Originally released last summer as a PlayStation VR exclusive, today, virtual reality (VR) developer Tribetoy has announced that Bow to Blood will be getting a massive update in April. The update will not only greatly expand platform support, but it’ll also include new features for the PlayStation VR version.
Called Bow to Blood: Last Captain Standing, the update increases its platform support by adding Xbox One, Switch, PC, and PlayStation 4 (non-VR) to the mix. On top of that, the PC release also includes support for Oculus Rift and HTC Vive.
When it comes to additional PlayStation VR content Tribetoy will be adding an all-new Hard Difficulty setting, more enemy ships, more events, improved procedural engine, and improved art making airship destruction even better looking.
“Bow to Blood is truly unlike anything out there, with its mix of naval combat, airship management, and diplomacy,” said Tribetoy Co-Founder and Director of Design, Matthew Hoesterey in a statement. “We’re thrilled that a whole new audience will get to discover it in this multiplatform release next month.”
Additionally, Bow to Blood: Last Captain Standing will also included a Ready Player One inspired community event wherein the first player to uncover a secret treasure will be immortalized forever in the videogame.
The experience itself is a single-player action-strategy roguelike which puts you in charge of a flying airship in a multi-stage reality TV show. You’ll need to manage a ragtag crew to keep the vessel afloat, fend off incoming attackers, gather resources, and search for treasure. One of the key factors in the videogame is forging temporary alliances, teaming up with NPCs to takeout the most dominant threats.
When VRFocus reviewed Bow to Blood originally, we gave it a commendable 4-stars, saying: “Bow to Blood is a fine, fun title with some minor niggles. The combat is good, though somewhat tricky to get used to, but the alliance system offers something interesting and unique that elevates the title to a higher level.”
Bow to Blood: Last Captain Standing will be available at some point in April. If you already own the PlayStation VR version of the title then it’ll be a free update. For any further Bow to Blood announcements in the future, keep reading VRFocus.
