VizionEck wants you to rethink first-person shooters


12:45 PM on 07.11.2014



I had the most confused look on my face watching this video of VizionEck, a nontraditional first-person shooter game for PlayStation 4. It feels weird to even call it an FPS.

We previously saw an abstract teaser trailer that made little sense and despite the fact that what's shown here is a "Ranger vs. Ranger" match with four players -- actual in-game footage, in other words -- I'm still left wondering what's going on. Thankfully, there's an in-depth gameplay explanation from VizionEck (which the developer's name, too).

After reading that, I'm still trying to wrap my head around VizionEck (the game). Perhaps it's one of those titles you just need to learn for yourself through trial and error. "VizionEck seems complex because it is different. This is the first game of its kind so most concepts need to be explained in detail. However, when it comes to playing, gameplay comes naturally."

It's nice to see innovation in the genre, but there's a whole lot of new going on here.

VizionEck is 'technically' an FPS for PS4, but you could've fooled me

This trailer for VizionEck by a studio also named VizionEck isn't going to make any damn sense yet. Consider holding off for just a bit. Though the video doesn't make it obvious, this is "technically" a first-person shooter ...more

Knight Squad was the most fun I had at PAX South

If you were to take booths' popularity at PAX South and plot them on a heat map, most of the obvious candidates would stick out. Twitch would be red hot, as it constantly had a flurry of people swarming to watch their favorit...more

Medieval contraption builder Besiege looks splendid

Word of Besiege has gotten to me slowly, but now that it's here, I feel obligated to pass the message on. This is a physics-driven medieval puzzle game about building killer contraptions, like this ingenious windmill on wheel...more

Touhou games may come to PlayStation this year

Ah, Touhou Project. The hyper-popular series of bullet-hell shooters has long been a Holy Grail of sorts for non-PC-owning otaku, and the efforts to get games with the Touhou brand on various consoles have been mighty indeed...more
