In the seven months since its launch BigBox VR’s Population: One has become one of the biggest multiplayer shooters available for virtual reality (VR) headsets. Apart from the base battle royale content, the studio has steadily released new content like its Super Advanced War Mode and the limited-run Season 1. Having previously teased Season 2 is on the way, today BigBox VR has confirmed the new season is due to arrive next week.
While Season 2 will introduce new kit for players to test out, the content rollout will feature two major additions, a new themed location, and a player expansion. Population: One – Season 2: The Frontier will provide a brand new western-themed map destination so teams can have their own Wild West shootouts. And those gunfights are going to get even crazier as BigBox VR has confirmed to VRFocus it’ll be expanding the number of players in one match from 18 up to 24.
In Season 1 BigBox VR introduced melee weapons and as you can see in the new trailer for Season 2, the team will be dropping dual-wielding weapons with some rather stylish-looking, double barreled pistols called the Matadors. And as this is the new frontier it looks like players will be able to dress for the part as well.
BigBox VR hasn’t confirmed what’ll be free and what content will require some cash, but much like the previous season expect to find certain cosmetic items only available if you buy the Battle Pass. With the launch still a week away, more Population: One – Season 2 details are still likely to arrive, hopefully offering a better look at the new destination.
Supporting Oculus Quest, Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, Valve Index, and Windows Mixed Reality headsets, Population: One – Season 2: The Frontier is scheduled to launch on Thursday 13th May 2021 for players. Check out the new trailer below and for further updates on Population: One, keep reading VRFocus.
