“Volume” was a PS4 game which developed by Mike Bithell and released somewhere around last year. This is one of the few PS VR games that is offering a free upgrade to its VR version for all the PS4 console users. The game “Volume” was initially released to be played on the PS4 console and later on ported to Vita.
The game Volume is based on Robin Hood Legend, where a thief Robert finds a device called “Volume” which allows him to carry out robberies. The device has artificial intelligence which guides Robert on how to use the device.
The VR version of this game might involve few changes which will even include a change in characters and a new storyline. The VR version might contain 30 new levels, a new cast of voice actors and a refreshing gameplay experience in VR from the third person perspective.
In this game, the main motive is that you need to be as sneaky as you can(LOL).You are actually on a mission where you need to hide your character from different guards and try to get away from each one of them. These guards have different patterns of movements and you need to get out of their line of sight else the simulation starts all over again.
In VR the game looks more like a top view of the lobby, however, you have the options to zoom in and that gives you the “Mission Impossible” feel. The game looks amazing when you zoom it right in and see yourself trying to escape without being noticed.
The full view of the simulation can be seen when you zoom out so that you get a fair idea of how you should move around the place to avoid these guards. The intention of introducing it in VR was to make it more immersive, although I do feel that playing from a third person perspective makes it a little less immersive and kind of awkward.
I wish they could have made it a First person game which would have resulted in the game being relatively more immersive.The top view of the entire place just makes you feel like playing the entire game in 3D. I really hope it doesn’t turn out bad but I have a feeling that there is a possibility that this game might be a little less immersive than the rest of the games that are being launched along with the PS VR.
Moving on to the controllers that can be used with this game,you can use your DualShock 4 controller unlike the fancy pants Aim controllers which are used in games like Farpoint, this brings a sense of relief to our wallet.
Volume should be fun in VR especially when completely zoomed in. It can be upgraded for free if you already have this game on your PS4 and the upgrade is available for all the regions. So, along with the demo disks, we have something else to check out and that would be the Volume:Coda. I hope it is as good as it looks in its trailer and it doesn’t hit the trigger of motion sickness either.
