Apex Construct on Oculus Quest played on a football field

Developer partnered with VR content creator to record gameplay video on a 6050m2 area, using only body movement through a whole mission

 

Stockholm, Sweden – May 20, 2019 – Fast Travel Games has partnered up with YouTube content creator Jugon Virtual to create a video showing a whole mission in the studio’s award-winning action/adventure Apex Construct played by the use of body motion exclusively as a way to move around in the game. Taking place on a massive football field, Jugon Virtual covered a total area of 6050m2 when playing, recorded by a drone camera + 5 additional cameras to deliver an Oculus Quest gameplay video of unprecedented scope.

We have implemented what we call ‘Physically Based Movement’, or ‘PBM’, in the development version of Apex Construct as a test to enable this kind of gameplay“, CTO Kristoffer Benjaminsson explains. “If there is interest, we will be looking to add this feature in the main game as wellWhen playing at home, as most players of course will, you could mix PBM with regular movement using the thumbsticks, for example.


The Oculus Quest version of Apex Construct releases along with the headset on May 21, and comes with all content and improvements added to the existing version of the game, including competitive game mode ‘Cygnia Cup Challenge’. Apex Construct on Oculus Quest also supports cross-buy with the Oculus Rift version, allowing players who already own Apex Construct on Oculus Rift to play it on Oculus Quest without paying for it again. The price of the Oculus Quest version is set to $19.99/€19.99/£14.99 and can be purchased here
