If you happened to have missed it, last weekend Force Field VR held an open beta for its upcoming strategy title Landfall for Oculus Rift. It seems as if the studio learnt a lot from the release, so much so that its launching a second beta for this weekend.
Landfall has been made available to download again through Oculus Store for everyone to engage in further twin-stick shooter action. This time though the experience will have been slightly changed as Force Field has added several improvements.
Taking to Reddit the studio revealed its now added a second map Wide Horizon to the beta, putting players in a lush green valley to fight it out. Also addressed were issues relating to players having problems joining matches, saying: “Our big takeaway from the weekend was that matchmaking still caused problems for some players. For the past few days we’ve been working on improving the system and we think that we’ve been able to address the biggest issues.”
Other additions for this weekend’s beta are:
- Added intro cinematic.
- Decreased volume of environment and aircraft in the main menu.
- Decreased loading times.
- Tweaked Chillbone cluster rockets damage
- Reduced Roaster special ability damage for both Strider and Pilot
- Reduced Heavy Strider weapon damage
The beta is free to download and play, if you want to read more about Landfall prior to playing it checkout VRFocus‘ preview, describing it as “an intensely engaging experience.”
