If you are looking for a new virtual reality title that provides something new beyond the current VR offering, you might want to check out the “First Impact: Rise of a Hero”, an open world action RPG VR title that has just hit the Steam store.
You’ll be putting on a cape (figuratively speaking) in First Impact: Rise of a Hero , as you assumes the role of a superhero in this title. This means you will have special powers that your average superhero has in comic books. This game gives you the ability to fly, jump, run and even summon 4 elemental powers to protect the citizens, square off against villains, not to mention investigating the mysterious force that is sending meteors to Earth.
The 4 elemental powers that has been bestow upon you are Earth (skewer enemies with earth spikes), Fire (launch a fireball to burn the target), Ice (ice shards for you to impact your foes) and Wind (summon a tornados to inflict some damage).
As for flying, well, it is all just a push of a button. You will be taking to the sky, where you will be flying between buildings, and avoiding aerial obstacles like birds and planes. If you are more of a ground person, you can run at super speed to run everywhere you want. If flying and running doesn’t suits you, there’s also a super jump that lets you scale buildings, as well as teleportation.
As a superhero, you also possesses super strength, allowing you to lift a variety of objects with ease. Take for example, lifting a car to take on the pesky thug that are after you.
Beyond all that, you will also have to go on a mission of your own too. You were not a super hero all your life, and it is up to you to find out why happened. There will be 3 support characters, General Barclay Whitehill, Dr. Ernest Giorgio and Chieftain Aulani in this game, who will work with you to uncover the truth behind the meteor showers.
This title is developed by Red Meat Games, and support only the HTC Vive at the moment. Oculus Rift support will be coming in the very near future, followed by a PSVR release.
