Levity Play has recently been pushing the agenda for the official debut of Skyfront VR hard. A handful of closed beta testing phases has now culminated in the upcoming launch of a Steam Early Access edition of the videogame, opening the title up to all HTC Vive and Oculus Rift owners.
Designed specifically for virtual reality (VR), Skyfront VR is a multiplayer first-person shooter (FPS) set in an idyllic future. The Steam Early Access edition of the videogame will launch with just one map and two gameplay modes, deathmatch and team deathmatch, but Levity Play promise to expand on this over time. By the time the official launch edition is realised, Levity Play suggest the videogame will include five gameplay modes including Single Deathmatch, 3v3 Elimination and Capture The Flag, and five or six maps in different geographical settings.
The official description of the videogame’s setting, from developer Levity Play, is as follows: “2300 AD. Our planet was embroiled in the battle to end all battles – The Final War. Cities disappeared, nations perished and our planet was scarred almost beyond recognition. Four hundred years later, in AD 2700, the humankind is thriving again; the wars have been left behind, most of the planet has been rebuilt and technology has achieved ultimate synergy with nature and Laws of Physics. To preserve the memory of our violent past, a symbolic competition called the Skyfront Tournament was created.”
In response to the recent beta testing phases Levity Play has run for Skyfront VR, Ivar Jaanus offered the following on the official devblog for the videogame: “We can’t stress enough how valuable the community was, by providing us with instant and detailed feedback. It was also really cool to see the new ways in which players engaged with the game. We were aware of some of the bugs in the game and with your cooperation, we were able to narrow down the issues we should tackle firsthand. Most of those bugs will be eliminated in time for Early Access.”
Skyfront VR is set to debut on Steam Early Access, compatible with both HTC Vive and Oculus Rift, on 10th November 2017. You can find out more information on the videogame’s official Steam page and VRFocus will keep you updated with all the latest details from Levity Play.
