So a lot of us have probably been hearing about VR now that the classic controller video games’ days are numbered. So what is Virtual Reality (VR)? It is a computer generated simulation that makes gaming much more immersive or more realistic so to speak.
VR MMO is a the same as VR, the only difference is that MMO is massively multiplayer hence the acronym MMO( massively multiplayer online). In order to understand MMO more we are going to look into three VR games, OrbusVR, Metaworld and Age of Heroes.
This is the first of its kind VR game and its truly wonderful. It features a huge open world, that is 20 hours on the main story quest which is single player, and unlimited time on multiplayer. When playing alone, you can do a lot of things such as going fishing and hunting. You can also be a merchant, selling and buying valuables at your market stall (there are markets). When playing as a group you have an advantage as some monsters can only be defeated by well coordinated efforts by a dozen or so group members. That means that in order to be a great member of a group you have to train yourself in combat by learning the four disciplines of the game, runemage ( memorizing runes that were used to create the world), ranger (mastering the bow and a variety of special arrows) musketeer (mastering the musket and runic orbs) and warrior ( being the protector of the group). Available for HTC Vive and Oculus Rift.
This VRMMO is focused on exploring the vast world. The game is one large world, so you do not have to worry about loading screens, cuts, etc. whilst browsing the world or going inside of buildings. You can own your own area in the metaverse. With great lip sync, and beautiful graphics the game is really well polished. The community seems to be lacking a little bit more than other games, however that can be easy to solve. The game is available for HTC Vive, Oculus Rift, as well as Windows Mixed Reality.
Age of Heroes
This is a VR game that is more focused on combat as the player or players fight demons or bosses in dungeons in a bid to protect the world. The game fosters team work and strategy.Players get to choose between one of four classes that is mages (masters of power), archers (trained fighters), warlocks ( masters of fighting demons) and priests ( masters of healing and resurrection). The avatars in the game react to each others movement and can dodge attacks by moving out of the way, so once you have your team you can get better gear to increase your characters ability. It is available for HTC Vive, Playstation VR and Oculus Rift.
Now that you know about these wonderful games, enjoy VR!
