Gear VR New Release: Gunjack 2: End of Shift

Despite reports of CCP Games pulling out of VR support in the near future a while ago, they have actually went ahead and released Gunjack 2: End of Shift today on the Samsung Gear VR.

If you needs some update, Gunjack 2: End of Shift, sequel to the first Gunjack title, was released exclusively for Google Daydream. If there is any exclusivity clause, it must have expired now that it has been released on Samsung Gear VR as well.

Just like its predecessor, Gunjack 2: End of Shift features the same gameplay style: player controls a turret onboard a space shuttle, and gun down the wave of enemies. Sometimes, there are majestic, huge opposing space crafts with their own turrets. There are various upgrades and bonuses too which the players can procure to unlock better weapons and more, so that the players can take on increasingly harder hostiles.

The largest improvement comes in the way you aim though: unlike the early mobile VR title and even its predecessor where you have to aim by gazing at the target with the headset, this sequel uses the headset’s 3DoF motion controller, on both Google Daydream and now Samsung Gear VR.

Gunjack 2: End of Shift cost $8.99 on the Oculus Store, which you might notice is cheaper than the Google Daydream version. But it is no longer the case, as the Google Daydream has been price dropped to the same price as the Gear VR version now. In addition, the original Gunjack has been price dropped permanently from $9.99 to $4.99 across all its released platforms, for Gear VR and Oculus Rift on the Oculus Store, for HTC Vive and Oculus Rift on Steam, and for PlayStation VR on the PlayStation Store. CCP is also launching a bundle edition with both the original Gunjack game and Gunjack 2: End of Shift on Gear VR, at a discounted price point.

While CCP Games scale back its VR effort, hopefully this title will make it in time for a port to the higher tier VR like HTC Vive or Oculus Rift.

Immerse yourself in the thrilling, cinematic VR world of Gunjack 2: End of Shift from CCP Games. This sequel to the critically acclaimed and best-selling VR shooter set in the EVE universe, Gunjack, comes to the Samsung Gear VR, transporting you to the dangerous Outer Ring of New Eden.

Everyone fights in New Eden. Some fight for power. Others for money. But out there, on the fringes of space, most fight simply to see another day. Far from the comforts of civilization, the vast mining rig, Kubera, is your home. As a turret operator charged with destroying waves of attackers, you stand united with your crew mates in the defence of the rig.
