While there are some genres of videogames that don’t translate particularly well into virtual reality (VR), flying titles that put players into a cockpit of a fighter jet or spaceship definitely do. Sci-fi videogames like EVE: Valkyrie and Elite Dangerous, or flight simulator FlyInside go to show just how well the format works. Today indie developer Ben Librojo has launched a Steam Greenlight campaign for another flying title, Flying Aces VR set in World War 1.
This isn’t the first time VRFocus has reported on Flying Aces VR. The title came to our attention last year when Librojo launched an alpha demo for the second Oculus Rift developer kit (DK2). This new version will support the consumer head-mounted display (HMD) is it gets enough votes.
Flying Aces VR is a mixture of flight simulator and combat game set during World War 1, designed specifically for virtual reality (VR). Players will be able to experience the birth of aerial combat during the Great War (1914-1918), flying missions over war torn Europe. You’ll develop your skills as a true flying ace, taking on aerial and ground targets.
VRFocus will bring you further updates on Flying Aces VR as its Steam Greenlight campaign continues.
