RocketWerkz Releases New Vive Shooter “Out of Ammo”

New Zealand game studio RocketWerkz have just released their first virtual reality game, Out of Ammo, a Vive exclusive FPS available on Steam.

The game is the brain child of Dean Hall, the controversial creator of the open world survival game DayZ, who left Bohemia Interactive in November 2014 to form his own studio.

Out of Ammo is a VR strategy game (basically a tower defense game) for the HTC Vive that puts you in the commander’s seat against wave after wave of soldiers. Made exclusively for the HTC Vive to make use of motion tracking, the game allows you to move around the battlefield to build defenses and issue orders.

You can directly possess your units to directly engage the enemy making use of cover and preparing your magazines carefully so you don’t (as the title would suggest) run out of ammo!

Key Features
  • Four unique environments to try your skill on
  • Construct defenses such as sandbags and watchtowers
  • Issue orders to your soldiers
  • Five different kinds of units each with special abilities
  • Possess any units directly to control their engagement
  • Call in artillery, airstrikes, and sniper targets
  • Fixed Machine guns, Grenades, and more

Out of Ammo has been designed by RocketWerkz exclusively around the HTC Vive. Possessing your units allows you to utilize the full capability and power of the positional tracking; you can take cover behind sandbags, lean over a tower railing, or duck behind your sandbags and grab a grenade to throw.

Full physics applied to game objects further enhances the experience allowing you to position your magazines in the space around you ready for when you need to reload.
