What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“I spent countless hours playing multi-player FPS with my friends growing up. My favorite part of that experience was tweaking the settings to create custom game types. I’m aiming to recreate that experience for the VR community, and getting feedback is an important part of that process. Early access allows me to communicate with players so I can mold the game to fit the community.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“I plan to fully release it sometime in late 2018.”

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

“Graphical and audio assets will improve across the board. Weapon mechanics will be refined; game variant options will continue to grow. The UI and content sharing system will be improved.

I plan to add additional content to the campaign mode, including more missions, better AI, better encounters, bosses, and leaderboards.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current version includes 1 rough campaign mission and 4 official multiplayer maps, with workshop maps being fully supported. There are 8 guns: pistol, shotgun, sniper, assault rifle, SMG, rocket launcher, plasma pistol, and plasma rifle and 2 grenade types: frag and sticky.

There are 3 game modes: Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch, and Capture the Flag. All game modes are fully configurable via “Variants,” which are stored in shareable files. There are a wide variety of modifiable options for games, such as scalable movement, health settings, game-wide weapon spawns, time limits, etc.”

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

“The price may fluctuate due to the market but will not necessarily change after the early access period.”

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

“Community feedback is given the highest consideration in regards to the development process. I am active on the Steam discussion board and the Hailstorm VR discord server. I also hold casual scheduled play sessions regularly. I use the feedback I get from these sessions to fix issues and implement new features.”

About This Game

Hailstorm is a multiplayer-focused sci-fi shooter designed for VR, with a focus on agile locomotion and gameplay customization. Players enter battle equipped with electrical body armor, wrist-mounted rocket thrusters, a wingsuit, up to 4 weapons, and 4 grenades. Custom game variants allow for nearly everything to be tweaked to create a wide range of gameplay from insane, high speed aerial combat to slow and careful tactical scenarios. User generated maps are fully supported and can be created in Unreal Editor and downloaded from Steam Workshop.

  • Walk with the thumbpad and use one of several customizable motion controller locomotion methods to sprint. Tweak speeds and efficacy to dial in on whatever sort of mobility you prefer.
  • Perform skillful aerial maneuvers using a unique full body locomotion system designed around motion controls
  • Fully ambidextrous weapon controls and a forgiving reload mechanic allow for smooth dual wielding of anything, assuming you can control for recoil.
  • Weapons spawn on maps and are fully swappable. Want to spawn with shotguns and have only rockets and snipers on the map? You can do that!
  • Prepare yourself for live battle by fighting multiplayer bots and shooting aliens in single player mode
  • Spawn aliens into multiplayer matches to create additional chaos
