Skyworld, despite its flaws, at least does something a bit different in the VR gaming space. Instead of focusing on blood, gore, and guns (like Vertigo’s other game, Arizona Sunshine, and the rest of the VR market) Skyworld takes a decidedly whimsical approach in delivering an approachable RTS-lite experience.
For fans of the genre that haven’t had a chance to check it out yet or want something to shake up their Brass Tactics sessions, you can play Skyworld totally for free this weekend on both Steam and the Oculus Home store. That means Rift, Vive, and Windows VR all get free access.
The free period is already active right now and lasts until Sunday, May 20th, at 1PM PT. If you like it enough, you can purchase it for 50% off during this period to retain access. That sale ends on May 21st.
Additionally, the newly released Lost Worlds DLC (shown above in the trailer) is included as well, which adds two new worlds to the game to further expand its content.
