Pixel Toys’ Warhammer 40,000: Battle Sister was one of several virtual reality (VR) titles to arrive for Oculus Quest in time for Christmas 2020, enabling Warhammer fans to step into the war-torn universe and battle the forces of Chaos. Today, as part of the Oculus Gaming Showcase, Pixel Toys has announced the launch of its next major update, adding a co-op horde mode.
The Last Bastion horde mode launched last month with one map and only playable solo. With the free multiplayer update you and a mate can team up and fight hordes of demons, cultists, Chaos Space Marines and more, surviving against ever greater numbers as the waves progress. To aid your chances every kill earns you resources that can be used to purchase weapons and ammunition. These weapons include classics fans should already be well acquainted with like Bolters, Plasma pistols, Lasguns, Grenade launchers, Grenades, Flamers, Chainswords and Melta guns.
“We’re thrilled to be adding the Last Bastion game mode, delivering a fast and furious co-op experience, that brings players together,” says James Horn, Project Co-Director at Pixel Toys in a statement. “The team have done a huge amount of work supporting players since launch and we look forward to providing even more fantastic content going forward.”
The launch of Last Bastion will feature three maps for you play with more already in development. Pixel Toys says the next batch will arrive in a June update for Warhammer 40,000: Battle Sister.
“What better way fight of the forces of Chaos, that to bring a friend! We are very proud to be able to bring nonstopaction co-op gameplay to the Last Bastion Horde mode in Warhammer 40,000 Battle Sister,” James Horn, Project Co-Director at Pixel Toys adds.
VRFocus reviewed Warhammer 40,000 Battle Sister saying: “Warhammer 40,000: Battle Sister has some great set piece moments, and the general gameplay is enjoyable throughout. Its action all the way, so there’s not much depth to the experience and no secrets to uncover. Just grab a gun and start blasting, which is no bad thing.”
Warhammer 40,000: Battle Sister is available for Oculus Quest/Quest 2 priced at £22.99 GBP. Check out the new trailer below and for further updates keep reading VRFocus.
