This past weekend Gunfire Games held an open beta weekend for its upcoming first-person shooter (FPS) From Other Suns for Oculus Rift – that beta is still going until 12:00pm PST today. Those who’ve played the title and are looking forward to its release will be pleased to know that a launch date has now been announced and pre-orders are now live.
From Other Suns will be released on Tuesday, 14th November for $39.99 USD. If you want to grab some money off then pre-ordering the title will save you $5.
Featuring both single-player and multiplayer modes, From Other Suns puts you in a sci-fi universe where you’ll come face to face with ruthless pirates, lethal robots, and deadly aliens across procedurally generated environments. You’ll be able to upgrade your ship, stockpile weapons, and more whilst exploring the galaxy.
Revealing a little more about the final version of the videogame, Gunfire Games’ Design Director John Pearl said in a statement: “As you progress through the game, you’ll encounter over a dozen unique weapon types, each with hundreds of possible variations.To us, this is a really an exciting feature, since it lets players really customize the way they play.”
So you might find the Laser Scattershot for example, which lets you get up close and personal with your enemies, or how about the Plasma Launcher for dispatching clusters of hostiles from afar. “No matter the type of player you are,” Pearl explains, “there’s a gun for your play style!”
