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?

“We are working with an unique VR experience, with many Heroes to choose from, each with a different type of VR locomotion and gameplay style. We are also working with flying and aerial combat, which is very rare in a FPS multiplayer game. These poses some challenges but also a lot of potential for an awesome new gaming experience.

A lot of this is quite experimental, so we want to engage the gaming community during Early Access to get your feedback, to create more Heroes, locomotion mechanisms, Maps, and Gameplay Modes as we develop the game continuously. We look forward to your feedback and help us shape this unique VR game.

We also hope to raise some money from Early Access so we can expand our team to speed up the development process.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“around 6-12 months.”

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

“Our goal is to create a Multiplayer VR flying FPS game that will define a new generation of e-Sport. We hope to co-create a VR game with YOU that has depth, encourages strategic gameplay, and is just awesome and unlike any other experiences in VR currently.

We plan to achieve the following by the time we launch the game officially:
  • 4 Heroes to choose from (or more, if we can get interesting suggestion from the community)
  • 4 Missions (each featuring a Hero's back story)
  • 6 maps or more for Multiplayer PvP (up to 8 players)
  • More Multiplayer game modes that we will develop together with the community
  • Available for Vive, Oculus, and Windows MR.
  • We might explore cross-platform gameplay with non-VR players.

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

  • 3 completely playable Heroes: Draco, Jet-9, and Lady V.
  • 1 Single Player Mission.
  • Single Player timed race mode (for 2 maps).
  • 3 maps for Multiplayer PvP (up to 8 players)
  • Multiplayer Game Modes: Free For All, Big Race, Team Escort, Team Deathmatch
  • HTC vive is fully supported. Oculus is playable but may be tricky to use without the 360 3-sensor setup. WMR headsets: playable but may lose tracking for some of the hand motions outside of field of view

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

“We are selling the game really cheap at beginning of Early Access! We are raising the price incrementally as we ship new content updates. Get the game now! The low price will not stay long and price will definitely increase as we add more contents.”

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

“Through regular Beta Testing of our new features, and updating features regularly (we should be updating every two to three weeks). We just pushed our latest update, with new Hero and new map. We have been engaging our beta testers and many of the current features are a result of listening to our hardcore fans. We will definitely continue to engage the players in forums and chat groups to discuss more ideas and features.”

About This Game

Available for Arcades on SpringboardVR

Multiplayer VR flying FPS game

BattleSky VR is a Multiplayer VR shooter game, bringing Overwatch style gameplay to the VR platform. Each player picks a Hero with vastly different size, powers and gameplay style to engage in fast-paced aerial combats against other players. Play online against other players with classic Team Deathmatch, Team Escort, Free For All, Attack and Defend, and other team based modes of up to 4v4 players! Pick your Heroes wisely, your unique powers will determine gameplay strategies as you team up to defeat the opponents!

Viveport Developer Award 2018

BattleSky VR is the winner of the Viveport Developer Award 2018, placing second under the Arcade category.

Which Hero do you want to be?

Currently, 3 Heroes are available for use: Draco, Jet-9 and Lady V. Will you flap your wings to soar through the sky and shoot fireballs as Draco? Or, zoom through the sky with the hand thrusters as Jet-9? Or "Blink" Teleport around the sky and summon black Hole with Lady V's Gravity Gun? As we develop the game further during Early Access, we look forward to YOUR feedback and suggestions as we add more Heroes, each with unique flying and battle capabilities.



Single Player Mission Mode

Each Hero will have a single player mission mode where you'll learn the back story about the Heroes, and get familiar with the controls and the unique Flying Locomotion.

Co-op missions

We are adding new co-op missions that allow 1-4 players to team up against A.I. Our first Co-op mission is Co-op escort. Players team up to escort an airship to the destination while fighting off A.I. We will be adding more co-op modes as we develop the game.

Unique VR Locomotion

The game’s unique hyper-speed flying locomotion mechanisms had been tested by over 1300 testers, and has been fine-tuned to allow nausea-free extreme high speed flying (imagine flying at 200 km/h). Less than 5% of our testers and players have experienced motion sickness with our locomotion systems. With 3 heroes currently, and 1 more planned for the game by the time we exit Early Access, players will be sure to find a hero that matches their play style. Depending on the community's response, we will look to add more Heroes based on the community's input.

Early Access

We want to engage the gaming community during Early Access and continue to add more Heroes, Maps, and Gameplay Modes as we develop the game continuously. We look forward to your feedback and help us shape this unique VR game. Please see the "Early Access" section for what content will be available at launch of Early Access.

Our Ultimate Goal

Our goal is to create a Multiplayer VR FPS game that will define a new generation of e-Sport. We hope to co-create with YOU a game that has depth, encourages strategic gameplay, and is just awesome and unlike any other experiences on VR. Please see the "Early Access" section for what content we plan to complete by the time we exit Early Access.
