What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“The forefront of the VR gaming revolution has attracted an outspoken, tight-knit community that is as crucial to the development process as our own internal testing and development. After the positive reception we’ve received from multiple events including VRLA, GDC, PAX East and West, and E3, we’ve made player feedback a key element of evolving Raw Data from a co-op demo into a fully realized Active VR game that everyone will want to play again and again.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We’re aiming to have the full version of Raw Data ready as soon as possible. The Early Access period will last as long as it needs to gather valuable community feedback, implement it into the game, and nuke every reported bug or glitch to ensure the final game is solid and complete in both gameplay and narrative.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The full release of Raw Data will be an ambitious, replayable smash-up of adrenaline-heavy action and engaging environments. You’ll get shooter-style firepower such as akimbo pistols, pump-action shotguns, and compound bows, but also dynamic melee combat with blades and fists, deadly defenses such as upgradable turrets, barricades, and traps, as well as special abilities and ultimates for each hero. During matches you will also have access to numerous boost items like destructible shields and laser sights, in addition to secondary weapons such as throwable grenades, sidearms, and more. On top of all that, we’re developing more unique enemy types, as well as building out a full 12-part story campaign to further immerse you in the game.

The beginning of Early Access introduced players to two starting heroes, each with their own unique weapons and nanotech-based special abilities. And we’ve already got more heroes that will be unveiled later in the Early Access period. Additionally, we are putting a heavy amount of focus on new maps to further expand the experience, with a total of twelve missions currently planned for full release - each with their own sets of challenges and achievements. We’re also continually revamping the in-game visuals and experimenting with exciting new ways to eviscerate your android enemies.

Throughout Raw Data’s evolution--both during Early Access and after the full version is released--these content updates will be heavily influenced by the continuous feedback we receive from our community.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Since its launch in July 2016, Raw Data’s Early Access build has significantly evolved from our original showcase build circa E3 2016. Our two original playable heroes—Bishop, the Gun Cleric, and Saija, the Cyber Ninja—now have two cohorts: Boss, the Street Merc and Elder, the Rogue Hunter. We also now have nine missions packed with a dozen different enemy types, challenging new environmental mechanics, and deployable turret and shield defenses.

The 0.7 update also adds Hostile Takeover, a new, free player-vs-player game expansion that we’ve been extensively testing in closed and open beta sessions. PvP has been a community request from the early Alpha days, and we’ve put in a lot of time and effort constructing challenging maps, balancing our hero classes, and building what we feel is an exciting, intuitive PvP experience that fits seamlessly into the Raw Data universe.

Most importantly, Raw Data’s social VR experience has also grown significantly. It started with in-game matchfinding and leaderboards, but now, with the addition of cross-platform play in both the co-op campaign and in PvP, we’ve officially bridged the rift between Vive and Oculus and are helping unify the VR community, one robot kill at a time.

And we must include one small disclaimer: because Raw Data is still in Early Access, player progress may be reset from time to time as we release patches and improve systems design. We treat systems as features just like everything else, so we greatly value feedback from the community on progression, unlocks, credits, scores, leaderboards, challenges, and the like. Also, we anticipate a full progress reset on all players when we launch v.1—the final game—but all players who purchase Raw Data while it’s in Early Access will also get the full game on release.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“All Early Access purchases will retain the full product value of the final release price: if you get Raw Data during Early Access, you will also get the full game on release.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“The main hub for community engagement will be right here on our Steam community forum, where our devs are already engaging with questions and discussions. We’ve also got exclusive content features about Raw Data and its production that will be published here on Steam and simultaneously on the official Raw Data news site. We also have submission forms on the official Raw Data website to report bugs and share feedback.

Also, be sure to follow our social media channels on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram, where we’ll be regularly sharing updates. Several of our devs are also active in Reddit’s r/vive and r/oculus communities.”

“Survios’ Raw Data is the most addictive single player first person shooter on VR. Full stop.”

Hardcore Gamer

“Raw Data...is intuitive, it's challenging and it's an incredible amount of fun.”

About This Game

Neo-Shinjuku - 2271. The massive and seemingly benevolent Eden Corporation owns the world. The elite hacker resistance movement SyndiK8 has unearthed the sinister reality behind Eden Corp’s newest line of robotic products. As one of SyndiK8’s elite operatives, your mission is straightforward: infiltrate Eden Tower, steal as much Raw Data as possible, and get out alive--bringing Eden Corp down in your wake.

However, as the secrets behind Chairman Shiro’s new “Promotion” program becomes clear, the reality gets much more complicated. Does it really grant immortality? What is Eden truly collecting? It seems that Eden’s corporate veneer may be just a thin facade for something much, much worse.

Built from the ground up for virtual reality, Raw Data’s action combat gameplay, intuitive controls, challenging enemies, and sci-fi atmosphere will completely immerse you within the surreal environments of Eden Corp. Go solo—or team up with a friend—and become the adrenaline-charged heroes of your own futuristic technothriller. You will put your wits, boldness, and endurance to the test.

Active VR gameplay turns you into a controller, with instant reflex access to an arsenal of advanced weapons and cutting-edge nanotech powers. Shared spaces with avatars and motion tracking encourage players to physically communicate through body language and environment interaction.

Cool Features
  • Active VR Combat: Utilize your body to dual wield pistols, slash and slice katanas, pump shotguns, deflect projectiles, do gun tricks, or even use your fists in close-quarters combat. Holster up and pull weapons off your body with physical loadout and check your stats on the in-game forearm display.
  • Hostile Takeover PvP: Whatever side you’re on, this fight is personal. Featuring four hero classes with optimized abilities, balanced gameplay, intuitive “joystick” locomotion, as well as stealth and armor powerups, Raw Data: Hostile Takeover lets you battle it out in up to 5v5 matches across multiple king-of-the-hill maps. Duel Mode (coming soon!) also provides a unique 1v1 showdown experience for those who are bent on revenge.
  • Choose Your Hero: What’s your fighting style? Choose from multiple badass heroes--Bishop, the Gun Cleric; Saija, the Cyber Ninja; Boss, the Street Merc; or Elder, the Rogue Hunter --with a variety of advanced weaponry, special abilities, combat techniques, and ultimates. Defy gravity, slow down time, charge up shots, crush enemies, boomerang your blades, unleash deadly bullet barrages, fling enemies into the air, and much more.
  • Deadly Weapons and Defenses: Access a futuristic arsenal of firepower, from dual handguns and pump-action shotguns to iron knuckles and laser swords, as well as deployable turrets and holographic shields for extra insurance.
  • Adaptable Enemies: Battle against swaths of murderous machines, including stealth ninjas, laser gunners, rocket heavies, jumping crawlers, exploder bots, flying drones, charger mechs, ion beams, towering megabots, and more.

  • Cross-Platform Online Co-op: Bring along a trusted partner to cover your back no matter what platform they’re playing on. Team up in a shared co-op VR space that encourages social communication via body language, facial expression, and blended animation.
