PlayStation and the Air Force came together to launch the service’s first virtual reality free fall gaming experience, “Air Force Special Ops Nightfall.”
Once they put on the virtual reality headset, gamers can get a tangible feel for being a special ops airman. The game allows users to simulate movements that these airmen experience after jumping from a C-130.
The game includes High Altitude Low Opening free fall, parachute control and night landing. Users can choose from four career fields: combat control, pararescue, special operations weather and tactical air control party. After choosing a career field for the mission, the user is taken to “jump school” and learns how to use the controls. The game’s scenarios become more difficult as the player gets more comfortable with how the game works.
