Farpoint announced for PlayStation VR

A new virtual reality shooter set in a hostile alien world

Hello PS fans. I’m proud to introduce you to Impulse Gear and our first project, Farpoint.

Developed exclusively for play in PlayStation VR, Farpoint is an unnerving space adventure set on a hostile alien world. After crash landing you have to fight to survive as you explore and uncover the planet’s secrets. Your only hope of escape is to keep moving and discover the fate of your team.

Impulse Gear is a small independent developer based in downtown San Francisco. We founded Impulse Gear with one very important mission: to create virtual reality games that would live up to the expectations of you, the gamer. To do that, we worked closely with SIE to develop an entirely new way to play games with the PS VR Aim Controller.

The PS VR Aim Controller offers the most realistic and precise way to control our game. With direct 1-to-1 tracking, you aim in Farpoint just as you would in real life. How you hold and where you point the controller are directly matched in the game. This allows you to do things in Farpoint that just are not possible in a standard FPS game. It also provides an unbelievable sense of presence in the virtual world.

We will have a lot more information about Farpoint soon. In the meantime, feel free to follow Impulse Gear on your favorite social network.

Is the Aim controller just a Move in a different case? Can we use a Move if we already have one?


Yes, it’s just a Move and a Nav controller in a peripheral.


Could you make this work for those who have the Move Sharpshooter too? I don’t want to buy a peripheral for just one game.

Please tell me they’ve added a second analogue ? Although I was pretty good with my move sharpshooter, the learning curve for using that point to turn stuff was just unnecessary adding a massive barrier to enjoyment

This isn’t going to work, look at that thing. Hell if I try to play this game my dog is going to attack it and eat the Move ball at the end.
