(JULY 28, 2016) Sidekick VR, the leading cross-platform mobile VR game publisher, has partnered with DeNA to bring Protocol Zero to a broad range of mobile VR headsets throughout 2016, ensuring that a mass audience can experience the immersive first-person stealth-action game.
Sidekick VR has just updated Protocol Zero to include touchpad control functionality for the Samsung Gear VR powered by Oculus. A gamepad is no longer required to play the game.
Additionally, Sidekick VR has confirmed a summer release for Protocol Zero on Google Cardboard-compatible VR headsets (Android and iOS), and a future release on Google Daydream.
“DeNA’s Protocol Zero has been one of the most downloaded titles in the Gear VR store,” said Guy Bendov, CEO of Sidekick VR. “We are thrilled to expand the audience by adding touchpad functionality to the Gear VR release, and expanding the product to owners of Cardboard and Daydream headsets later this year. Everyone should get a chance to try this one-of-a-kind stealthaction VR experience.”
“We've received great feedback from players who purchased Protocol Zero, but the controller requirement limited the number of people who could enjoy it,” said Jennie Sue, Sr. Business Development Manager, DeNA West. “Sidekick VR has done a terrific job making the game accessible to all Gear VR players by implementing touch pad controls. We can't wait for Google Cardboard and Google Daydream players to have a chance to try it, too.”
In Protocol Zero, players take on the role of a lone operative in a war-torn city tasked with covertly infiltrating enemy territories to overthrow the brutal regime. Night, X-ray and thermal vision allows players to take the perspective of the secret operative where they must remain hidden from sight, scanning dark rooms and taking down enemy targets with silent precision. Protocol Zero is a thrilling Virtual Reality mobile gameplay experience with maximized spatial interaction and stunning 3D graphics.
