CNET puts team VR to the test in virtual Mars mission
Hello, I'm Luke Westaway here in Barcelona mobile [UNKNOWN] 2016.
We're looking at a team based VR game.
Now, three of us are going to have to try and survive in space, and all I have to do to succeed is maintain a professional demeanor and work well with my colleagues.
The game we're playing is one for three players and so everyone working together to check out things that are happening in their peripheral vision.
For instance, if one team member is told they need to cool down the engines, then another team member will have to find the button to cool the engines in their view and hit that trigger.
The challenge in the game is solving problems that your teammates have asked you to fix while simultaneously communicating what you're being told to do, to them.
Change escape system to one.
I got that.
Atmosphere, I got that.
It's fast and frantic and while lots of the VR demos that we've seen previously have been something of a solo affair, it's really nice to see more and more team exercises emerging.
So I have to say that was pretty tense but I think my team pulled through.
And notice I say my team.
Anyway, that was really fun and it definitely gives me hope that there could be a future for multiplayer as well in VR.
Anyway, check out cnet.com/mwc for much more tech.
