Dragon Front Gets Touch Support And New Faction Next Week

High Voltage Software’s Dragon Front moved from Beta into a full release last November, but that doesn’t mean new content isn’t on the way.

The developer recently confirmed that its VR card battler will be getting a new update next week with two very big additions. The first is a new faction, Delirium, which offers a new set of cards and units to play with. This army is made up of demonic creatures that will use their powers to confuse players, shifting units across the map. High Voltage has been sharing some of the new soldiers you’ll encounter over on Twitter, including the ghost-like Starling Watcher, and the disturbing Floating Star-Maws.

It’s the second new faction to be added to the game, the other being the Essence faction, which is essentially the polar opposite of Delirium, with angel-like units from the heavens.

Arguably more exciting, however, is the inclusion of new Oculus Touch controls in next week’s update. Players have long thought about what position-tracked controls could do for the game, but soon they’ll be able to bring their hands into the experience and pick up cards they want to play. We went hands-on with Touch support at GDC last week and, while inessential, found it to be a fun new way to interact with the game.

Dragon Front is also playable on Gear VR, and supports cross-play between the two platforms. Obviously Gear doesn’t support Touch, but perhaps it could one day support the new controller that’s coming to the platform.

Look for the update to hit in a little under a week from now on March 14th.
