3dRudder enhances your sensations in this incredible first-person shooter in VR
Robo Recall, made by Epic Games, takes you in a 21st century VR World, populated with humanoid robots. Robo Recall is undoubtedly the 1st true First-person Shooter VR game. Every ingredient of a delectable FPS is in here. Yes, there are plenty of guns. And not only guns by the way, but also boomsticks, and futuristic plasma rifles, longer and bigger than you could reasonably imagine. Yes, there are plenty of bad robots who want you dead. But hey, guess what? You can kill them all. Or whack them. Or rip them apart piece by piece. You name it. You are the recall agent. Your score is to shoot everything that moves.
Without the 3dRudder
Robo Recall has been originally developed for the Oculus Rift VR headset. To play the game, you’ll also need the Touch controllers. The controllers are indispensable to play: they are the only way to grab the guns, shoot your weapons, smash the robots, and move in the game. Because as in any VR game, the only way to move, so far, is to teleport. Let’s admit it, it’s not that easy to shoot, hit, and move around, sorry, teleport around, with the help of your only 10 fingers. Ever dreamt of being able just to move with your feet?
With the 3dRudder
Ok, now put your feet on the 3dRudder and restart the game. While you had to teleport using your thumb, you now have the ability to simply move to wherever you want with easy and effortless movements of your feet. You dodge gunfire, pass behind the robots, and turn around to evaluate your opponents. And let’s say it, you now have more time to spot the weapons lying on the ground, and grab the biggest ones. Your blows are more lethal. Why? Because you can get close enough to punch the robots right in the face.
And it goes without saying that piloting your movements with your feet brings a unique depth to the game. You are literally transported by the action, immersed into your play. We’re pretty confident you’ll never want to play this incredible FPS another way.
