Farpoint is a riveting VR space adventure set on a hostile alien planet.
On a mission to pick up scientists studying an anomaly near Jupiter, a sudden rupture nearby sends you and their station crashing onto an unknown alien world. Separated from your colleagues, you must use holographic logs scattered throughout the landscape to reunite with the scientists and escape the planet. Explore and discover the secrets of the planet, blasting your way through hordes of indigenous and alien life as you keep moving to survive.
Impulse Gear's debut title Farpoint released in the Spring of 2017 to the delight of many PlayStation VR enthusiasts. We partnered with Sony in the development of the groundbreaking Aim controller. We've supported the title with free DLC releases — the Cryo Pack, and the recently announced Versus Expansion Pack — which bring new content and features requested by the community.
