Brass Tactics – VR Classic Real-Time Strategy
Hidden Path Entertainment, the same studio behind Defense Grid 2 VR and Age of Empires II, is developing a Real-Time Strategy video game in Virtual Reality.
Brass Tactics Brings Strategy to Virtual Reality
Brass Tactics takes RTS games to a higher level by immersing you into a dangerously amazing Virtual Reality battlefield. You will experience the excitement of giving orders and interacting with your own creations: you will be able to grab any piece of your army and place it wherever you find convenient on the battlefield and instruct your soldiers by sweeping your hand. You can try to master the game playing against the AI or make it more challenging by teaming up with your friends in cooperative or PVP mode.
“Virtual Reality gives us the opportunity to tear down the complicated interfaces, menus, and UI screens often associated with RTS and build an exceptional interface anew. An interface that is intuitive, physical, and gives you complete command over your forces in battle. As you command your forces on the war table, you build new units, direct them to attack, flank, or circumvent the enemy, build new structures, upgrade your forces along a tech tree of interesting options, and even fire off catapults of fire that rain down upon your opponent and their forces.”
Brass Tactics will for now be an Oculus Rift exclusive and you will need the Touch Controllers to play it. The game it’s expected to be released in October of 2017 and price and availability for other platforms is still unknown.
