Space Rift: VR Space Adventure Released for PC

Unique VR Gaming Experience is now available on Steam and via Humble Store for all established VR Headsets for PC

Tuesday, August 02nd, 2016 - Today, the action-packed and story-driven VR game Space Rift was released for all established VR headsets for PC. The Mixed-Reality-Announcement-Trailer and the recently published Gameplay-Trailer shows which adventures and challenges await soon-to-be VR pilots. One more reason to immerse in the spectacular Space Rift universe right away: Concomitant with the launch, you get 10% discount.

Space Rift: A complete VR experience
Space Rift is specifically designed and optimized for VR headsets such as Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, PlayStation VR and Gear VR. The cinematic story paired with the gameplay and level design is what makes Space Rift unique in this regard. Space Rift thrills players with a movie-like atmosphere, which reveals itself in the scripted missions and dozens of dialogues with detailed characters. Unlike other VR mini games and tech demos, which have been released for VR so far, Space Rift is a complete game experience.

About Space Rift: The player will become part of the story
Earth has been devastated entirely by a destructive meteor shower, thus forcing humanity to emigrate to Mars. Humans were enslaved by the organizations WEYSS and PANDORA and carve out a miserable existence on the xeric red planet. Players slip into the role of the veteran pilot Casey, who takes on the hostile organizations in order to liberate humankind from their suffering on Mars. Radio transmissions, newscasts and the interaction with the fondly designed non-player characters on the base station continuously add new thrilling details about the on-going conflict and also reveal pieces of background information.

Real cockpit feeling in outer space
The combination with Virtual Reality leads Space Rift to provide a unique and immersive gaming experience. This motivates the player to advance the story autonomously and to put together newly revealed pieces in the puzzle. Concurrently, the space ship evolves into being the player's favorite companion - not only in connection with the quest to free humankind, but also in the course of exploring the whole galaxy. The particular segments of the playable outer space were designed individually by the level designers and therefore offer a vast amount of variety - also thanks to impressive visual effects.

Space Rift will be available for PC and all major VR headsets at a price of USD/ EUR 17.99 (GBP 13.49): namely via Steam and the Humble Store. After the discount campaign the price will be USD/EUR 19.99 (GBP 14.99). The Android GEAR-VR version of Space Rift will also be released in Summer 2016 and the PlayStation VR version is planned for Fall 2016.

Further impressions can be taken out of the official Gameplay- and Mixed Reality-Trailer. A 9-part making-of documentary is also available and will be released weekly.
