Kalypso Media announced Ski Jumping Pro VR - a ski jumping game made with virtual reality technology on made, which is a remake of the game known from mobile devices. The title will be released on PC and PlayStation 4 and will require HTC Vive or PSVR goggles. Andreas Wellinger, a ski jumper who has won two Olympic gold medals and the World Championship title, participates in the development of the game.
“The life of a ski jumper is an adrenaline-filled, thrill-a-minute ride where victory and defeat are very close together - Ski Jumping Pro VR really replicates the edge of the seat thrills and spills and puts you in the centre of one of the most impressive sports in the world. I’ve jumped all over the world and with the accuracy of the hills and venues along with the pressure to perform in competition, Ski Jumping Pro VR is second only to the real thing,” says the athlete.
The game will offer 19 different locations around the world, where we will be able to participate in 62 events. We will get the possibility to perform single jumps, but there will also be a career mode in which we will be able to customize the appearance and develop the skills of our jumper. As the game progresses, we will also unlock new levels, competitions and hills.
An important part of the game will be intuitive controls - we will use motion controllers and our own body to balance and change positions during the jump and landing. The impression of depth and immersion provided by the VR goggles should make Ski Jumping Pro VR a truly unforgettable experience. The title will debut in just a few days, on 6 December. Here are some screenshots from the game.
