Ubisoft’s Space Junkies combines VR with jetpack-fuelled shooting


Only on PC.

Ubisoft has announced Space Junkies, “a jetpack-fuelled arcade shooter developed exclusively for virtual reality gaming.”

The multiplayer will feature “full VR embodiment and navigation to immerse players in intense micro-gravity battles,” according to the publisher.

The shooter will offer 1v1 or 2v2 duels inside the Dirty Bowl, “a collection of space Arenas that dynamically respond to players’ actions and allow them to navigate and attack from any direction,” Ubisoft detailed. “The game features an arsenal of outlandish, customizable, joinable and – thanks to the Oculus Touch and Vive controllers – grab-able weapons that let players alter their assault tactics in order to best take down their opponents.”

Space Junkies skips PlayStation VR, heading to PC with Oculus Rift and HTC Vive support in spring 2018.
