It's time to upgrade that firewall, as Archiact today announced that Darknet, the award-winning cyberpunk hacking game, is now available on PlayStation VR for $14.99 USD. With the addition of a broader audience from PS VR, independent game developer E McNeill wonders if players will finally uncover hidden secrets yet to be discovered in this innovative game.
"Many VR games offer a novel experience or a cool way of exploiting the technology, but holding a player's interest for a long time requires something more," said E McNeill, Darknet creator. "Darknet was designed to be easy to learn, difficult to master, and full of secrets. In fact, even now, there are secrets in the game that have never been found, even though they're hiding in plain sight."
Darknet is an incredibly deep strategy/puzzle game that was built from the ground-up for virtual reality. In Darknet gamers become elite hackers, contracted to retrieve data from the world's most secure networks. Players dive into the net, install viruses, inject code, and hack their way through cybersecurity in an experience inspired by a classic cyberpunk vision of the future.
Darknet for PS VR gives players a virtual window to a hidden digital world. The title received industry accolades when it was previously released on Oculus Rift and Gear VR, and has been refined and tailored for PS VR boasting several new improvements. This includes full audio integration added to the PlayStation 4 Dualshock controller, art enhancements to the UI and main menu, as well as all-new PlayStation trophies for players to earn.
