Earlier this year, developer Fantahorn Studio worked with HTC Vive’s home-grown studio to produce Front Defense, and now the two have partnered again to work on a sequel, titled Front Defense: Heroes. New screenshots show further details of what players can expect.
The first Front Defense was, at its core, a wave shooter that featured authentic historical weaponry as well as some impressive graphics and a heavy focus on realism as players take on the role of a soldier in the Allied forces fighting against the Nazi war machine. While movement was possible, moving from cover to cover, picking up weapons and ammo in order to take advantage of the offered room-scale experience.
Front Defense: Heroes aims to build on the experience by creating a more expansive multiplayer videogame. As before, the experience will be room-scale, offering 5 vs 5 multiplayer, with multiple maps to play on and the option to play as the Allies or the Axis powers. There will be multiple game modes available, including Capture the Flag, Death Match and Defense Mission mode.
Responding to recent discussions regarding locomotion in VR, Fantahorn Studios have created a new locomotion system called V-Move, though full details of exaclty how this will work have not yet been revealed.
Front Defense: Heroes is expected to be released on Steam and Viveport in early December, with a launch price of $4.99 (USD).
The screenshots are are available to view below.
