Carbon Studio, the maker of ALICE VR for Oculus Rift, HTC Vive and OSVR, has just announced their next title, “The Wizards“.
This title will be releasing on Oculus Rift and HTC Vive in 2017 this year. They have just released the following trailer, which tease what player can expect to see in the game.
The Wizards is a VR-spellcaster set in a fantasy world, where the player defeats their foes with powerful magic.
The protagonist is a young wizard traveling in time to protect the Realm of Men from the destructive enemy forces. During the adventure, the player visits different lands and faces varying opponents in a high fantasy world. Spell casting in The Wizards is based on the energy of the four elements, and the key to the victory is adapting your tactics to the flow of the battle.
The game is exclusive to VR and uses all the best the technology has to offer. Players can weave spells with their hands using motion controllers, which provides a completely immersive experience in the magical world. With the powerful Unreal Engine 4, the creators want to build a rich and beautiful fantasy world full of stunning visuals.
The Wizards introduces Fate Cards – gameplay modifiers that can change game difficulty and reward value to the player’s liking. Fate Cards increase replayability and accessibility, which makes the game satisfying for both challenge seekers and casual connoisseurs. In the Campaign mode, the player gains access to increasingly powerful spells that require cunning and skills to master.
According to the developer, this was conceived during VR Funhouse Game Jam, where they created a prototype of a spell casting game that uses motion controller. The goal is to defend a land from hordes of enemies.
The game will includes the following features:
- First-person VR spellcaster set in the fantasy world
- Story mode featuring time travels and heroic battles
- Intuitive spell casting with motion tracked controllers
- Various elemental spells to learn and upgrade
- High replayability thanks to game-modifying Fate Cards
- Immersive fantasy world built in Unreal Engine 4
