Frostpoint VR: Proving Grounds‘ closed beta offered the first chance for players to test a wide variety of the titles realistic pistols and rifles. In a press statement regarding the open beta the studio confirms: “During the open beta test, players will be able to engage with more weapons and tools to round out their arsenal, new enemies, two new maps and a new game mode (‘Attack and Defend’) that will be released later in the beta.”
Scheduled for a 2020 launch for Oculus Rift, HTC Vive and Valve Index, Frostpoint VR: Proving Grounds is currently a purely team-based multiplayer FPS with one slight twist, human players aren’t the only opponents to watch out for. While the guns might be realistic, the sci-fi element adds terrifying biomechanical creatures dubbed ‘The Function’.
Matches will be big with two teams of ten going head-to-head, completing objectives all set in an abandoned Antarctica military base. The final version of Frostpoint VR: Proving Grounds won’t be purely multiplayer as inXile Entertainment confirmed in an interview with VRFocus, that there will be a solo mode using bots so players can test the various weapons and locations.
VRFocus will continue its coverage of Frostpoint VR: Proving Grounds, reporting back with further updates as the open beta gets underway.
