WarDucks, the Irish based Virtual Reality studio have announced the launch of their next title, RollerCoaster Legends.
The title takes you back to Greece and its mythology, including the Minotaur, Kronos, and Hades. Players will speed through various mythical scenes and encounter enchanting characters, all while riding a fast paced rollercoaster with daring drops and turns.
Nikki Lannen, CEO of WarDucks, said of the new release, “We love rollercoasters here at WarDucks but felt what is out there is lacking in certain ways. Many of the rollercoasters available are not focused on your virtual environment and are simply a badly built replica of what is available in real life. We feel as though we have built something which gives the thrill of a rollercoaster but also provides an engaging interesting experience at the same time.”
While VR rollercoasters are not uncommon on Steam, there is a lack of coasters for PSVR; On the rails horror shooter Rush of Blood, and RollerCoaster Dreams are the only two titles on the store. RollerCoaster Legends will appeal to rollercoaster fans and those wanting an unique VR experience. Roller Coaster Legends will be available for Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, and PSVR in late December.
WarDucks, having released 3 Top Selling Virtual Reality titles previously including a rollercoaster, are well placed to build something solid in this genre. They have all the ingredients so it should make for an interesting ride.
