Oh, you can use the Oculus Rift in one spot? And you can walk around a little square with the Vive? Sega, with plans for a virtual reality shooter that lets you run around inside a warehouse, thinks that’s cute.
They’re working with Australian company Zero Latency on a giant co-operative shooter which, according to the Financial Review, “will have Sega Live Creation opening a permanent warehouse-sized virtual reality centre in Tokyo, where customers will be able to don VR headsets powered by Zero Latency’s technology and run around shooting zombies.”
Sega won’t be using its own hardware or games; everything will be provided by Zero Latency, so this clip showing the company’s zombie game concept might be pretty close to the finished article:
While the game concept looks...serviceable, the hardware—some of which is made by a military contractor—is what’s really interesting. Those guns look badass, and the backpacks, while primarily designed to act as the central hub for all the gear you carry, also have the ability to offer all kinds of sensory feedback, from vibrations to heat and smell.
There’s no word on any kind of projected release or completion for the project.
