High Voltage Software has today confirmed that the highly anticipated Oculus Rift exclusive videogame, Damaged Core, has achieved Gold status and will be playable at PAX West 2016, 2nd – 5th September 2016, in the form of the ‘release candidate’. In addition, the studio will also be demonstrating a new version of the turn-based virtual reality (VR) card battling videogame, Dragon Front.
Damaged Core is a first-person shooter (FPS) VR videogame which was first showcased at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3), in June last year. Since then the videogame has undergone a radical change, bringing a brand new version to the Game Developers Conference (GDC), San Francisco, last March. Damaged Core is expected to be made available exclusively for Oculus Rift in the near future.
Dragon Front made its debut at GDC 2016, after High Voltage Software teased VRFocus about the reveal of a ‘second big VR project’. The videogame was very warmly received at the event and has since been confirmed as a free-to-play title. No specific release date has been announced for Dragon Front, though a beta testing phase is expected to launch prior to the end of 2016.
Set to be held behind-closed-doors, both Damaged Core and Dragon Front are available for members of the press to get hands-on with. Oculus VR, publisher of both titles, will also have a public booth at PAX West 2016, though it’s not yet been confirmed which titles will be offered as playable to general attendees. VRFocus will keep you updated with all the latest details on Damaged Core and Dragon Front, as well as other forthcoming VR titles from High Voltage Software.
