Winter Fury: Longest Road, the VR tank action and first-person shooter from former Activision and THQ veteran developers atSpidermonk Entertainment and publisher 10th Reality, unloads magazines of ammo at Nazis on Steam Early Access on Vive and Oculus Rift May 30.
A Blitzkrieg, a horrifying parade of destructive machinery, approaches the Allied front. However, there is hope. The Allies’ sole chance at surviving the devastating onslaught is a soldier with a classified, experimental M-4 Sherman tank. Therefore you can turn the tide of war with a combination of steel resolve and good ol’ American ingenuity.
The M-4 can take a pounding, but packs a wallop. First of all, you can bust bunkers with cannon shells or take out foot soldiers with a .50 caliber machine gun to take back the battlefield. Additionally, you can wield motion controllers either seated or standing and pilot the tank from a third-person perspective, or go on foot for first-person gun battles.
Hop out of the tank and fight for freedom with rifles, machine guns and handguns. Scope in with the sniper rifle and the UI shifts so the whole headset shows the sights, making for an intuitive aiming experience unlike any other. Likewise, mountable heavy machine guns, grenades and more unlockable weapons prove invaluable when fighting paratroopers to well-armed bosses.
Winter Fury: Longest Road Delivers
Finally, battle for survival against intimidating bosses like Tiger tanks, Steam Trains, and Messerschmitt Bf 109 fighter aircraft. From close-quarter combat in concrete bunkers to sinking a destroyer with cannon fire, each mission offers awe-inspiring set pieces. Consequently this may be one of the best tank games yet.
“Winter Fury combines unparalleled VR tank-fighting action with advanced foot soldier warfare,” said Scott March, founder of Spidermonk Entertainment. “We wanted to bring an authentic World War 2 action game and virtual reality is the perfect platform.”
Winter Fury: Longest Road will be available in English on Steam Early Access for $19.99 May 30. Making the game even more enticing is the fact that it will be compatible with HTC Vive and Oculus Rift.
