Zero Caliber is one of the most promising VR shooters on the horizon. After we were mostly let down by Seeking Dawn recently and Firewall: Zero Hour only coming to PSVR, we set our sights on X-Real’s upcoming mixture of intense action and military realism to scratch that new shooter itch.
In Zero Caliber the developers have really gotten quite ambitious. Their previous game, A-Tech Cybernetic, which is still in development, caught us by surprise with its surprising polish, so we hope that attention to detail can carry over into Zero Caliber. This game is billed as a full-on VR shooter with a deeper than average campaign that’s fully playable in co-op. A bit like a modern military take on Farpoint with full campaign co-op multiplayer support.
Here’s some fresh gameplay footage:
Also this week the developers revealed on Steam that they’re currently taking sign ups for Alpha testers. It’s tentatively slated for August 10th and you can sign up right here on Discord. After that testing phase, a free, public demo for Zero Caliber will be released presumably on the game’s Steam page.
We’re excited about this one, but for now we’ll remain just cautiously optimistic. The action in the trailer looks great, but it remains to be seen just how much of that happens during actual gameplay. If you’re curious as well, head over to the Discord and throw your name into the Alpha tester hat.
Let us know what you think of the game so far down in the comments below!
