Strap on your wrist jets and load up your weapons because Echo Combat, the upcoming first-person zero-gravity VR shooter from Lone Echo and Echo Arena developers, Ready at Dawn, is heading back into Open Beta. The Open Beta 4 period is now live starting today and lasts until Sunday, September 9th, at 9AM PT with patch 14.0, bringing with it lots of bug fixes, party support, and balance changes.
More details in the trailer:
One of the featured changes with this most recent patch that’s very welcomed is the addition of new cover points throughout the map. Since Echo Combat only has a single map for its one game mode getting the balance just right is crucial.
The main areas of focus for the rest of the new patch focus on the Arc Mine gadget, 2D spectator mode fixes, nerfing the Barrier Tac-Mod, spawn timer adjustments, and various other tweaks.
We’ve written detailed impressions of Echo Combat, compared it to the similar upcoming VR shooter from Ubisoft Space Junkies side-by-side, and livestreamed the Rift-exclusive on not one, but two occasions already.
Let us know what you think of Echo Combat if you’ve had the chance to jump in already and maybe we’ll see you out there on the battlefield!
