Game developer and publisher DeNA has announced the launch of Protocol Zero on the Oculus Store, exclusively for the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and Gear VR headset. The stealth-based first-person shooter sees players taking on the role of a lone operative, challenged with infiltrating enemy camps without getting caught. As a virtual reality experience, DeNA promises an “intense, heart-pumping” action for players.
In Protocol Zero, players will have access to night, x-ray and thermal vision goggles, which helps players take on the perspective of their hero character as they scan dark rooms and take down their enemies using “silent precision.” “Samsung Gear VR Innovation Edition offers a thrilling experience of complete immersion and discovery in mobile games, and DeNA is excited to be amongst the first to tap into the device’s massive potential,” said Barry Dorf, vice president of partnerships and alliances at DeNA, in a statement.
“We’ve designed Protocol Zero to exclusively leverage the Note 4 and Oculus technology behind the Gear VR, including the smooth 360 degree scanning and movement around environments, use of hi-tech military optics, suspenseful action, and a point-to-point tactical gameplay experience.”
Gamers can download a demo version of Protocol Zero for free now, while a full version of the game will be released at a later date. The game requires the use of the Samsung Gamepad or another Android game controller, in addition to the Gear VR itself.
