I’ve played and heard of plenty of different Western shooters in the past (like “Outlaws“, “Call of Juarez”, “Gun.Smoke” and “Red Dead Redemption”, for example). However, I can’t remember the last time that I’ve seen (or heard) of a Wild West VR shooter. Well, that just happens to be the case with Octobox Interactive’s Western VR shooter “High Noon VR“, and this is what Buka Entertainment had to tell us about the game:
“Russian publisher Buka Entertainment announced a brand new VR game, High Noon VR! The game will launch on Steam on 14th November 2017 and it will be fully compatible with both HTC Vive and Oculus Rift virtual reality headsets.
High Noon VR – the exciting and funny VR shooter developed by Russia based Octobox Interactive. Player assumes the role of a new sheriff of the small town isolated somewhere in the Wild West. Things are not doing that well there because of the hordes of bloodthirsty outlaws all over the neighborhood. Now it’s time to show them who’s the Law here now. Put on your favorite spurred boots, lock and load your faithful Colt – this town awaits its savior!” – Buka
As for game features, these are the said launch features for “High Noon VR”:
– Wild West setting. Immerse yourself into the true Western — the scorching sun, prairies and saloons. Fight and win on the colorful locations of the Wild West!
– Huge arsenal of weapons. From regular revolvers, rifles and dynamite to unconventional harpoons. Choose and upgrade your weapons right – your life depends on it!
– The higher your skill, the better the reward. The game encourages you to play “in style” – achieve goals by a killing sprees, multiple headshots and double your reward!
– Justice is in your hands. Enemies get tougher and bosses get deadlier with each new level and location — upgrade your arsenal and mow them down. Every single one of them has different look and behavior, but they all have a common goal – to get rid of the new sheriff. Join the fight, upgrade your weapons, and compete with your friends. Dynamic battles against dozens of enemies, a vigorous soundtrack and vivid, stylish visuals in the classic Western atmosphere awaits you. You are the Law now!
In other words, we should be able to play “High Noon” on our HTC Vive and Oculus Rift virtual reality headsets on the 14th of November for PC “if” everything goes according to plan. So, let’s hope for the best 😉 As for here and now though, I have added the latest trailer for “High Noon” down below!
