Phantom: Covert Ops is poised to arrive on two different VR platforms next year. It won the Best VR game at E3 from GameCritics this year. It has also gotten a number of other awards, with many people excited for the game. Phantom: Covert Ops will be arriving on both the Oculus Rift and Oculus Quest platforms next year. The launch date is now 2020 because nDreams needed a bit more time to make sure the game will meet their high standards. They’ll be announcing more specifics in the coming months. The press release also says that the title is cross buy. This means that if you happen to own both headsets, you’ll only need to buy the game once to play it on both.

Here is the Oculus Rift version trailer:

 

The two versions of Phantom: Covert Ops have identical gameplay. However, the developers also wanted to play to each headset’s strengths. The additional power of the PC allows for a visually enhanced take on each of the game’s locales. They have improved real-time water reflections, water dynamics, atmospherics, made higher resolution materials, and more to make the game world feel that much more real. You can find out more details about these changes at the blog they have posted to discuss it. Here is a handful of screenshots to take in as well:

About Michael Fontanini

Michael is a veteran gamer in my early 30s, who grew up around video games, with fond memories of the oldies like the NES and SNES. He loves Nintendo but also plays a lot of games on his PC. Michael also enjoys going for walks or bike rides, and loves animals.

Michael is also a computer programmer. This started with a toy he got as a kid called PreComputer 1000 that was made by V-Tech. It had a simple programming mode which is what started him down the road of being a programmer! Michael can program in BASIC, Visual Basic, C++, C#, and is familiar with Java and Lua Script.

Putting programming and gaming together, Michael became a hobbyist game developer which may give him some good insights on game development! Most recently, he has been playing with the free version of the Unity engine (a powerful and easy-to-use game engine).

I love Nintendo but I also play a lot of game's on PC, many of which are on steam. My favorite Nintendo game's include Zelda, Metroid, and Smash Bros to name a few. On PC I love the Half-Life games, as well as most all of the Source Engine games just to name a few.
