Age of Heroes is being developed by Omnigames and MMO fans who own VR kit might want to keep a close eye on this.
The game has been designed with MMO gamers in mind and will feature multiple character classes, character and loot progression, raids with boss fights, responsive fully body avatars in-game, voice chat, and cross-platform play between the PSVR, Vive and Rift.
Omnigames are wanting to make this an immersive experience adding:
“We were thinking about how to make the combat more immersive and thrilling in VR. One of the answers is Actual Body Movements: you are not only playing the game with VR controllers but also using your own body.
“In Age of Heroes, you need actually move your body like squatting or quickly side-stepping to avoid attacks and boss abilities. If you worried about room size or other problems, you can set different game configurations to finish all these movements in a slight body reaction. It will be fun and feel real!”
A beta test will be taking place at some point according to Omnigames and sign-up are “beginning soon”. It sounds fairly interesting and the movement does look quite impressive as you can see in the videos below.
