The team at Impulse Gear is excited to bring you the Farpoint Versus Expansion Pack. The Versus Expansion Pack is free for all Farpoint owners and features two new PvP modes that pit two players with active PS Plus memberships against each other. In a unique twist, players can spawn enemy creatures from the planet and use them strategically to gain an advantage. In addition to the new modes, the Versus Expansion Pack also includes three new player skins and 15 new weapons which are unlocked by gaining Player and Weapon XP.
Starting off with the two new PvP modes – Deathmatch and Uplink. In Uplink, communication relays are dropped into the play area and players must capture and hold them to gain points. Killing the other player and their enemy AI will also award points.
Hello PlayStation Blog readers!
Today we are excited to announce new DLC for Farpoint, the Cryo Pack. The Cryo Pack takes players to two new regions of the planet which are covered in snow and ice, with enemies reskinned to adapt to the cold. Players will also receive a new skin representative of an explorer who has trekked through the snowy wastelands.
This is a very exciting moment for everyone at Impulse Gear. Farpoint has gone gold and is on track for release on May 16, 2017!
In our past few PS.Blog posts we’ve talked about the PS VR Aim controller and how it brings a whole new level of control and immersion to Farpoint. We’ve also discussed the co-op mode and how you and a friend can play online together in VR. Now we want to take a moment to share a little about the single-player narrative experience that Farpoint offers.
More shocking than an alien spider jumping at your face, I’m happy to reveal Farpoint co-op! The undiscovered planet in Farpoint is unpredictable and dangerous, but no longer does it have to be a solitary experience. You and a friend can explore the planet together in cooperative levels.
Farpoint places you on on a distant hostile world with your only chance of survival and escape being to uncover its secrets and reunite with your team. In addition to the full single-player campaign, sharing the virtual world of Farpoint in co-op has been a key objective of the project from the beginning.
Hello PS fans. I’m proud to introduce you to Impulse Gear and our first project, Farpoint. Developed exclusively for play in PlayStation VR, Farpoint is an unnerving space adventure set on a hostile alien world. After crash landing you have to fight to survive as you explore and uncover the planet’s secrets. Your only hope of escape is to keep moving and discover the fate of your team.
