The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild VR Support to “Make it a Multiplicative Gameplay Experience”

Breath of the Wild

A post by The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild technical director Takuhiro Dohta revealed the goal of the game’s upcoming VR mode will be to “make it a multiplicative gameplay experience.”

Announced earlier this month, a free update will be released on April 26 to make Breath of the Wild compatible with Nintendo’s latest Labo item: the VR Kit. The VR mode can be used at any time during the player’s exploration by selecting it from the options menu.

Mechanically, the game will play the same as before with the exception of the camera will be moved with the player’s head. The VR feature will be compatible with existing save data, as it was designed to get players back into the game.

“The concept of this update is to add a little twist to the world of Hyrule to give players, even those who’ve played the game a lot, a reason to come back and get even more enjoyment out of the game,” Dohta said. “One of the core goals during development for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild was to make it a “multiplicative gameplay” experience, in which players could find their own fun and find their own ways to play.”

The VR support update will be available for download April 26. For all the latest on the game and much more from the world of single-player gaming, keep checking in with OnlySP on FacebookTwitterYouTube, and join the discussion in our community Discord server.

Report: Game of Thrones Creator Collaborating With FromSoftware

FromSoftware Game of Thrones

The writer of A Song of Ice and Fire, the book series behind the popular television show Game of Thrones, has reportedly been consulting on a FromSoftware title.

In a blog post on his official website, George R. R. Martin stated that he has “consulted on a video game out of Japan.”

Gematsu has reported that a contact familiar with FromSoftware—the Japanese development studio known for Dark SoulsBloodborne, and Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice—has shared that Martin is working with the studio on a project known internally as “GR.”

According to Gematsu‘s contact, the project, which has been in development for three years, is an open-world game and will feature horse riding. The player will be able to visit several kingdoms and obtain abilities by killing their leaders. Hidetaka Miyazaki, director of some of FromSoftware’s most acclaimed titles, is reportedly working on the game.

Gematsu reports that the title will be officially announced at Microsoft’s E3 press conference later this year.

YouTube channel Spawn Wave reported in March about a rumour regarding a potential collaboration between Martin and FromSoftware, so this recent report gives even more validity to the speculation. However, without any official word, the news should be taken with a grain of salt.
