What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Mainly to gather the funds that i need to finish the game and to gather feedback to property balance the game, being a multiplayer only experience it could easily be ruined by unbalanced maps and weapons.

Siege mode will be developed during early access with the help of the community.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“6 to 12 months”

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

“The full version should be bug free, balanced and with a couple more maps and weapons

  • Siege game mode
  • Smarter bots
  • Better matchmaking with competitive/ranked support

Experimental zombie mode will be added along the way.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game is fully featured, it's well optimized for VR recommended hardware and contains the appropriate tutorials for an easy dive into multiplayer.

  • Bots
  • Graphics & input customization
  • Crafted with attention to detail

The map
There's only one map shipping in early access, which is called "Datacenter", a semi-long and close-quarters scenario for team death-match, capture the flag and search and destroy.

Overall there's little content, but it's of good quality nothing has been rushed or/and left broken.”

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

“Any change to the pricing will depend on the player base and the cost of running the dedicated servers.

It's important to note that i will favor (not-pay-to-win) micro transactions over increasing the price, even going free to play if player-base is small (with proper rewards for people who bought it initially)”

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

“Bi-Weekly update announcements and direct involvement in the community hub.”

SteamVR Input with WMR and Index Support in beta testing

Hello guys :steamhappy:

We've been busy implementing SteamVR Input to allow full support for Index Controllers and Windows Mixed Reality, basically finger tracking and input mapping.

This update might be quite disrupting to left handed players as we've removed all related settings - with the exception of the dominant hand checkbox for weapon spawning purposes.

However, i'm confident that allowing full input remapping is the best choice in the long term including remapping for left handed players.

If you happen to have your Index already, WMR or just interesting in remapping your controllers, please try the beta and let us know what you think in steam discussions or discord

Update 1 of 2
You might notice there's two new pair of hands, this is because there's something else cooking up in the oven so expect the other half of the update later in July.

Oculus Native
There's no remapping if you run the game with native oculus however, Oculus support is now also available in SteamVR with full remapping features.

Thank you everyone for the support :steamhappy:

Update 20 - Steam Audio, Attachments & New Workshop API

:steamhappy: Hello guys!

This update has taken more time than expected, from upgrading the engine to implementing Steam Audio with a complete sound revamp, it's been a challenge to get to this point.

Aside from that we got features that have been getting requested for a while like better workshop support for custom game modes, attachments, shooting range, etc, etc.

Steam Audio & AMD FX processors
Sadly this update is not compatible with AMD FX processor line, however we added sound quality settings to mitigate the effect this might cause.

Note that if you stream or have a lot of background processes, the sound settings might come handy as well.

Complete Weapon Model Revamp
A huge effort has been put into replacing old weapons with high quality vr-ready models, i hope you guys enjoy them as we did adding them.

Workshop Nuke
A byproduct of this update is that all maps not packaged with Unreal 4.21 are not compatible now. However there's been an active effort to get new maps and game modes for this update by the community. :steamhappy:

Community Servers
Community servers are exactly that, servers hosted and managed by the community allowing more than 10 players per server. This will be available soon as a small update, in the meantime try the battle royale testing server.

Join the discord: and follow me on twitter @davevillz for updates. If you believe on what we are doing and wanna go the extra mile to support the developing effort take a look here :steamhappy:

Thank you everyone for the support! :steamhappy:
