Get ready to set sail; Survios’ next VR game, Battlewake, launches very soon.
The ship battling multiplayer game hits on September 10. That’s a date for the PSVR and PC VR versions. The promised Oculus Quest version of the game will be coming later this year. The news was announced just ahead of Gamescom this week, where the game will be on display for attendees.
Battlewake gives you full control of a massive pirate ship. Across single-player and multiplayer modes you battle it out with rivals. The game will feature a full campaign mode with 20 levels that can be played either solo or with a friend. After that, there’s multiplayer modes like PvP and Warfare.
Along the way you’ll level up your character and be able to upgrade your ship. The game features thirteen different types of weapons you can fit to your war machine.
Survios has been running a beta for the game over the past few weeks. We’ve been hands-on with the game ourselves and found a lot to like in its explosive action. Whether or not that will make for a great full package remains to be seen but we’ve got our fingers crossed.
Elsewhere the developer is currently working on a Walking Dead VR game we’re also hoping will arrive soon. It’s a busy time at the developer, but when isn’t it? Last year we gave the studio our Developer Of The Year award based on its massive output and they don’t seem to be slowing down.
