Bow and shield experiences make regular appearances in the VR game ecosystem and Apex Construct is one of the more notable releases this year, featuring a dystopian setting where merciless robots prowl the world. The game was initially built for PlayStation VR and brought over to PC at a later date, but the spotlight is back on its roots with a PSVR retail release coming July 31, 2018.
This is what you have to look forward to if you're grabbing Apex Construct for the first time:
- A Flexible Combat System – With
fluiduse of a bow and shield, players take aim at enemies with an unparalleled precision. Players have the option to choose between seamless teleportation or direct movement
- Deep Customization and Updates – Players can spend acquired resources to upgrade weapons and equipment while customizing their home base and displaying hard-earned achievements
- Replayable Missions – From their personalized home base, players can select and replay any mission to uncover secret locations and mysteries contained within each area
“Questioning the potentially dangerous impact of sentient technology is a topic that we can address in our media in a lot of interesting ways. Apex Construct takes a unique approach,” says Mickey Torode, director of publishing at Perp Games, in the press release. “The bow and arrow combat really enhance the feeling of a return to the rudimentary human existence, echoing back to early hunting techniques that adds a rawness and urgency to the fights.”
Apex Construct's physical edition for PlayStation VR costs $29.99 and can be found at popular retailers.
