Telefrag VR – New action-based VR shooter launched in Open Beta
The VR Shooter Telefrag VR puts the players in futuristic arenas to compete against each other in rapid PvP duels with different firearms. The VR title is set in an alternative sci-fi setting in which the Roman Empire never went down and was therefore able to conquer the entire world. Thus, even in the future still modern gladiatorial fighting for the amusement of the people instead, but instead of sword and shield, the fighters with laser weapons and modern technology in the ring.
Inspired by titles like Quake and Unreal Tournament, players expect racy and action-packed fire fights. So it’s important to keep moving and shoot accurately, to be victorious in the end. Life and armor items are also distributed on the various cards to replenish or increase your defense.
For the offensive you have a variety of options to choose from. The eponymous phone allows you to turn your teleportation travel option into a weapon. So you not only jump through time and space to avoid shots, but also to pulverize your opponents by targeted jumps. But also classic firearms with neat punch are used. In the current beta, three weapons are available: a rocket launcher and a flak and plasma cannon. Depending on your preference, these can be adapted differently to your style of play.
For locomotion you can also see the teleportation permanently through the environment and thus attack from all sides. After all, gravity will no longer be an issue in the future. The battles take place in the old gladiator style in classic one-on-one duels in a Bo5. More game elements and modes, features, weapons and more will follow in the future.
Telefrag VR is available for free in the Open Beta for Oculus Rift, HTC Vive and Windows VR glasses on Steam.
