Sparc – Full Body Virtual Sport
CCP Games announced Sparc, an exciting and unique Virtual Reality sports video game where players compete online in fast and fun full-body VR gameplay. The game is currently under development for the PlayStation VR, the HTC Vive and the Oculus Rift headsets. It is expected to release later this year and it would be the first time CCP makes a game not related to EVE.
Virtual Sport – Real Competition – Sparc VR
Sparc becomes a fun and fast-paced physical sports thanks to its skill-based, full-body gameplay. You can use your motion controllers to throw projectiles at your opponents and defend yourself by deflecting, blocking, and dodging incoming attacks. Any player can join online one-on-one matches with friends or find random opponents via matchmaking.
Sparc allows players to connect and compete online. You can watch any matches you want in-person and wait in line for the next VR match through Courtside, a kind of VR social area for people to watch matches in Virtual Reality or on a 2D screen. Sparc features several multiplayer game modes and also some single-player challenges and training courses. Sparc also includes wide personalization and customization options for all competitors.
“At CCP games, our goal is to harness our passion for virtual reality as a new medium and create the killer apps for the first generation of VR technology,” said Hilmar Veigar Pétursson, CEO of CCP Games. “We set out to achieve that in mobile VR with Gunjack and in seated VR with EVE: Valkyrie, both released in the first year of VR becoming publicly available. With Sparc, we want to capitalize on the unique strengths of standing VR and deliver a game with all the depth and excitement to keep players returning long into the future.”
This is only the beginning and CCP Games intends to reveal more information about Sparc very soon before the release of the game later this year. For more information, you can check Sparc’s or CCP’s official websites.
