The long wait for the full launch of Ready at Dawn’s Echo Combat is nearly at an end.
During its Connect developer conference, Oculus today announced that the highly-anticipated expansion to Echo VR would be arriving on November 15th following multiple beta testing periods that began this summer. Echo Combat, which complements the existing Echo Arena, was first announced at Oculus Connect 4 last year.
The game builds upon the zero gravity traversal that was established in both Arena and Ready at Dawn’s single-player experience, Lone Echo. As the name suggests, though, this one ups the action by having players gun each other down. It’s unlike anything else you’ve played in VR (except for Downward Spiral) and it’s thoroughly addictive.
Echo Combat will launch exclusively on the Oculus Rift. We went hands-on with the game just ahead of OC5, so look for our latest impressions soon.
