Developer Curiscope has announced a new VR underwater exploration and adventure called Operation Apex in which players are on a mission to find the largest great white shark.
Taking on the role of a research assistant, divers will have to explore the depths and discover different sea-dwelling species as they work their way up the food chain to find the great white. They will also discover the impact humans are having on the oceans.
Ben Kidd, Chief Creative Officer and co-founder of Curiscope said, “As we all begin to come to terms with how deep our activity on land is impacting the ocean, we’re offering you awe and wonder along with some uncomfortable truths. We are all really excited to invite you underwater, for an adventure. To explore and discover the wonder of our oceans and its inhabitants ‘first hand’. Unlock the secrets we’ve hidden, witness the light and the darkness of the ocean for yourself, and go away with a deeper sense of connection between the land and the sea.”
With Blue Planet II doing so well on the BBC right now, the timing of this release is perfect. The game releases on 11 December on Steam and Viveport priced £15.49 / $19.99 / €19.99.
