Multi-Platform Sci-Fi Shooter Delivers Intense Co-Op Action and Authentic FPS Movement


VANCOUVER, British Columbia -- Developed by Archiact in Vancouver BC, Evasion is an intense VR Bullet Hell game, designed to immerse players in high intensity co-op multiplayer combat. Gamers will experience the next generation in VR locomotion, designed from the ground up for an authentic FPS action game. Featuring multiple hero classes suitable for all play styles, gamers can join up to three friends or go it alone in an extinction-level battle for survival.   

Explosive VR Combat
Evasion will deliver cinematic destructible environments and intense bullet hell action. Players will team up and fight their way through laser-fueled maelstroms and overwhelming odds. Their ‘Swarm A.I’ enemy behaviour system adds a new level of tension, making tactical movement and teamwork critical to your squad’s survival. Experience the charge of heroism as you and your team run and gun to complete vital objectives, rescue one another and overcome explosive ambushes.

Built For Locomotion
Evasion will empower gamers to walk, run and dive into battle with incredible locomotion freedom. As devoted fans of the FPS VR genre, the goal at Archiact is to deliver on the promise of free movement that VR gamers crave. Players can choose from highly crafted locomotion modes designed for Evasion’s FPS gameplay that can be customized for their own play style and comfort level.

“Archiact has been crafting immersive VR entertainment since 2013,” said Kurt Busch, Studio Head at Archiact. “With Evasion, the team is using everything we’ve learned and weaving our experience into a truly genre-defining AAA title. With innovative locomotive movement and intense FPS gameplay, we’re convinced Evasion will prove a stand-out VR experience and we can’t wait for gamers to play it themselves.”

Evasion will set the standard for environmental VR destruction and explosive real-time FX, taking full advantage of IKinema’s state-of-the-art player avatars and the latest Unreal Engine 4 technology. The result? Stunningly immersive visuals and cinematic gameplay that will define it as a truly memorable VR combat experience.

Fight Solo or Join a Squad
Make your mark on the battlefield and choose from four hero classes including the devastating Striker, indispensable Surgeon, calculating Engineer or valiant Warden. All four classes have their own unique strengths, weapons & ultimate abilities. Customize your class as you level up by upgrading your abilities and making your own unique build. Players can combine class types to create the most effective team.
