Sparc is one of the most anticipated VR games that has finally hit the market. It is the first full-body virtual sport (“vSport”).
Sparc is basically a skill-based, fast-paced, and physical sport which is just possible in VR. Players need to use your PlayStation Move motion controllers to aim and throw projectiles at the other player inside a sleek virtual arena, defending yourself by dodging, blocking, or deflecting attacks from a live opponent. You can compete against your friends or find challengers through online matchmaking.
The title by CCP Games is surely one of a kind and looks pretty exciting.
Morgan Godat, executive producer at CCP Games’ Atlanta studio notes:
“With Sparc, we’ve set out to deliver an original sport for the current generation of VR hardware. We want to create plasma-clad sporting champions in living rooms via the virtual court, where challengers will meet and compete with other players from around the world.”
According to Hilmar Pétursson, CEO of CCP Games:
“We have been exploring various aspects of VR over the past four years and pushed into new, exciting territories. Out of one of those explorations, we found this amazing, central nervous system-unlocking experience that really feels like a solid next step towards the next generation of virtual reality experiences. As our first release outside of the EVE universe, I’m really looking forward to seeing how people react to this level of innovation.”.
