For those that like their virtual reality (VR) titles full of mythical creatures and elemental spellcasting Carbon Studio will soon be releasing its next immersive title, The Wizards. Today, the studio has announced a Steam Early Access launch date, a price, as well as new screenshots.
If you’ve not been following VRFocus’ coverage of The Wizards since its announcement earlier this year, the videogame puts players into the shoes of a young sorcerer who must defend the realm from legions of rampaging monsters. Solely single-player, the title allows a player to cast all sorts of elemental spells, from lightning bolts to fireballs, alongside defensive spells like a shield, to attack and protect themselves from orcs and goblins.
The early access release will take place on 28th July 2017. This initial launch will feature a story mode with two regions divided into stages to play through loads of additional locations. Players will be able to master six spells, each of which can be upgraded, plus there are Fate Cards allowing the rules to be modified to achieve more points. Additionally, there going to be an online leaderboard for the best players.
During the planned early access period – which should last about 5-6 months – Carbon Studio will add new regions with two story chapters, an Arcade Mode for endless arena battles, Master Enhancements to upgrade spells even further and new Fate Cards.
Supporting Oculus Rift with Touch and HTC Vive, The Wizards will have a launch price of $24.99 USD.
