With the advent of virtual reality headsets, first-person shooter (FPS) games are becoming some of the first to adopt the technology. Raw Data is a new FPS title that takes full advantage of VR technology to immerse players in the game’s world.
Released on the Steam gaming platform by developer Survios Studios, Raw Data takes advantage of the HTC Vive headset and motion controllers. Where traditional FPS games use a mouse or controller to move and look around, Raw Data instead uses real world movements, like turning your head and walking, to control your character.
Unlike many other early VR games available now, Raw Data includes a co-op multiplayer mode. Linking through Steam, two players can team up to take on the game’s campaign. Both can work together to fight off the game’s enemies, or one can fight while the other collects data crucial to the game’s story.
Available for purchase on Steam, Raw Data has an overall review rating of “Very Positive” on the gaming platform.
