Pixel Gear on the PS VR Introduces Multiplayer Game Mode
It was announced today by Oasis Games Ltd, a leading independent Chinese publisher, an exciting new multiplayer update for its PlayStation VR exclusive 3D pixel arcade shooter, Pixel Gear. The new update includes a unique local multiplayer option in which up to three players can join the action with a DualShock controller, offering 1 vs 1, 1 vs 2 and 1 vs 3 game modes.
Check out the launch trailer of Pixel Gear, featuring some gameplay footage:
“In the Pixel Gear mutliplayer mode, the player with the PlayStation®VR headset wields a laser pistol via the PlayStation®Move controller with unlimited ammo and must stop the other players from collecting enough coins before time runs out. Players will be disguised as various monsters and objects on the map and have several tricks up their sleeves to avoid getting caught. Precision is still key for the PS VR player, and shots must be chosen wisely! Shooting a monster or object not controlled by another player will give the other team coins and will help them reach their goal.
