4A Games have finally revealed one of the two projects they are currently working on at the Oculus Keyonte today in San Jose, CA.

Arktika. 1 is a new “highly immersive, action-packed, first-person shooter designed exclusively for Oculus Touch. Using the newest version of the 4A Engine and set for release in Q2 2017, ARKTIKA.1 delivers the most impressive visuals ever seen in VR, along with the immersion and world building that 4A Games is known for, in a full AAA package. Experience a post-apocalyptic vision of the future like never before; in full VR,” according to the press release.

The game will place players in a “world [that] has fallen into a new ice again in the aftermath of a silent apocalypse. Only the equatorial regions are still habitable, yet pockets of humanity survive in small numbers all over the planet, hanging onto existence in the resource-rich territories to the north and south– resources that everyone wants to control… Protect the colony in the wastelands of old Russia from raiders, marauders, and strange creatures.”

A reveal trailer accompanied the announcement for the game which you can view at the bottom of the article. Currently Arktika. 1 has only been announced for Oculus. We’ll have to wait and see if they announce it for any other VR systems, but looking at the track record of Oculus exclusives like Insomniac’s Edge of Nowhere, and Gunfire Games’ Chronos, it may be a while before we see it on any other platforms, if ever.

Luckily 4A Games has another project up their sleeve which was confirmed by the studio themselves earlier this year. We’ll be sure to keep an eye out for further announcements from 4A so stay tuned to OnlySP on Facebook and Twitter.
