Augmented Empire, a new cyberpunk VR role-playing game, will include the voice of a familiar Star Trek actress.
Augmented Empire is “a story-driven tactical RPG set on the island of New Savannah, an isolated neo-noir city divided into three tiers by the ‘Citizen Grade System.’ While the citizens deemed of high societal value live in luxury at the summit, outliers and criminals are forced to live in squalor at the island’s depths.
“From the armchair of their secluded hideout, the player uses simple look-and-click controls to instruct their team of six augmented misfits in a world rendered as an ‘augmented reality’ diorama before their eyes, while interacting with the office around them to investigate new developments, make calls, and develop the skills of their team.”
The voice talent roster includes Star Trek: Voyager‘s Kate Mulgrew, Nick Frost (Shaun of the Dead), Doug Cockle (The Witcher series), and Garrick Hagon (Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope).
“With a strong focus on story and deep but accessible gameplay, we wanted to give Gear VR gamers an extraordinary experience,” said Coatsink CEO Tom Beardsmore. “We’re thrilled with the caliber of talent involved in Augmented Empire.”
Augmented Empire will launch on Samsung Gear VR powered by Oculus this summer, with Gear VR Controller support.
