We’re still waiting for Ace Combat 7 to fly onto our PSVR headsets, but the Oculus Rift, HTC Vive and Windows VR headsets are getting a promising contender this month.
Worlds at War from developer Muddy Pixel is releasing in Early Access later on in February, and it looks like a lot of fun. In the game, you pilot aircraft, helicopters and boats, leading them into battle against enormous alien spacecraft in horde-style gameplay. Set in the aftermath of the invasion of Earth, you’ll sit in the cockpit of each vehicle and weave through the gunfire and explosions as you fend off the enemy.

When it launches in pre-release this month the game will feature three scenarios and each vehicle type, though more are planned for launch throughout the Early Access phase which is expected to last for a few months. The game’s also due to a tune-up in the visuals department (though it looks pretty sharp as is).
Right now the experience is single-player-only and played with a controller or mouse and keyboard. It’s inspired by classic arcade games and reminds us just a bit of the Rage Software classic, Incoming, which is no bad thing.
