Originally set for a 2015 release date, Adr1ft, was a title I was looking forward to for quite some time. However seeing how it would be the perfect game to play in virtual reality, it was delayed to incorporate the Oculus Rift into the game. However looks like the wait is just about over as 505 Games has announced that Adr1ft will be released on March 28, 2016.
ADR1FT is an immersive First Person Experience (FPX) that tells the story of an astronaut in peril. Floating silently amongst the wreckage of a destroyed space station with no memory and a severely damaged EVA suit, the only survivor struggles to determine the cause of the catastrophic event that took the lives of everyone on board. The player fights to stay alive by exploring the wreckage for precious resources, and overcomes the challenges of an unforgiving environment to repair the damaged emergency escape vehicle and safely return home.
And while I never had a chance to get a hands on with the title, I’ve heard nothing but positive feedback regarding Adr1ft. And even though many call it a copy of the movie, Gravity, this still seems like an experience that shouldn’t be missed. Oh yeah, Adr1ft will be playable with or without the Oculus Rift, so don’t fret if you don’t have one. I’m sure your in good company in that department.
