Multiplayer VR shooter Warzone VR arrived on PSVR this week… without multiplayer.
We covered the PC VR launch of this modernized first-person shooter (FPS) earlier in the year. It’s developed by Sinn Studio, the same team that brought you The Perfect Sniper. The Steam listing for the game describes it as a “cross-platform multiplayer virtual reality shooter.”
However, since arriving on PSVR, players discovered that the multiplayer portion of the game is missing in action. Instead, players can tackle the same maps and modes from the PC VR version, just in solo play. The PlayStation Store listing reads: “It is built to play like a competitive multiplayer shooter but instead, with AI.”
In a Reddit thread on r/PSVR, the developer spoke up to say it accepts people’s criticism of the game. “It would be easy to brush this off by pointing out that it was a solo development project, but that is, for the most part, irrelevant to the consumer buying and playing a game for what it is, and not for who made it,” a post from the developer’s account reads. “I do wish there was more time and more resources to put into what was an ambitious concept.”
We reached out to the developer ourselves to ask why multiplayer support was omitted from the game, and if there are any plans to add it back in. By the time of publication we hadn’t heard back.
Warzone does support Sony’s rifle-shaped Aim Controller, as well as the DualShock 4. However, the game currently holds a ‘Mixed’ user review rating on Steam, with users reporting empty servers and glitches.
