Early Access Game

Get instant access and start playing; get involved with this game as it develops.

Note: This Early Access game is not complete and may or may not change further. If you are not excited to play this game in its current state, then you should wait to see if the game progresses further in development. Learn more

What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“While our team is working on improvements and implementation of new features we want to make available playable version of the game for community to engage in discussions of improvements or ideas of new features.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“According to our schedule we are planning to release fully functional version of the game in coming winter. This may be subject to change depending on the features we will implement after getting feedback from the community.”

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

“We are very excited about the game and have plenty of new ideas but before implementing them we want to discus them with community and hear theirs ideas. Then together we can choose the features that most players will love to see in the game. We will also strive to make co-op mode as good as possible and adjust the game difficulty in the single player mode.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“In the version now available players can play with endless waves of enemies. Both in singleplayer and multiplayer co-operation.

In Single-player Mode players can compete in score leaderboards. In order to be one of the best archers player will have to prove his archery skills slaying thousands of orcs with extra prized spectacular shots (headshots, distantshots etc.).

In Multi-player Mode (BETA) players can unite with other players to defend elven town together. There is voice chat available to enable players to really interact with each other and plan the best strategy for the match.

The orcs with axe are most dangerous, if player doesn't kill them with oneshot, better he/she be prepared for flaying axe in his direction.”

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

“The game is likely to cost more to reflect the value added to the game and to appreciate the involvement of players in early stage of the game. The price may increase both during and after Early Access.”

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

“As mentioned above we want to hear players ideas of improvements and new features. There is a lot of things to add or improve that sometimes can be seen only from player point of view. We know, together with Steam community we can create the game that all players will enjoy and the game itself will add the great value to the store content.”

Update 1.23 - Oculus Cross-Play and Touch support

Hi, Elven Assassins!
We have just released the new update that consists of the following:

We have just enabled the cross-play functionality between Oculus and Steam! So sorry it took so long, but it was a quite complicated technical task with many issues to be fixed down the road to make this possible.

Thanks to this feature you can play with your friend who uses the Oculus version!

We don't guarantee we will support this forever, but hopefully, there will be no issues that would make us stop to support this great feature.

Oculus Touch Support
From now on we added official support for Oculus Touch.

There is one known issue when the laser pointer might be pointing a little be to upwards than it is reasonable. This happens only for the limited time and will be resolved in the next update!

Other bugfixes:
For those who have some issues with some words being changed from English to Korean the issue is now resolved.

Stay tuned for the tournaments which are coming next!

About This Game

Should I join?

Is there anything more epic than slaying hordes of orcs with a bow in Virtual Reality? When nothing comes to your mind, then you probably should try this.
If you thought: "Of course, slaying them with my friends online in co-op mode!", then this is the matter of destiny.

Become an elven assassin.

Take a bow and kill hundreds of orcs of different types that want to get into the elven town and destroy it. As an elven assassin, you will make spectacular shots like long distant headshots or you will send lethal arrows through the windows. All this to conquer global leaderboards of other elven assassins.

Piece of cake then?

Not really. This is real orcs assault. The Orcs are running fast making the game more competitive. They break into houses to hide from your arrows, and when they got furious their massive axe is thrown to splash you head into pieces.

Assassin United.

Two, Three or Four assassin may unite to defend the town. Use wisely the four available archery spots to survive as long as possible. You can choose one of the public servers, that asks for your support or decide to defend the castle only with the brothers you know on the private server.

PvP Deathmatch.

For those who would rather test themselves against other players online in a competitive mode, the PvP Deathmatch was introduced. But be careful with this one as there are some extremely skilled archers waiting for a challenge there.

VR Parks and Arcades.
