Hey folks. I’m Jakub Kwinta from Anshar Studios, the developers of Detached. I’m happy to announce that our new PvP VR shooter, Telefrag VR, hits PlayStation Store July 19. Check out the game’s gameplay trailer and read on for details about the arsenal of weapons you’ll soon be able to try out on the battlefield.

For those not familiar with the game, Telefrag VR is a fast-paced, PvP arena shooter set in an alternate universe in which the Roman Empire never collapsed. As a space gladiator, you fight in abstract arenas, using sci-fi weapons instead of a shield and spear.

At the concept stage of building Telefrag VR, we asked ourselves how we could bring the classic vibe of the great titles of old to the virtual reality experience. When it came to designing locations with impossible geometry, many classic titles inspired us. The same can be said for the weaponry. Speaking of which, I’ll be introducing the Telefrag VR armory shortly, and I’m sure some of these bad boys will feel familiar to you.

But first, it’s worth mentioning that every weapon has two firing modes. You can use both hands (one gun in each) at the same time and choose the most effective loadout for a given situation. The best one is, of course, the teleport attack, which can be used as a form of locomotion or as a weapon. So, keep an eye out for the teleport orb!

Rocket Launcher

An absolute must-have on the battlefield, this long-distance monster allows you to release a series of rockets that can be controlled during flight – perfect for use on maps that have a lot of open space. It’s an excellent choice for novice gladiators, as small mistakes in aiming will be irrelevant due to the rockets’ awesome area of destruction.

Flak Cannon

A real classic in the arena shooter genre, the Flak Cannon is a tool of brutality. But it also requires quick wits, as the bouncing projectiles can reach an enemy behind cover, while deadly mines can be deployed using the alternative mode. Remember to check the status of the weapon on its display as the Flak Cannon needs a few seconds to reload.

Plasma Rifle

A huge hit with fans of automatic weapons, this classic sci-fi rifle unleashes a series of plasma missiles upon your enemy from a great distance. Or you can hone your sharpshooting skills by limiting yourself to a single shot at a time. This second option may cause less damage, but it prevents the weapon from overheating.

Laser Pistol

Who shot first, Greedo or Mr. Solo? If one of them had a Laser Pistol to hand, there’d be no doubt. An extremely fast weapon, but like the good old Desert Eagle, it doesn’t forgive mistakes. Undoubtedly, the advantage is the maniacal, ricocheting beams that are capable of massive damage. This is a love letter to the railgun.

Particle Cannon

This weapon shoots a straight, continuous lightning bolt, pushing back anyone who stands in its path. Although the Particle Cannon causes little damage, it’s an extremely malicious weapon which combatants would be wise not to underestimate.

Telefrag VR launches July 19 at PlayStation Store with PS Move, DualShock 4, and 3dRudder motion controller support. PvP multiplayer mode will feature cross-platform gameplay as well as two alternative locomotion types.

      Hi,
      The price will be the same in every region: 24,99 USD/EUR.

    Ugh, yeesh. Yet again another killer-looking PSVR title without any official Aim Controller support at launch

    • Jakub Kwinta

      From the beginning, we were thinking about implementing Aim controller support. The problem, however, is that in Telefrag VR you have two weapons, so we devoted time to implementing 3dRudder support, which in combination with Move controllers can be very immersive.

    How did you guys deal with nausea? I started feeling not well just by watching trailer and imagining playing it in VR

      The game has two locomotion modes: Dash Movement and Free Locomotion. For players sensitive to motion sickness, the first option will be more convenient due to the fact that the player does not move smoothly. In addition, the options of the game include changing the value of the rotation angle or blinders scale.

    I didn’t even know that the 3drudder existed until I read the comments here. It looks like exactly the fix to what’s made VR FPSs a lackluster experience for me, and lowered my interest in games like this one.

    Now that I know about it, I absolutely plan to pick up a 3drudder and this game!

    Geez, I sound like an advertisement.

    • Jakub Kwinta

      Thanks for your kind words :) In terms of fast-paced Arena Shooter, we decided to add 3dRudder support. It works perfectly in the smooth locomotion steering scheme.

  • I love the Quake III vibe I’m getting from the trailer. Is this online, bots, or both?

    Looks awesome!
