After a successful launch back in July for In Death: Unchained on Oculus Quest, developer Superbright teased work on a new gameplay mode which would be some sort of archery range. Today, those details have been revealed as the Siege of Heaven DLC, scheduled to arrive next month.
It’s a wave mode which can be played alternatively to the game’s main loop, helping to open up In Death: Unchained to more casual players who might find the standard campaign a little intense. Viewed from higher ground in a safe spot, an easy mode lets newbies play at their own pace and get a feel for the mechanics.
For those already well-versed in In Death: Unchained the difficulty scales up for a real test of those bow skills. Plus there are features like new leaderboards, challenges and achievements to aim for.
“It’s a fully-featured game-within-a-game, with shorter more “snackable” session times, where players can focus on having fun shooting for 15 minutes, from a safe stationary position, enjoy the game’s beautiful visuals and arguably VR’s best archery mechanics,” says Superbright’s CEO Wojtek Podgórski in a statement.
“The community around the game has been amazing, and we see this free DLC as a gift to our players, a way of thanking them for their support. Our goal was to enhance the game in a way that will engage and challenge the advanced players, and boy it’s that and more – but we also wanted to make it approachable for everyone else,” Podgórski continues. “We’ve heard our players say they’d love to be able to share the fun with friends and family, but maybe the game was too scary or too demanding. And we listened – we’ve all loved the archery from The Lab, this is how most of us got started in VR. With this DLC we hope to bring this experience to VR’s best platform – Oculus Quest, so anyone should be able to pick up the game and enjoy the best their Quest has to offer, at their own pace. You can just give the headset to someone who’s new to VR – your friend, your mom or uncle, and they will have fun with it right away.”
In Death: Unchained’s ‘Siege of Heaven’ DLC expansion will be available for free from 8th December 2020. For further updates, keep reading VRFocus.
