Today’s Immersive VR Buzz: Claustrophobic Underwater Adventure ‘FREEDIVER: Triton Down’ Coming to PC VR Next Month

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

Archiact, the studio behind VR games Evasion (2018) and Waddle Home (2016), are diving into new territory soon with an upcoming VR experience that promises to give claustrophobics and thalassophobia (people afraid of open bodies of water) a shared reason to never put on a VR headset ever again.

Called FREEDIVER: Triton Down, the underwater adventure is said to make use of ‘gesture-driven’ movement, something Archiact maintains will be an intuitive and immersive swimming and diving mechanic in VR.

The game is said to arrive on Steam and the Oculus Store sometime in May 2019.

Like Subnautica (2018)Freediver makes heavy use of the much beloved (and equally maligned) limited breathing mechanic, something that will no doubt place pressure on players as they try to solve the world’s interactive puzzles. These, Architect says, require players to stay calm, think fast, and use your ever-evolving environment to escape the guts of the ship.

The studio is couching it as a fully-interactive single-player experience, which could mean it’ll be on the shorter end of the spectrum versus a full-length game.

It’s going to be priced at $9 when it’s released in May on Steam and the Oculus Store. The exact release day isn’t certain yet, but we’ll update as soon as we know more.

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.
