More tactical VR shooting is heading your way very soon.
A-Tech Cybernetic developer XREAL Games today confirmed to UploadVR that its anticipated modern shooter, Zero Caliber, will launch via Steam Early Access on November 9th for Oculus Rift and HTC Vive. On October 25th, however, the studio will launch a free demo that’s available up until the Early Access release.
Expect the demo to include a brief taste of the full game, while the EA release will offer the game’s opening tutorials and the first three story missions, which can be played either on your own or with a friend. This, according to the developer, forms about half the campaign. More levels will be added to the game throughout Early Access. We don’t yet know when the full version will launch, although A-Tech is still in pre-releasing having first launched on Steam back in March 2017, so it could be a while yet.
We’ve been looking forward to Zero Caliber for a little while now; its trailers suggest it’ll offer a polished, realistic shooter experience that will give fans of both single and multiplayer games something to look forward to.
Meanwhile, over on Twitter, XREAL also confirmed that work on a PSVR version of the game had also begun.

That’s great news for sure, but does Zero Caliber have the chops to go toe-to-toe with Firewall Zero Hour? We’ll find out in a few months’ time. Don’t forget there’s Zero Killed on the way very soon too. Why do VR developers love the word ‘zero’?
