Gunheart is a multiplayer sci-fi shooter for the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive VR headsets from a Seattle-based virtual reality game studio Drifter Entertainment. The title is the first from a team that includes veterans from Microsoft Game Studios and Epic Games. 

Gunheart has been designed to take full advantage of motion controls and 3D spaces within VR. It runs on Epic’s Unreal Engine 4, and it will be coming to Oculus Rift and HTC Vive this summer and PlayStation VR later in the year.


The game handles movement using the familiar teleport system, which helps to get rid of the nausea associated with movement in VR. Players teleport quickly through levels, engaging alien enemies with a variety of weapons, which can be held in either hand. You can teleport to vertical spaces, gaining an advantage on the aliens below.


Gunheart has level that can take a while to get through. It’s not simply an experience where you play for 15 minutes and then you’re done. There’s a loose campaign narrative to tell you why you’re fighting. There are a lot of weapons, ranging from crossbows to assault rifles. The crossbow was easier to shoot, but it reloaded more slowly. If you put your hands together, you can transform your guns into a single, rapid-fire gatling gun.
