Fans of strategy and virtual reality (VR) will have heard of Skyworld, a strategy game that combines turn-based and real-time strategy together to test your multi-tasking and logic. Since showcasing the game at Gamescom, Vertigo Games have added a single-player campaign to Skyworld in order to help players understand the game.
VRFocus spoke to Trevor Blom, the lead programmer from Vertigo Games about the new campaign they’ve added, units you’ll be able to play and the various maps that will be available on the final release. Trevor Blom explains that, “You manage your resources to create your units for the battle mode. So it’s a strategy game with elements from both turn-based and real-time strategy and I think that makes it really unique. Also in combination with VR, it just makes it a strategy game that you can’t play on another platform.” Blom continues to explain that the campaign teaches you how to play the game with various AI opponents and maps.
Skyworld will be shipping with some form of in-game streaming with external cameras for spectator mode upon release. You can play Skyworld on the HTC Vive, Oculus Rift and Windows Mixed Reality (MR) headsets this fall and will be cross-platform.
