Team17 signs new VR game by former Burnout makers

Games label Team17 is making its first foray into virtual reality with a new title from Three Fields Entertainment.

Lethal VR is set for a November 8th launch. It is a virtual reality shooting gallery that Team17 says was built from the ground up for HTC Vive. The title is also coming to PlayStation VR.

Fiona Sperry and Alex Ward, former leads at Burnout studio Criterion, set up Three Fields in 2014. Its debut release was Dangerous Golf, which hit digital storefronts in May.

Virtual reality is a thrilling opportunity and we are really proud to partner with Three Fields Entertainment to announce Lethal VR, and we look forward to collectively exploring the opportunities of this new segment enriching our already diverse line up of games and partners” said Debbie Bestwick MBE, CEO of Team17.

Three Fields CEO Fiona Sperry added: We are really excited to join forces with Team17 and its passionate team to release Lethal VR worldwide. Both companies share the same passion for video games and we are excited to work together releasing Lethal VR. The arrival of VR inspired us to think about the stories we could tell and the immersive experiences we could create. Lethal VR puts the player in the shoes of an FBI recruit being assessed. The game is inspired by shooting sequences in films such as Point Break, Robocop and The Man with the Golden Gun.”

Lethal VR is the latest game signed from Team17 following the firm’s 16.5m investment deal with Lloyds Development Capital.
