Almost two years ago Onward hit Steam and set the VR world on fire. Dante Buckley, a then-one-man-development studio that taught himself everything he knows after dropping out of college, has successfully built a team and company around his breakout success. In its wake, Onward has spawned other VR shooters like Pavlov and Stand Out, as well as showed the industry that the majority of VR gamers can handle smooth locomotion just fine.
Onward is a hardcore military simulation VR FPS that doesn’t hold back any punches. This weekend it’s free on Steam for anyone to download and play, so we figured this was a great chance to dive into the game. We haven’t played in months so we’re very rusty and there’s a lot of new stuff we haven’t seen yet. Wish us luck! If you decide to play as well, make sure and read our Field Guide of tips.
We’ll be livestreaming Onward on PC today using an Oculus Rift with Touch starting very soon as of the time this is being published (which means we’ll start at approximately 2:30PM PT) and aim to last for about an hour or so. We’ll be livestreaming directly to the UploadVR Facebook page. You can see the full stream embedded right here down below once it’s up:
Let us know which games you want us to livestream next and what you want to see us do, specifically, in Onward or other VR games. Comment with feedback down below!
