Ratloop Games’ Vroom Kaboom is a weird one. It’s a vehicular card-battling game in which two players nominate different war machines to gradually wear down their opponent’s defenses… with VR support. Not something you hear every day, is it? The latest update for the game does introduce some more familiar elements, though.
Namely, the game now has a cockpit view option. Previously Vroom Kaboom could only be played from a third-person perspective, giving you an entire view of the battlefield. For players that want a more immersive experience, though, you can now hop into the driver’s seat either in or out of VR. This was one of the biggest requests we saw following the game’s launch last month so it’s great to see the developers taking note of what the community wants.

Meanwhile, there’s a handful of other improvements to the game. Firstly there’s a better tutorial, which is designed to streamline information to get new players into games as soon as possible. There’s also a new option to steer vehicles with your keyboard or mouse and there have been adjustments made to enemy AI so that you can have better solo-matches (though the game is largely intended to be played in multiplayer).
Vroom Kaboom is available now on PC and PS4 with optional support for the Rift, Vive and PSVR headsets. It’s a free-to-play game in which you can purchase more vehicles, or just pick up the deluxe edition from the go for a more complete experience.
