Earlier this year developer Vanimals Games announced plans to bring its successful smartphone franchise, Eternity Warriors, to virtual reality (VR). The title passed the Steam Greenlight process before that service was closed, and is now anticipating an Early Access release in September 2017.
Eternity Warriors VR is an action-adventure title where players can take on the role of one of three hero classes, Warrior, Hunter or Gunner to fight against hordes of devilish monsters. There are plans for both single player and multiplayer modes in the Early Access version, with multiplayer co-op being a planned feature.
Vanimals Games have said that the title is designed with fast-paced arcade-style combat in mind, with short, mission-based sessions so users can play in short bursts to fit in around their schedule. The developers have also promised that characters and monsters from the mobile titles will be making appearances, which is sure to please fans of the previous smartphone Eternity Warriors titles.
The developers are hoping to work with the community to gather feedback on how best to improve the videogame. There are already plans to add extra hero classes, multiplayer modes and challenges modes to the full release. Players who purchase the Early Access version will be upgraded to the full release version for no extra cost.
Eternity Warriors VR is expected to be released into Steam Early Access for HTC Vive and Oculus Rift some time in September 2017. A price point and precise release date has not yet been confirmed. Further information and updates can be found on the Steam store page.
