‘ARKTIKA.1’ Devs Detail Game’s Deadly Weaponry


ARKTIKA.1 is an anticipated Oculus Rift exclusive coming from renowned developer 4A Games, the studio behind the Metro series. In a new video, the developers explore some of Arktika.1’s diverse arsenal, including a particularly cool gun that can shoot around corners.

Arktika.1 is shaping up to be a rather beautiful looking VR shooter.  Significant attention to detail has been paid to the game’s weapons which sport unique functionality and somehow rather beautiful designs. Each weapon is also customizable with attachments that modify their behavior, and players can even give the guns custom paint jobs.

In a new video, Artika.1 developer Andrii Krasavin explores three of the game’s guns: the ‘Minotaur’ revolver, which can fire in single or double-action modes and reloads with a sideways flick of the wrist; the ‘Carver’ electromagnetic smart pistol, which can target enemies behind cover, allowing the player to arch the bullet’s trajectory; and the ‘Taipan’ plasma gun, a short range shotgun-like with breach-action chamber that reloads with a downward flick of the wrist. Krasavin also shows how the player can add a little guns-slinging flair into the mix by tossing the weapons about—just be sure not to drop them in the heat of combat.

In our hands-on with the game earlier this year, we found the Carver to be particularly satisfying, with well crafted sound effects and visuals making the weapon feel very unique and powerful.

Despite their detail, the three weapons featured in the video are just a fraction of the game’s full arsenal. You can see more of the weapons in action in a video showing 25 minutes of Arktika.1 gameplay released back at the end of February.

Arktika.1 launches on the Oculus Rift in Q3 2017.
