Skyworld Receives Huge Update: Gameplay Changes, Bug Fixes & Localisation

Vertigo Games launched its latest virtual reality (VR) exclusive title, Skyworld, earlier this month. Available now for Oculus Rift, HTC Vive and Windows Mixed Reality head-mounted displays (HMDs), Skyworld has today received a new update covering several areas including gameplay changes and localisation.

Skyworld screenshotSkyworld is a turn-based strategy videogame in which the gameplay unfolds across two distinct phases. First is the kingdom development, in which the player must expand their lands, gather resources and build their army. Second comes the battles, where players must go head-to-head in real-time, deploying their units on a battlefield with the aim of taking out the enemy general, taking the land from beneath them in the development phase.

The patch is available to download now for all editions of Skyworld, with the full patch notes following below courtesy of Vertigo Games. VRFocus will keep you updated with all the latest details on this and other VR titles from Vertigo Games.
