on too.
Traffic Jams is launching in September on pretty much every headset under the sun; Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, Valve Index, PSVR and Oculus Quest. We also debuted a new VR arcade game from Vertigo during the Showcase. Will you be checking the game out? Let us know in the comments below!
