Settlers of Catan Virtual Reality Edition Will Arrive During the Holiday Season
A long time ago, back in 1995 the board game known as Settlers of Catan was released. This is one of the most successful board games in the world and it managed to sell over 20 million copies. Moreover, the board game is so popular that it was ported to numerous digital platforms such as gaming consoles, PCs and even smartphones. Now that 2017 is here and technology keeps on evolving, a special virtual reality Settlers of Catan edition just entered the development process.
Settlers of Catan Virtual Reality
The game studio that’s in charge of developing the upcoming virtual reality game is Experiment7. This is great news for fans of the board game since this isn’t Experiment7’s first rodeo. This game studio is also the company that developed a virtual reality edition of chess. Therefore, Experient7 has more than the necessary qualifications to make Settlers of Catan VR happen.
Oculus Rift and Gear VR
Experiment7 has made a great decision of choosing not to release its VR take on Settlers of Catan as an exclusive title. Therefore, the game will be available on multiple platforms. In fact, the game studio announced that its upcoming title will more than certainly be supported by Oculus Rift and Gear VR among others. What’s really cool about these platforms is that they appeal to broader audiences. The reason why we are saying this is because Oculus Rift is priced at $488.99 while Gear VR costs only $49.99. Therefore, every fan of the classic board game will be able to purchase a VR headset that supports the game.
Sadly, Experiment7 only confirmed that Settlers of Catan VR edition is entering development and didn’t release any footage of it. On the other hand though, the game studio did announce that the game will be ready somewhere around this year’s holiday season.
