In May BigBox VR announced that its popular virtual reality (VR) multiplayer for HTC Vive and Oculus Rift, Smashbox Arena, would be coming to PlayStation VR this summer. Today, the studio has announced the launch date, Tuesday 25th July.
Smashbox Arena is a competitive, multiplayer experience of team vs team shootout battles. While its core mode is the multiplayer, the title also features a single-player story mode, with the solo option including three difficulty levels to work through, that’ll unlock further customisation options for characters. There are six power-ups to master, such as the Giant Boulders, Sniperballs and Heat Seeking Missiles.
The multiplayer allows friends to join up for a party match or head into the wide world to face opponents from across the globe. If there aren’t enough real players to make up a team, AI characters will join to make up the numbers.
While the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive versions of Smashbox Arena feature cross-platform gameplay, the PlayStation VR version won’t.
VRFocus will continue its coverage of Smashbox Arena, reporting back with the latest updates.
