HTC showed off eight Ready Player One-inspired experiences at the film’s debut event at SXSW. Now, the company has released three of these experiences on Viveport in a single download called Ready Player One: OASIS Beta.
Here’s the full list of mini-games available in Oasis Beta:
- Planet Gauntlet – Navigate through a seemingly endless dungeon while the undead seek to destroy you. Collecting gold will improve your score and eating food will restore your health, but only your bow skills will ensure that you make it our alive. Developer: Directive Games
- Planet Doom – Battle for the OASIS – Help to save the OASIS by defeating waves of IOI Sixers. Advance through the trenches of Planet Doom towards the snowy planes that surround Anorak’s Castle. With an arsenal of potent firepower, you must stop the Sixers from controlling the fate of the OASIS. Developer: Steel Wool Studios
- Planet Doom – Rise of the Gunters – Fight against a nearly invincible army of highly trained IOI Sixers alone OR with up to two of your friends! Proceed with caution as you defeat Sixers, collect their coins, find power ups and survive a merciless onslaught of hyper-explosive kinetic action for as long as you can survive. The OASIS is yours. Take it back from IOI by yourself or with up to two fellow Gunters! Developer: Drifter Entertainment, Inc.
The download is available for free from Viveport, although at least one of the games is launching on Steam soon—Drifter Entertainment’s Rise of the Gunters—which includes support for HTC Vive, Oculus Rift and Windows “Mixed Reality” VR headsets.
If that’s not enough to satiate your need for Ready Player One goodness before the film officially launches on March 29th, social VR platforms Sansar is still hosting an Aech’s Garage experience, and TheWaveVR has reimagined the film/novel’s ‘Distracted Globe’ nightclub, replete with ’80s hits and plenty of nostalgia to keep you spinning like a record, baby.
There’s still no word on when Morph3D’s Ready Player One – Avatar Creator will arrive. You can sign up for more information on the Morph3D website.
