It’s been a while since we’ve heard from Disruptive Games’ promising PSVR-exclusive shooter, Megalith. Turns out you’ll actually be able to play it from today.
The hero shooter, which looks a heck of a lot like a VR version of Blizzard’s Overwatch, is getting a free open beta today. Said beta is set to last “for the next couple of months” and will feature a weekly rotation of heroes (or Titans) for you to choose from. The game works much like a MOBA, tasking both teams with protecting their bases and destroying the enemy’s equivalent. We last got a look at it during E3 2018 and we thought it held a lot of promise. It looks like the beta will be US-only for now (the blog post announcing it only appears on the US PlayStation site).
You’ll be able to choose from two of the five heroes every week, whilst other players will have a different selection to ensure matches are varied. Characters include the icy Tundra, a Hunter class that gives us Bloodborne vibes, a divine warrior named Aurora, a monster named Taur and an ancient sentinel named Cipher. Each comes with its own abilities that must be used in tandem with the rest of your team to pave the way to victory.
However, if you pre-order the game during the beta you’ll be given immediate access to each hero at your choosing (so you’re essentially buying the game straight up). You’ll also be given an avatar pack for your PlayStation profile, exclusive skins for these five heroes upon full launch, and a DLC hero when the game launches. The full game launches on January 6th.
