The title, developed by Gunfire Games, recently received an age rating for PS4, Xbox One, PC and Nintendo Switch by ESRB. The question immediately arises for Gunfire: is everything right on this list? Can the PS4 version of the game support PSVR?
Perhaps Oculus still has some kind of exclusive deal related to VR support, but this does not guarantee the exclusivity of the project. There is also an assumption that the mention of a PC means that the game is also suitable for the usual gameplay. Perhaps support for the HTC Vive and Valve Index will also follow other platforms?
However, if this happens, then this will not be surprising. Gunfire was acquired by THQ Nordic last month, and it seems THQ is using its existing assets. Chronos was a third-person RPG, a bit like the Zelda game that was released with Rift in 2016. Management was carried out using the standard Xbox One controller, so there is no reason why she could not work in VR.
It is noteworthy that Gunfire has just released Remnant: From the Ashes, the most common shooter that takes place in the same world as Chronos. It is possible that fans of the game will want to play another game in this virtual world.
This is not the first time we have seen one of the Rift exclusives go on other consoles. Last year, Playful brought the highly acclaimed VR platformer, Lucky’s Tale to the Xbox. Switch release is also expected soon. If these games can find their way from Rift to other platforms, then perhaps titles such as Insomniac’s Edge of Nowhere will also appear on other virtual reality devices in due time.
