Battlezone is a VR App. Battlezone is a remake of a first-person tank combat arcade game from Atari released in November 1980. The game was developed for PlayStation VR and Oculus Rift by Rebellion Developments, the same company that is behind Sniper Elite and the Alien vs. Predator series.

Features

The game was officially announced in 2015 on the official Playstation blog by Jason Kingsley.[1] Much like the original, players are placed inside a cockpit of a futuristic tank through which they view the game world.

Battlezone for VR features new environments, such as metropolitan areas and industrial wastelands, and the game plays a slight homage to the simple visual style of the original Atari game, but with modern visual effects and high fidelity necessary for a true sense of presence.

The goal was to “use VR to make each environment feel as awe-inspiring and monumental as possible from the cockpit of your tank.”[2] The official E3 trailer showed new types of weapons, tanks, abilities, and enemies.

In March 2016, developers released a campaign reveal trailer, which, for the first time, showed how the singleplayer campaign is going to be incorporated into the game and also demonstrated several new levels and a new, redesigned cockpit. According to the accompanying blog post on PlayStation blog, "a sizeable single-player campaign [is] at the heart of the Battlezone."[3] The campaign map is structured across a series of interlocking "hexes" that need to be completed to progress to the finale, and it’s up to you to forge a path through the campaign of your own choosing.

When players restart their progress, a whole new set of "hexes" is generated procedurally, making it possible to replay the game again and again. Each replay gives players a chance to unlock new weapons and upgrades.
