Bolvërk Games and PlayStack released word today that a new sequel to their VR shooting gallery Dick Wilde (2017) is slated to launch sometime in February.
The sequel, dubbed Dick Wilde 2, promises to bring cross-platform online co-op, more boss fights, levels, and a wider range of difficulty levels for all supported headsets, which include PSVR, Oculus Rift, and HTC Vive.
Game publisher PlayStack says that Dick Wilde 2 takes users to “a host of new locales which have been infected by the massive outbreak of toxic spillage, creating a foul sludge that has mutated the local wildlife into the most darn-tootin’ vicious critters ever seen by the river folk.”
New weapons include gravity guns, arrows infused with divine lightning, mortar strikes, AI assassin drones, and hopefully some of the fan favorites too such as the revolvers, the shotgun and shield, and paintball guns.
Unlike the previous Dick Wilde, the sequel is said to feature cross-platform VR online co-op, letting PSVR and PC VR users play together. PSVR users may have a leg-up in the aiming department though, as the sequel is confirmed to support both PlayStation Aim in addition to PlayStation Move.
“Our fans made Dick Wilde a success and we’re doing everything we can to give them all that they want in the sequel,” said Bo Bennekov at Bolvërk Games. “We are so proud that Dick Wilde 2 features online VR co-op – it was our most requested feature and a lot of hard work, but we know players are going to love shooting mutated piranhas with a buddy by their side.”
Dick Wilde 2 is also said to include other fan-requested features including a wider range of difficulty settings, more power-ups and “screen-filling” boss fights.
