How might VR reshape the MMOscape?

Post by TheHidden01 on Fri Sep 11, 2015 5:28 pm



Borrowed' from Massively, join in on the weekday discussions and let your opinions be heard!

Oculus Connect 2, a VR conference hosted by the folks behind Oculus, is set for just a few weeks from now. You probably didnít know that, and thatís because we donít cover the VR scene heavily, and thatís because VR appears to go over like a ton of bricks with MMO die-hards unless weíre talking about the Zenimax/Oculus lawsuit (save some popcorn for me, guys).

But a few of you canít stop dreaming about what a future of VR-enhanced MMOs might look like. Massively OP Kickstarter donor Revek is one such dreamer; for todayís Daily Grind, he asks, ďHow do you think virtual reality like Oculus is going to change MMOs?Ē


I donít think VR is having much influence on older games, but thereís no question that nascent MMOs are planning for it the same way a lot of MMOs that came out in the last few years planned for browser or console in addition to PC. Wander, Second Life, Elite: Dangerous, EVE Valkyrie, and even Crowfall all have plans for integrating VR seamlessly. Whether that entices MMO audiences accustomed to point-and-click rather than ultra-realistic immersion is another story.

What do you think? How might VR reshape the MMOscape?

In many ways it's hard to see what spark can come of this current generation of MMOs to create a new boom. In general you need something ground breaking, and I feel VR is not only in the future, but a direct link to the future of MMOs. Therefore I think VR will change everything.

Unless it's totally immersive (think Matrix or Sword Art), not interested, especially for MMOs.
