Here we go! Tek Recon give us a sneak peek of the Beta AR App that can be used with your blasters!
What's on show? We get powerups, scopes, sound effects, and gametypes, check the video below
The other question I've got to ask is if the Host of the game crashes out (dead battery, phone fault) or just device freezes up - I'm going to guess that on whole the game drops out or will another person become the Host? I will find this out and update!
What is not clear is if the game runs on an honour system for hits? Will players have to accept a hit if it is called, or will the game mode keep track of hits? With no IR system, i'm guessing it's this case.
I got to say, i'm hella excited for this, they have so many small additions to the App layout that adds something we have never been able to experience before.
What I would like to know is, will they open up the source for fans to create their own UI? Add their own creative flair in programming to add on the awesomeness of this? Time will tell, I've posed the question to them, lets see what they say!
From what I've seen and had feedback of so far, this will be a definite hit with Halo/COD/FPS gamers. Stock gamers have expressed an interest, with a small crowd saying it won't be part of their game - worried their smartphone will get smashed up.
Do let me know what you think, this feedback is important for us to help shape this product in what we fans want to see.
