When gamers want proper value for money one of the best genres to look at is MMORPG’s. In the field of virtual reality (VR) that slice of gaming pie is dominated by OrbusVR: Reborn which left early access a few months ago. Now, in a bid to attract more players into its universe developer AdAlternum has released a free demo.
This isn’t just any normal demo either, which usually show a singular level or small portion of the core experience. For OrbusVR: Reborn’s demo you actually get the entire title, putting players in the same world as everyone else. Naturally, there is a catch. The Demo allows users to play up to level 10 on all eight of the game’s classes for free, giving hours and hours worth of gameplay.
They can continue playing once level 10 has been achieved but their characters won’t gain any additional XP, halting progress and restricting access to higher-level areas and activities. The demo also stops players from using the Auction House and trading with other gamers.
The release of OrbusVR: Reborn’s demo was in part due to Steam’s policy allowing users to request a refund if a title has been played for less than two hours. AdAlternum didn’t feel gamers would get a true sense of OrbusVR: Reborn explains Riley Dutton, Director, in a statement: “OrbusVR offers so much content that two hours isn’t really enough time to fully immerse yourself in the world and decide if you like the game or not. We wanted a way for interested players to be able to really check out the game and explore all it has to offer, and the Demo provides for that.”
If you sink loads of hours into the demo and want to continue expanding your character all you need to do is purchase the title, unlocking OrbusVR: Reborn’s full features without having to start over.
AdAlternum Game Studios claims that OrbusVR: Reborn features more than 100+ hours of content, with dungeons to explore, raids and side quests to complete, as well as new in-game activities including dragon racing, critter capture, PVP battlegrounds, and public events.
The demo is only available through Steam, compatible with Oculus Rift/Rift S, HTC Vive and Valve Index. At the moment OrbusVR: Reborn is on sale via Steam with a 30% discount. It’s worth noting for Oculus Rift users that if you play the demo on Steam then decide to purchase the videogame on Oculus Store you can still continue from where you left off.
