Upcoming exploration and survival title FRONTIERS has successfully passed its Steam Greenlight campaign. The first-person experience had only launched its Steam page at the end of March 2014 and has been approved for sale on Valve’s digital storefront in just a matter of days. The title, which is developed by Lars Simkins, supports virtual reality (VR) with the Oculus Rift headset.
FRONTIERS is inspired by the likes of other open world fantasy titles such as The Elder Scrolls II: Daggerfall. It aims to combine the feel of these kinds of RPGs with the simplicity of point-and-click adventure titles, featuring a range of different expansive environments. It supports 4-player co-op so people can explore together, and also mixes Minecraft-style crafting with environment-based survival.
The experience launched a successful Kickstarter campaign in 2013, raising $157,381 USD to fund the title. It’s aiming to release in the second quarter of 2014, meaning it should be here in a maximum of three month’s time. VRFocus will continue to follow FRONTIERS‘ progress and report back with all the latest.
