Warzone VR from Sinn Studio (the same developers as VR games Wraith and The Perfect Sniper) is set to hit Steam Early Access for Rift, Vive, and Windows VR this week on January 25th. Billed as a large-scale VR FPS, similar to War Dust, there is a heavy focus on team-based gameplay and squad tactics.
Originally slated for a Fall 2018 release the PC edition was moved back a bit to just now releasing in Early Access this week. A PSVR version is still planned, but details on that are light at the moment.
You can watch the new launch trailer for Early Access right here:
Visually it reminds me a bit of Onward and is certainly far less polished than Contractors, which may very well be the best looking VR shooter we’ve seen to date from a pure graphical fidelity perspective. One aspect of Warzone that particularly stands out in the footage is the prevalence of vehicles. You can see in the latest trailer that all passengers actually see themselves inside a fully-modeled interior of the vehicle while driving instead of zooming the camera perspective out like War Dust does with its tanks.
Maps will reportedly range in size from 2x2km up to 4x4km, which is pretty large. With a focus on objective-based game modes there probably won’t be a ton of pure team deathmatch going on.
The Steam page mentions other features like an official progression system, character customization elements, an in-game shop for loadouts, and plans for free DLC down the line. Let us know what you think of the game so far down in the comments below!
