PR: Space Rift: First Trailer for the VR Space Adventure Revealed

The story-driven space adventure Space Rift has already been announced by bitComposer Interactive. Now, the first official trailer (see below) has been released which shows what players can expect to see in Space Rift when it is going to be released in Summer 2016 for PC, Android and PlayStation VR.

Thanks to the mixed-reality announcement trailer, players can really feel the specific intensity offered by the large-scale Virtual Reality adventure, especially in comparison to a conventional gaming experience.

The player slips thoroughly into the role of a spaceship pilot and quickly becomes part of the game world, the space, the far reaching story, the game itself!

The trailer shows the player exploring the vast openness of space and gathering the important minerals needed in order to fight for the freedom of mankind.

About Space Rift: The player will become part of the story

Space Rift stands out due to its cinematic presentation and neat storytelling. Earth has been devastated entirely by a destructive meteor shower, thus forcing humanity to emigrate to Mars. Humans were enslaved by the organizations WEYSS and PANDORA and carve out a miserable existence on the xeric red planet.

Players slip into the role of the veteran pilot Casey, who takes on the hostile organisations in order to liberate humankind from their suffering on Mars. Radio transmissions, newscasts and the interaction with the fondly designed non-player characters on the base station continuously add new thrilling details about the on-going conflict and also reveal pieces of background information.

Upgrade your ship!

Space Rift was developed specifically for Virtual Reality headsets like Oculus Rift, HTC Vive and others. Gamers steer their spaceship through the galaxy and fly through space in their own VR cockpit with panoramic view. They collect valuable resources in order to upgrade their spaceship and equip it with new weapons which can be used later on in the dangerous battle against their enemies.

Real cockpit feeling in outer space

The combination with Virtual Reality leads Space Rift to provide a unique and immersive gaming experience. This motivates the player to advance the story autonomously and to put together newly revealed pieces in the puzzle.

Concurrently, the space ship evolves into being the player’s favourite companion - not only in connection with the quest to free humankind, but also in the course of exploring the whole galaxy. The particular segments of the playable outer space were designed individually by the level designers and therefore offer a vast amount of variety - also thanks to impressive visual effects.

Space Rift will be available for PC in Summer 2016 at a price of USD/ EUR 19.99 (GBP 14.99): http://store.steampowered.com/app/437080. The Android version of Space Rift will also be released in Summer 2016 and the PlayStation VR version is planned for October 2016.
