VRLA is a huge expo happening this weekend on the west coast showcasing all kinds of virtual reality pioneers. Here’s a demo or game title we’ve heard a lot of chatter on Twitter about the company Survios and their upcoming project named Raw Data. It seems that up until VRLA their new co-op experience had been a mystery production.
Without further ado, the new project by Survios is called Raw Data and is a co-op experience that lets two users with HTC Vive headsets play the action game in the same virtual space. From the sounds of it, the game involves defending against waves of robots from the scene in the image above. You have the option to fend off the robots using several weapons.
Weapons in Raw Data:
- bow and arrow
If you’re heading to the big VRLA expo and want to prepare yourself for controls necessary to use the weapons in Raw Data check out this cool set of instructions the team posted on Twitter earlier today. In a video on the Survios Twitter feed it looks like a player can combat the robots with a katana in one hand and a pistol in the other and the graphic below shows a dual pistol configuration.
There’s not a whole lot more that we know about this experience at this time, but pretty soon there will be a bit more revealed for all to see. Survios is holding a livestream tomorrow (Saturday) night at 8:15 PM PT on Twitch. We imagine this will be a time for those curious to take a ride along with someone playing Raw Data and even ask the developers some questions about the upcoming title.
VRLA is showcase in its third or fourth year, but each year the expo sees huge growth and this year, the year of VR, is no exception. I’m not sure if there’s still time or not, but if you’re in the LA area you need to see if tickets are still available for entry tomorrow. -Never mind, it looks like tickets to the event are already sold out.
We’re just getting onto the scene in this amazing virtual world and one of our major goals is to keep up with new and exciting game titles that you will want to experience on the HTC Vive. Let us know what you think about Raw Data.
