Tripwire Interactive announced that Killing Floor: Incursion, the virtual reality rendition of their co-op horde mode shooter, is set to make its debut on the PlayStation VR headset starting in early 2018.
According to VRFocus, the new VR mode will be accompanied by a new map and mode specifically tailored to PlayStation gamers called Holdout. We don’t get to see much of the new mode but we do get to see how the game will look and run on Sony’s hardware thanks to a PSX 2017 trailer that you can view below.
Unlike the main mode, it appears players are trapped inside of some sort of simulation where they’ll team up with another player and take on hordes of the zed.
Much like the standard version of the game, you’ll still have a wide variety of weapons at your disposal, including both melee and projectile-based weapons.
This is probably one the rare times where going full melee might actually be more beneficial in Killing Floor.
We also get to see how players can dual-wield two different weapons at the same time. If the hit detection is accurate and the motion detection is proper, it could end up being as cool as Superhot VR. The dismemberment and limb removal is still a prominent feature when facing off against the enemies in Killing Floor, but we don’t get to see much in the way of traversal or how weapon acquisitions work.
The thing is, VR still has a long ways to go before it’s considered a viable way to game. Right now it’s still a novelty, and without a wireless adapter for the PlayStation VR headset, it’s not only a novelty but a cumbersome novelty to use.
Anyway, you can expect the new Killing Floor: Incursion VR release to go live in early 2018 for the PSVR. If you’re not a Sony pony you can pick up the Killing Floor: Incursion app for the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift right now.
