What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

PLEASE NOTE: This game is very early in development and does not have a large amount of content yet. If you are looking for a multi-hour experience, you may want to add the game to your wishlist and wait until we are further along in development. Blood Trail currently contains 3 wave shooter style levels and a sandbox style level where you can test out our gore system with helpless victims. A semi-procedural game mode "Raid" is coming soon, followed by many other features listed in our road map, including an elaborate, story-driven single-player campaign which will come with the full release. If you can't wait to start killing and you choose to buy during early access, you can help us shape the final game by giving us feedback through our Discord channel!

Early Access is a tool we will use to attain invaluable feedback from the community to shape Blood Trail into all it can be. There is no greater resource to creative team like ours than the word of the fans, which we will use to direct the course of the game as it matures.

Blood Trail is already a one-of-a-kind experience in VR, and there is much more to come. Releasing in Early Access will allow us to reach a much wider audience, to hone this vision, and to do it faster.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Blood Trail could be in Early Access for some time. We place quality above all else, and we won't rush anything at that expense. It would be reasonable to expect somewhere between 8 months and 2 years. What we deliver within that time span can be strengthened by Early Access success!”

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

“As we move toward the final release, we aim to add:

- Single player experience with a full narrative storyline.
- Smarter, more dynamic and convincing AI
- More enemy types and looks.
- More weapons
- New physical abilities
- New environments
- Your suggestions!”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Currently, Blood Trail boasts arcade-style survival arena shooter gameplay that offers a concentrated taste of action from the final game.

Current features:

- Full-body gore system. Not for the faint-hearted. This will continue to be expanded upon.
- Enhanced ragdoll physics offer unique death sequences with unparalleled realism.
- Realistic gunplay. Visual, audial, and experiential fidelity make the shooting and reloading a visceral experience.
- 3 arena-style maps (Compound, Forest, and Apartment.)
- Varied and aggressive enemy behaviors.
- Procedural enemy visuals. No two faces are ever exactly alike.
- Free locomotion”

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

“The initial release of Early Access features a lower starting price point. The price will gradually increase concurrently with major updates until we leave Early Access and we reach our final price.”

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

“First and foremost, we are here to listen to the community. We take all feedback seriously and we greatly appreciate it. We are primarily active on our Discord, Twitter, and Reddit communities, and we will continue to engage with the community on these platforms to make Blood Trail a better game.

Depending on the course of development, we also may eventually offer limited chances for the community to create something featured in the game itself.”

About This Game

This is BLOOD TRAIL VR. The game you have been waiting your whole sick life for. Experience what has been called "The most realistic gore system ever" in both sandbox and arcade combat modes. Take on the role of a heartless killer for hire and see why Blood Trail has been called "The most violent game in VR".

You are Wendigo. A hard-hearted contract killer motivated only by a paycheck. With a trusted arsenal at the ready, you are tasked with annihilating a fanatical cult.

Built from the ground up for VR using proprietary character physics and gore systems, Blood Trail offers an unprecedented shooting experience not for the faint of heart.

Early Access to Blood Trail gives you Arcade Mode with 3 unique arena style maps where you will face an onslaught of enemies in a fast-paced shootout as well as the infamous "sandbox room" where you get a helpless victim and blank canvas to paint on with our dynamic gore system. With realistic gun mechanics and damage effects, you will have no margin for error as you use your pistol, shotgun, rifle and fists to become the last man standing in this nightmarish and brutal scenario.

Blood Trail is just getting started. the game will eventually feature:
-A full, story driven, single-player campaign with infiltration style missions as well as huge shootouts and quiet moments of terror.
-More arcade mode maps
-More evil things to do in sandbox mode
-More weapons
-More enemy types
-More ways to murder and maim
-More drugs

There will also be an experimental branch where you can test out cool upcoming features before they make it to the main game!
We will soon be testing heavily requested features such as FULL IK BODY and ADVANCED MELEE ATTACKS!
