With Espire 1, we’re delivering VR’s definitive Stealth Experience. Gone are the days of watching a super-spy hero on-screen: by leveraging the head and hand-tracked capabilities of current VR technology, players can physically live out their 007 fantasies as the Espire Model 1 Operative. These stealth mechanics cannot be replicated on another medium.
Players assume the role of an Espire Agent – a drone operator of the future. From the safety of their “Espire Control Theatre” (sized to their Oculus Guardian Boundaries) they deploy the Espire Model 1 operative on assignments around the globe. The player then remote-operates Espire 1 from thousands of Kilometres away – the player’s movement is translated 1:1 into that of Espire with less than 11ms of latency. The “Control Theatre” mechanic is not only a story component; it is used to minimize VR sickness whenever the player performs artificial movement.

Espire 1 is the closest you will get to a Splinter Cell experience until something more official from the Ubisoft franchise swings around. Although it has been delayed a number of times, it is great to see the game release before the holiday season begins. If you fancy some stealth action, give Espire 1 a download.
