Augmented Empire is a cyberpunk tactical role-playing game for Samsung Gear VR. Played from an isometric, top down perspective, players navigate a team of 6 characters in X-COM-like strategic encounters. The game’s neo-noir setting not only feels wholly suitable for a VR game but it also functions brilliantly in a gameplay sense, too. Twinfinite played the game at EGX Rezzed and we were very impressed with how well VR felt applied in a strategy setting.
Coatsink CEO Tom Beardsmore told us “With a strong focus on deep but accessible gameplay, we wanted to give Gear VR Gamers an extraordinary experience. We’re thrilled with the caliber of talent involved in Augmented Empire”.
Augmented Empire is due to launch this summer for Samsung Gear VR. There has been no word on other platforms as of yet.
