Today’s Immersive VR Buzz: 15 Minutes of ‘Pistol Whip’ Dual-wielding Gun Kata Gameplay

This was a very interesting BUZZ that I found today and wanted to share with you.

Pistol Whip, the upcoming VR rhythm shooter from Cloudhead Games, is set to launch on November 7th. We’ve got a fresh batch of gameplay, this time showing off the game’s dual-wielding mode which amps up the game’s ‘gun kata’ feel.

As we talked about in our preview of Pistol Whip earlier this week, the game goes beyond merely shooting targets to the beat, it also forces you to dodge incoming fire.

By default, the game gives you a single pistol, but if you explore the modifier section you’ll also find a dual-wield mode. If the default single pistol mode makes you feel like an agent from The Matrix.

Two pistols give you more firepower but also requires that you divide your attention to independently engage targets with each gun while maintaining an overarching flow between shooting and dodging in order to stay on beat.

Master this and you’ll be rewarded with an amplified sense of ‘gun kata‘ not found anywhere else in VR.

If it isn’t quite clear from the video above, at many points in this gameplay I’m practically down on my knees as I bob and weave to land shots while dodging incoming fire (and I’ll be feeling it in the morning).

Especially on the hardest difficulty, Pistol Whip makes you move a unique and fun way. 

Check back for our full review of Pistol Whip when it launches on PC VR headsets and Oculus Quest on November 7th.

What is 360 VR Video?

360 video is a video that is recorded in all directions at the same time with multiple cameras. The videos are stitched together either internally in the camera or externally using special software.

It then forms one spherical video that is controlled by the viewer, enabling them to look up, down, right or left at their discretion.

Is 360 Video Virtual Reality?

I want you to be the judge.
