The stealth genre isn’t one that springs to mind immediately when you think of the kinds of games that would work in VR, but that’s quite unfair. After all, being able to carefully peek around obstacles, line up a headshot or use your arsenal of gadgets is entirely compatible with a headset and controllers. Fortunately, I’ve been able to try out an upcoming game at E3 that shows how well VR and stealth can combine.

Espire 1: VR Operative is a title currently in development by Digital Lode and published by Tripwire Interactive, which is due to launch later this year. The dev team comes from Melbourne, Australia, and this comes across in game quite clearly. All the voice actors are Australian, and the Australian Government is your in-game employer, funding your sneaky activities.
