A way to play ultimate during a pandemic.
November 13, 2020 by Charlie Eisenhood in News with 0 comments
Players control small characters that can run, jump, sprint, layout, and fire off a variety of throws in 3v3, 4v4, and 5v5 formats. The controls are easy to pick up — WASD for moving, mouse for camera control, shift to sprint, and spacebar to layout (with different mouse clicks and movements for different throw types and angles). There are stamina meters and stall counts, though points begin without a pull.
The game was created by Vadim Slyusarev, an Associate Principal Engine Programmer at Rockstar Games, the developer of Red Dead Redemption and Grand Theft Auto. We’ve reached out to Slyusarev to hear more about his new game.
Ultimate may be available in other video game formats in the future. Currently, the AUDL is working with a developer on the early stages of a console-based ultimate game.
