Coming later this year, players can continue the fight against OPHIS on their own home turf with the Espire 2 Mixed Reality Mode: literally. The free update will be supported on the Meta Quest 3, Quest 2 and Quest Pro headsets.
Announced during the UploadVR Showcase, the Espire 2 Mixed Reality Mode features a series of stealth missions that grow and adapt to the player’s personal playspace. Missions are deliberately focused and optimized for all environments ranging from small areas to multiple rooms.
You play as Tempest. Tempest is an agent who must pass a series of Mixed Reality Missions. This is to earn their stripes and be cleared to pilot an Espire Frame. Each mission offers a variety of objectives, constantly changing familiar surroundings as you move; engage with enemy soldiers, bipedal mechs, electronic threats, and more that emerge to prevent you from completing your objective.
Espire 2 Mixed Reality Mode Key Experiences:
- Experience Espire 2’s signature stealth sandbox as all of its 1:1 tracked game mechanics translate perfectly into a mixed reality experience.
- Espire Vision: Raise your hand to your head and squeeze the trigger to use Espire Vision. Your real-world environment is tinted green and exposure is adjusted so darker shadows become bright!
- Hold Up Guards: Raise your hand to your mouth and speak to the guards. Your spoken commands are interpreted by Meta’s voice SDK AI assistant and translated into game commands. You can hold up a guard right in your living room.
- Take Down Guards: Squeeze the trigger on your controller and see a tranquillizer launcher pop out of your own forearm! Aim your arm.
