Get Even is The Farm 51‘s new photo-realistic shooter, mixing single and multiplayer, horror and thriller. Touted as ‘more than reality’, the game features multiple Virtual Realities using VR systems like Oculus Rift to play the game, but also as a virtual gameplay tool and story element inside the campaign. The plot revolves around two central characters with you choosing your own path through the story as you explore their memories in a story about love, hate, crime and sacrifice.
Flicking between single and multiplayer modes is planned to be a seamless process. Like Titanfall and Darksouls before it, you’ll never know if your next enemy encounter will be AI or an online adversary. Using your cunning and some cool 21st century tech, you’ll face-off with corner-shooting weapons, smartphones, hi-tech gadgets and surveillance systems to seek out your foes and uncover the truth.
While this all sounds well and good, the actual game mechanics are still quite ambiguous at this stage. The real pièce de résistance lies in the visuals. Farm 51 has gone to great lengths to create jaw dropping photo realistic environments and characters, using the latest in 3D photo scanning technology, clever lighting effects and some innovative camera rig contraptions:
