Arizona Sunshine developer Vertigo Game’s other VR title, Skyworld, is finally making the jump to Sony’s PSVR headset.
Vertigo announced the news today, confirming the game would arrive in early 2019. The game is a mix of both turn-based and real-time strategy in which players control armies and build bases, preparing to head into battle and claim victory over the enemy. It offers 1v1 online multiplayer for friends to prove their strategic supremacy in.
You can check out the reveal trailer below. Vertigo hasn’t confirmed if there will be any new additions to the PSVR version just yet.
Skyworld was originally introduced around the reveal of the HTC Vive back in 2015, but didn’t end up releasing until about a year after its ever-popular zombie shooter. Despite giving Arizona Sunshine our 2016 game of the year, though, we felt like Skyworld was a step backward for Vertigo.
“Skyworld has some good ideas, but ultimately its full potential is unrealized,” we wrote in our review. “I applaud Vertigo for trying something new, but when it comes down to it, VR doesn’t really enhance a board game and simple strategy experience like this, and it often became more tedious and convoluted than fun.”
We’ll find out if the PSVR version fares any better next year.
