Exploration Title FRONTIERS Greenlit on Steam

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.

Fronters_1FRONTIERS 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.
