For those who love sword fighting in virtual reality (VR) Sword of Gargantua by Japanese developer Yomuneco Inc. aims to provide one of the most realistic experiences across a wide variety of headsets. Today, the studio has revealed its plans for future updates throughout 2020, with plenty of new content scheduled to arrive.
Last month Yomuneco Inc. announced PlayStation VR support would be coming this spring but it does have more in store this season. An alpha Mod Mode using the Mod.io platform will be rolled out for PC-based players, allowing them to modify in-game parameters, such as speed and strength, as well as create custom waves to alter the challenges. This feature will also come to Oculus Quest in the future.
Additionally, this spring will see a social area called the Lounge arrive so that up to 10 warriors can hangout after a long day of killing giants.
That will be followed in the summer by the Duels of Gargantua beta test, a PvP mode where players can enter an arena to fights other human opponents. The Mod Mode customization will be expanded as well, enabling players to import fan-made weapon and character models and utilize them in epic battles against the Gargantua. These weapons and models can only be utilised in this particular mode.
Onto the third and final road map plan, this autumn will see the largest content update land, the OOParts Labyrinth. This new mode offers four players the chance to infiltrate a procedurally-generated labyrinth, fighting monsters in a quest to collect the hidden Ooparts. There will be a new boss to fight and players will gain access to new ranged attacks like magic and bows.
Whether solo or in co-op, Swords of Gargantua challenges players to face hordes of armoured enemies, blocking, parrying, and attacking deadly foes with a mixture of weapons. These can range from faster sword and shield combos to the heavier but more powerful two-handed swords.
Swords of Gargantua is currently available for Oculus Rift, Oculus Quest, Valve Index, HTC Vive, Vive Cosmos and Windows Mixed Reality headsets. As further updates are released, VRFocus will let you know.
