If you have ever wanted to command armies of knights as you assault a castle’s walls, or face other warriors in contests of jousting, archery and sword, then upcoming virtual reality (VR) strategy title Wonfourn may be the videogame you have been looking for.
Wonfourn is an adventure strategy hybrid that puts the player in the role of a firstborn child of a great family who must prove themselves worthy by taking part in an epic quest. Players have over 30 island nations to explore, each containing its own missions and objectives. Players can learn sword-fighting, archery and jousting as well as take part in trading and commerce, seeking out new trade routes for more profit, and beating back bandits and pirates along the way.
Players can take control of a battleship to sail the seas, overseeing the battle from the ship’s deck, with VR offering the immersive experience of feeling the deck move beneath you as the cannons roar. Players can use loot gathered from battles to invest in new weaponry and armour, or use the Blacksmiths Forge to craft it yourself.
The title is planned for release on Steam sometime in November 2017 for Oculus Rift and HTC Vive. Oculus Rift users will need the Touch controllers, as the title uses tracked motion controllers. A price point has not yet been established
Further information and updates can be found on the Steam page. An announcement trailer is also available to view below.
VRFocus will continue to bring you updates on Wonfourn and other Steam VR titles as it becomes available.
