is Evasion the next big AAA VR shooter?
VR may not be the best medium for all types of games, but First Person Shooters (FPS) games seem to do all right. FPS games seem tailor made to the first person experience that VR can offer, and there have been a couple of very successful ones already. So its no surprise that many companies now want in on the idea. Evasion, from Archiact! is the next game to step up to the plate.
