Hubris is a new VR shooter that’s sure to catch your eye, and it’s coming later this year.
Developed by Belgium-based Cyborn, Hubris is due to launch its first episode in Q4 2021 with support for all PC VR headsets on SteamVR and a PSVR version confirmed too. In the game, you play as a member of a galaxy-wide agency knowns as the Order-Of-Objectivity. You’re tasked with locating a missing agent on an alien planet. Check out the trailer below.
We don’t have too much to go on with Hubris right now, but it’s hard to deny that the trailer’s visuals are a cut above a lot of others. There’s a gorgeous lakeside environment in which players will explore caverns and clamber over rocks. The game’s developed with Unreal Engine.
Of course, great visuals only play one part in the overall experience, and we have no idea how Hubris will actually play. The shooting mechanics do at least look solid, with dual-wielding weapons and a range of enemy types. Plus, Cyborn is promising other mechanics like crafting weapons and drivable vehicles.
A Quest version of Hubris hasn’t been explicitly announced, by Cyborn says the game will come to “all major VR headsets”, so it could well be on the cards. The Steam page reveals the game will be an episodic experience, but there’s no timeline for when other instalments might arrive and it’s not clear if the trailer is showing everything in the first episode of stretching beyond that. Will you be checking out Hubris later this year? Let us know in the comments below!
