At the Game Developers Conference (GDC) 2017 last week, developer High Voltage showcased its forthcoming update for card battler Dragon Front. Released last October for Oculus Rift, the new update will add Oculus Touch support for Dragon Front alongside a new faction, and is scheduled to arrive next week.
The studio has been teasing what to expect with a series of tweets to eager fans. In addition to more intuitive gameplay with Touch, the faction being included is called Delirium. With it players will gain access to some monstrous new cards, with units like the Starling Watcher, Floating Star-maw and the War Stitcher to command, as well as spells including Unseen Hands and Shifting Worlds.
These add a range of combat options with Starling Watcher offering to soak up damage whilst dishing out four mana to players. While Floating Star-maw is a flying class, and War Stitcher is a mid level fighter with equal attack and defence.
Delirium adds to Dragon Front’s growing roster of factions with Scales, Thorns, Strife, Eclipse and Silence all having launched in quick succession in the last few months.
Dragon Front will be one of the few titles that support Touch to offer cross-platform play with Samsung Gear VR. Touch news has dominated the Oculus platform since its launch in December 2016. The biggest news was last week when Oculus announced a new pricing bundle for the headset and controllers, as well as a price drop for Touch itself.
VRFocus will continue its coverage of High Voltage and Dragon Front, reporting back with the latest updates.
