nDreams Announces VR Stealth Action Game Phantom: Covert Ops

Publisher and developer nDreams today announced its new VR stealth action title, Phantom: Covert Ops.

The UK-based studio has said that the title had been created in partnership with Oculus Studios, which will be released for the Oculus Quest and the Oculus Rift.

Phantom: Covert Ops is set in 1991 and takes place after the events of the Cold War, with players taking control of an elite operative.

As the operative, players learn that a ‘significant force’ has been rallying together at a former Soviet Union naval base, which is based off the coast of the Black Sea.

According to nDreams, players are able to use a more stealth-driven option to progress over the course of the campaign or take the fight right to the enemy.

The developer’s title is slated to launch at some point in 2019.

“We have been developing VR games for more than five years and Phantom: Covert Ops is the culmination of all that hard work and learning,” says Patrick O’Luanaigh, the CEO at nDreams.

“I’m immensely proud of what the team has achieved, breaking new grounds in VR immersion to create a stealth action game built around 1:1 interaction, player choice and an innovative and intuitive on-water movement mechanic.”
