NetEase Games Makes its VR Debut on Daydream
GUANGZHOU, China, Nov. 11, 2016 -- NetEase, Inc. (NASDAQ: NTES) debuted its virtual reality game Twilight Pioneers at Google I/O 2016. As one of the first games to commit to Daydream, Google's platform for high quality mobile VR built on top of Android, Twilight Pioneers was released on November 10.
Twilight Pioneers is the first VR title developed and to be published by NetEase Games, featuring the company's trademark high quality graphics and addictive gameplay as a result of years of development experience in the world's largest gaming market. More importantly, the game demonstrates the awesome potential of ARPG in a VR setting, and promises an unforgettable gaming experience that will impress the most sophisticated players.
In Twilight Pioneers, players will experience a magical Eastern fantasy with vividly detailed visual and captivating storytelling. The Dark Lord has corrupted the world, but hope remains as an alliance of brave individuals has emerged to resist the evil forces occupying the land. Players are the Chosen Ones, who are called upon to draw their swords to overcome the darkness and restore the land to its former glory.
As a VR game, Twilight Pioneers runs on a unique mode of gameplay interaction. Players create physical movements to trigger events, push along storyline and make their way to boss fights. In combat, players use the Daydream Controller to control weapons and deliver attacks. In order to ensure that players have a comfortable VR experience, the company devised technical solutions: 1) the use of technology called Dynamic View Adjust to make players act and move more comfortably; 2) reduce the color difference to allow players to focus more easily.
Commenting on the company's first VR achievement, Chief Executive Officer and Director of NetEase William Ding said, "Leveraging our track record in game development and innovation, we are confident of delivering the superior VR gaming experience to players in China and around the world."
