2018 looks quite promising for VR fans, with the technology getting better and better and developers growing more accustomed and confident with the hardware in hand. Developer Fast Travel Games revealed their futuristic puzzle adventure title, Apex Construct.
Along the way, players will have to overcome puzzles and “merciless robots” to unravel the mystery behind what happened to “the world you once knew – and what your role is in the drawn out conflict between two powerful AIs.”
The game is set in a strange future where merciless robots prowl the world as a result of mankind’s reckless experiments. As the last human alive, you will need to explore this world to uncover its secrets while defending yourself from the synthetic creatures, utilizing an upgradable bow, arrow & shield setup. Progressing through the adventure, you will gradually reveal what actually happened to the world you once knew – and what your role is in the drawn out conflict between two powerful AIs.
In addition to completing the main campaign, which should last around five hours and take you to places like pre-apocalyptic research stations, underground caves and parts of an old city, Apex Construct is filled with hidden areas to explore – and the more you explore, the more you understand about the world and the story. We call it ‘Exploration Driven Narrative’ and believe it really rewards players who take their time with the game.
Apex Construct releases on February 20 for PSVR. Here is the game’s gameplay trailer:
