VR action/adventure Apex Construct released

Stockholm, Sweden - Mar 20, 2018

Acclaimed single player experience from industry veterans Fast Travel Games out now on PSVR, Oculus Rift, HTC Vive & Windows Mixed Reality

Following the successful release of the debut title Apex Construct for PlayStation VR, VR games developer Fast Travel Games announced today that the immersive action/adventure, built exclusively for VR, is out now for PC players to enjoy through a simultaneous release on Oculus Rift, HTC Vive & Windows Mixed Reality. In Apex Construct, players need to explore a shattered world to uncover its secrets while defending themselves from the synthetic creatures, utilizing an upgradable bow, arrow & shield setup. Progressing through the adventure, players will gradually reveal what actually happened to the world they once knew – and what their role is in the drawn out conflict between two powerful AIs. Apex Construct delivers full immersion through a highly interactive environment, which is both beautiful and perilous, and allows players to explore the surroundings at their own pace by using different movement options like Full Locomotion or Teleportation.

Bringing Apex Construct to PC means we are filling an important void in the PC VR games market today” says Oskar Burman, CEO at Fast Travel Games. “Many players have asked for a “real” VR action/adventure, something different to the many wave shooters out there, and we believe Apex Construct is this game: With a focus on narrative and exploration, along with action-packed gameplay where you utilize an upgradable bow & shield combination, Apex Construct should please anyone who wants an immersive, dynamic VR game that lasts.”

Launching on 3 different platforms at the same time was challenging, but also created interesting opportunities. Creative Director Erik Odeldahl explains:

While we are very satisfied with Apex Construct on PlayStation VR, the hardware improvements in PC VR headsets along with the different peripherals meant we had more options to cater for an optimal gameplay experience”, Odeldahl elaborates. “Making use of, for example, the Roomscale tracking on HTC Vive, the Oculus Touch Controllers and the inside-out tracking on the Windows Mixed Reality headsets really allowed us to push Apex Construct to new heights.”
