Skyfront VR Flying Out Of Early Access In December
The team at Levity Games have confirmed that Skyfront VR is leaving Early Access next month. The game launched in Early Access back in November 2017, in the same month we offered a hands-on with the game.
Skyfront VR is a multiplayer zero-gravity first-person shooter and will be leaving launching on Steam, Viveport and for the first time, Oculus store on 20 December 2018. As well as the launch date we got a brand new trailer featuring all the cool new content the game’s full version brings to the player (shown below).
Members of the team have spoken about the game, and what we can expect as it leaves early access.
Kaaren Kaer, Game Lead at Skyfront VR, has explained what the team hope to deliver with the game;
“It’s been an intense and exhilarating year! Being in Early Access has taught us so much about our players and what people expect from VR. For the most part that is quality content and more than just an hour or few of fun in the game. We really think Skyfront can deliver that!”
The full game also introduces a progression system and customisation options – two huge additions that will challenge the player in a whole new way!.
Furthermore, the game’s launch on Oculus store opens Skyfront up to a vast new market that currently boasts the biggest PC VR player base. Kaaren Kaer added;
“Cross-platform gameplay means that we will be merging three amazing communities [Viveport, Steam, Oculus store], giving the players access to this great new content. Steam players will also have free hands in creating the arenas they’ve always dreamed of with the help of Steam Workshop. As far as future plans go, we intend to keep adding new content – whether that be more arenas, customisation options or weapons and abilities – every four months or so,”
The game will include four amazing zero-gravity arenas, all inspired by man-made architecture and tech. Olga Lihota, Concept Artist at Skyfront VR, explained;
“Our arenas tell the story of a world that has recovered from devastation – a world, where war has been replaced by tournaments of strength and skill,”
I also got the chance to speak to Sandra Müür about the game at EGX this year, you can watch our interview here.
Expect more content and coverage to come to The VR Realm as the game leaves Early Access next month.
