VR is getting its own Infinity War, but not the one you’re hoping for.
Dragonfly and Reality MagiQ are dropping the cheekily-titled Special Force VR: Infinity War next week on August 8. It doesn’t have any Iron Men or magical hammers, but it does have a bunch of buzz cut soldiers shooting their way through urban environments.
This is a multiplayer game aiming for a slice of the VR esports scene. Pretty standard stuff; run around environments with pistols and rifles, find the enemy and then shoot them before they shoot you. It offers eight-player matches combining death match, team death match and demolition game modes. Check it out in the trailer below.
And that’s about all there is to say right now. Based on the trailer, it’s hard to deny that Special Forces looks solid, but it also looks about as generic as games can get. Hopefully there’s something here to give it more of a spark than we’re seeing right now.
Special Force will release on Steam in Early Access with support for Rift, Index, Vive and Windows VR headsets. The game’s also set to be released on PSVR later this year. No word on a possible Oculus Quest version just yet.
As to whether Special Force could take on the likes of Onward and Pavlov? The jury’s still out on that. We’ll try to bring you an answer over the next week. That is if the game even makes it to market before Disney asks for a change in name.
