Fun Trainannounced at San Diego Comic-Con that Tarzan VR™ is currently in production by Stonepunk Studios and will be released episodically later this year for major virtual reality headsets including PlayStationVR, Valve Index, HTC Vive and Oculus Rift S. Leveraging the immersive power of VR, the game will transport players into the fantastic world of Tarzan created by Edgar Rice Burroughs.
TARZAN VR™ is an episodic, single player virtual reality game with carefully balanced elements of exploration, combat, athletics, creature interaction and natural wonder and is experienced as multiple serialized comic-style issues to explore and conquer. Players can swing, swim, climb and fight their way across five open world environments, each offering its own unique set of geographical landscapes and challenges. Additionally, players will have access to unique Tarzan “jungle skills” such as Call of the Wild, Earth Vision and Fish Eye.
Tarzan VR™ is developed by Stonepunk Studios, a team comprised of AAA artists responsible for the indie hit Primordian. Tarzan VR™ is being produced and published by Fun Train, who most recently released the episodic title The Exorcist: Legion VR for PlayStation, Steam & Oculus Quest with developer Wolf & Wood.
“Who hasn’t wanted to swing like Tarzan at some point in their life?” said Douglas Nabors, Fun Train CEO. “Stonepunk Studios is crafting an imaginative world that demonstrates a faithful but unique vision for the Tarzan franchise. We can’t wait for people to experience it.”
“We are especially pleased to partner with Fun Train and Stonepunk Studios to develop our first TARZAN virtual reality game” said Jim Sullos, President of Edgar Rice Burroughs, Inc. “Using this new technology, we believe we have entrusted the best team to develop an exciting game that reimagines Tarzan for a whole new generation.”
