Kate Mulgrew (Star Trek Voyager), Nick Frost (Hot Fuzz, Shaun Of The Dead), Garrick Hagon (Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope, Horizon: Zero Dawn), Doug Cockle (The Witcher Series)… No, we’re not talking about the cast of your next Netflix binge series, we are talking about the cast of a game exclusive to the Samsung Gear VR platform. Sounds pretty darn cool, doesn’t it?!
Well good news, you only need to wait until July 13th, when AUGMENTED EMPIRE, a “tactical turn-based RPG, the first of it’s kind for VR” is released. Engineered by UK Devs Coatsink, the folks that gave us A Night Sky, also exclusive for Gear VR.
About the Game (taken from the Coatsink website): Augmented Empire is a story-driven tactical RPG set on the island of New Savannah, an isolated neo-noir city divided into three tiers by the ‘Citizen Grade System.’ While the citizens deemed of high societal value live in luxury at the summit, outliers and criminals are forced to live in squalor at the island’s depths.
“With a strong focus on story and deep but accessible gameplay, we wanted to give Gear VR gamers an extraordinary experience,” said Coatsink CEO Tom Beardsmore. “We’re thrilled with the calibre of talent involved in Augmented Empire.”
