4A Games (the studio behind the award-winning Metro series) has been hard at work on the Oculus Touch exclusive, ARKTIKA.1. We’re thrilled to share some new details on the game’s storyline, gameplay, and high-end VR visuals!

Nearly a century in the future – in the aftermath of a silent apocalypse – the planet has entered a new ice age. Only the equatorial regions remain habitable, yet pockets of humanity still manage to survive in small numbers on resource-rich, highly desirable territories to the north and south. As a mercenary hired by Citadel Security, you must protect one of the last colonies in the wastelands of old Russia from violent raiders, marauders, and horrifying creatures.

Capitalizing on the latest version of the 4A Engine, ARKTIKA.1 immerses you in a post-apocalyptic society facing technological and biological horrors that threaten the twilight of mankind. With breathtaking detail and superior shooting mechanics, ARKTIKA.1 is on a fast course to redefine the scope and graphical fidelity of VR first-person shooters.

Available exclusively on Oculus Touch, ARKTIKA.1 has been featured in a number of outlets – including EGM Now, Wearable, Game Informer, PC Advisor, The Verge, and The Koalition.
