So I got my first look at Asgard's Wrath last week while attending PAX East and man lemme tell ya this game is AWESOME! Asgard's Wrath was by far the game I was most looking forward to trying out in the new Oculus Rift S and I'm happy to say it did not disappoint!
The first thing I noticed was just how bright and clear the game looked on the new screens of the Rift S. The increased visual fidelity was very welcome and helped to make the visuals of the game even more stunning! The games graphics look top notch and the character animations are very well done.
After picking my jaw back off the floor from being amazed by the beautiful graphics I noticed just how satisfying the combat felt.... Finally I feel like I am standing there fighting for my life against enemies that are scaled well and look and move very convincingly. At one point I was really starting to feel a sense of panic during the fights that I have not felt in a long time in a VR game like this one.
Overall the demo I did consisted of 2 training areas, a sort of prologue and an arena fight. The game will of course feature much more than that and I'm even more excited for the release now that I have experienced it for myself!
If Asgard's Wrath is any indication of the quality of the VR games we are going to see at launch for the Rift S then I think 2019 is gonna be a damn good year got Virtual Reality Gaming! What are your thoughts on Asgard's Wreath or any of the other upcoming VR titles for 2019? Lets discuss it in the comments below. -)
