Military simulation software specialist Naviworks has announced the upcoming arrival of its latest project, a first-person shooter (FPS) with optional virtual reality (VR) support for Oculus Rift and HTC Vive called Battle X: Birth of the Alliance. The single-player campaign features a story from BioShock, Tomb Raider, Far Cry 2, and Gears of War writer Susan O’Connor, involving corporate espionage as an elite team of special forces soldiers head out on a mission to stop a rogue biotech scientist from enslaving the planet with a dangerous pathogen.
