CatsAndVR Chats With: Jennifer Dowding, Senior Producer on the recently announced Co-Op FPS EVASION.
Evasion is an intense VR bullet hell game, designed to immerse players in high intensity co-op multiplayer combat in the same vein as Destiny and Halo.
Announced today from the Archiact development team in Vancouver BC, Evasion is looking to deliver cinematic destructible environments and intense bullet hell action with an AI enemy
behavior system designed to make tactical movement and teamwork critical to your squad’s survival.
“Archiact has been crafting immersive VR entertainment since 2013,” said Kurt Busch, Studio Head at Archiact. “With Evasion, the team is using everything we’ve learned and weaving our experience into a truly genre-defining AAA title. With innovative locomotive movement and intense FPS gameplay, we’re convinced Evasion will prove a stand-out VR experience and we can’t wait for gamers to play it themselves.”
I had some hands on time with Evasion at a recent event and though the team seem to be looking to conjure Destiny with the art style it also does an excellent job of creating the level of gameplay that is known from that franchise. Evasion has an excellent locomotion system and the frantic co-op gameplay never gave me any motion sickness or framerate drops. The demo I played was very polished both in art and gameplay. If someone had said this was a Destiny VR prototype I would have believed them, instead this is a nice addition to the VR FPS landscape by a ragtag Vancouver team. I had a chance to learn more about the game when I chatted with Evasion's Senior Producer, Jennifer Dowding .
From compelling mission objectives, to powerful player class combinations and blockbuster-quality FX and destruction, Evasion is looking to more than hold its on the the VR FPS battleground.
