Fearmaster Controller details emerge from the undergrowth
Tears for Fearmaster.
Activation has released further details for its upcoming Top Shot Fearmaster peripheral, bundled in with the upcoming Cabela’s Dangerous Hunts 2013.
The Fearmaster utilises heartbeat sensors in the grips and an infrared camera in the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions, detecting the heart rate and hand stability of the gamer and reflecting it accordingly in game.
If your heartrate is high and your hand unsteady, the screen will become blurred and aiming more difficult, in an attempt at providing a more authentic hunting experience. Question is wether a game like Cabela’s Dangerous Hunts 2013 can generate enough fear factor to penetrate the steely hides of gamers to make the peripheral worth anybody’s time.
Top Shot Fearmaster on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation3 on Oct. 23 for $79.99. The game will also be available for the Wii with the new Top Shot peripheral for $59.99.
