Introduction

Developed by CCP Games, Gunjack aims to be a visually stunning, virtual reality, arcade shooter set in the futuristic EVE science fiction universe. The game was built from the ground up for VR using the next-generation Unreal Engine 4 graphics engine. Gunjack takes place in a gorgeous panoramic sci-fi setting filled with fast-paced, immersive action. Players take on the role of a gunjack, a hired mercenary who happens to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. Gunjack was released in the second half of 2015 with the launch of the Samsung Gear VR.

Features

Developed for the Samsung Gear VR headset and used in conjunction with either a Galaxy Note 5, Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 Edge, or the Galaxy S6 Edge Plus smartphone, Gunjack is a first-person arcade shooter where players are put into the role of a turret gunner on a mining ship illegally operating in the outer reaches of space. Their job is to help defend it from pirates, scavengers, and rival corporations.[1]

The game is developed by CCP, and it joins their flagship product, EVE Online, as the second original VR game in development by the studio, alongside DUST 514 and the upcoming VR dogfighting simulator EVE: Valkyrie.[2]

Hilmar Veigar Pétursson, CEO of CCP said, "We believe that virtual reality will be a defining element of gaming's future. It may take some time to get widespread adoption, but we're going to be there on day one. We're making smart investments in VR so we can learn important lessons early and blow people's minds when they get their hands on their first VR headset."[3]

The game features intuitive controls and intense, full-immersion action, wchich is is heightened even further by Gunjack's graphics, built on a solid foundation with Epic's Unreal Engine 4.[4]
