Could High Voltage Software be Planning a Gear VR Version of Dragon Front?
On Friday last week VRFocus reported on Oculus VR and High Voltage Software announcing a collectible card game (CCG) built for virtual reality (VR) called Dragon Front. The videogame is an exclusive for the Oculus Rift head-mounted display (HMD), but a recent listing of the title on the developers website initially indicated a possible Samsung Gear VR version as well
Spotted by eagle eyed Reddit users, the description read as follows: “Available only in virtual reality on Oculus Rift and GearVR, Dragon Front is an immersive collectible card game battler running at 90 frames per second (60 fps on GearVR) with a full 360-degree stereoscopic view. Construct your deck and challenge online opponents. The entire 4×4 grid battlefield is alive with mobile squads, rampaging giants, intimidating war machines, soaring projectiles, and fire-breathing bombing runs. Mobilize atop your stronghold and launch your forces across the frontlines — history is about to won!”
This has now been amended on High Voltages website, deleting the sections which list the Gear VR. Now it could have been a typing error, but that fact that the mobile HMD was mentioned twice really negates that idea. It’s more possible that a separate version is being worked on but the studio isn’t yet ready to make an announcement regarding it. This is all conjecture at this point until High Voltage or Oculus VR confirm or deny the rumour.
Dragon Front is a fantasy strategic card game where players create a deck of 30 cards before battling on a 4 x 4 grid in both single and multiplayer matches. Players will be able to choose a faction out of a reported four, each with its own unique card attributes, gameplay mechanics, and strategies. The title will feature 280 characters, 80 different encampments, and more than 100 spells for players to battle with.
VRFocus will continue its coverage of Dragon Front, reporting back with any further updates to the title.
