Front Defense from Vive Studios is a newly created World War II shooter that does its best to emulate the feeling of being hunkered down behind cover fighting for your life in the heat of battle. Instead of running around the map while gunning down enemies, you’ll need to actually kneel and crouch down behind cover while using a variety of guns and weapons at your disposal.
In the launch trailer below you can see some of the action on display. Front Defense was first announced over a year ago as HTC’s very own Vive game and since then the internal Vive Studios developer has gone on to release Arcade Saga and Virtual Sports (formerly known as VR Sports). Both of those previous titles have a decidedly whimsical and arcadey feel, while Front Defense appears to be targeted more at the core shooter audience.
