What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We don’t want to toot our own horn too much, but Skyfront’s approach to locomotion is pretty damn unique on the current VR market. That means an enormous amount of details to figure out and test. We are using our time in EA to make sure that the final version of Skyfront is as thrilling as we envision it!

As a small indie developer, the support and feedback we get from our players during EA is what keeps us pushing hard to polish Skyfront to its shiny perfection!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Our plan is to spend about eight to ten months on development. But that being said, community feedback is what ultimately shapes the final version of Skyfront. We want to make the experience as fun and engaging as possible and we will keep working tirelessly until we get there.”

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

“The full version of Skyfront is set to have:

- Five game modes, incl. Single Deathmatch, 3v3 Elimination and Capture The Flag;
- Five to six maps;
- 20+ weapons and special abilities to cater to the player’s personal preferences;
- A progression system;
- Customizable character assets;
- A play against AI feature;
- Additional single player content.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Skyfront currently has:

- Two gorgeous zero-gravity maps – Greece and Egypt;
- Two game types – Deathmatch & Team Deathmatch;
- Five weapons + one Locomotion Device with a grappling hook function;
- Five special abilities, incl. Shield and Shockwave;
- A private room function;
- Bot Shootout;
- In-game voice chat.”

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

“Skyfront will have a gradual price increase as we release major new features and content.”

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

“Our primary channels for chatting with our community are Skyfront’s Discord channel and our social media. That is where we get to know the community and toss around new ideas.
We also regularly post updates and announce new features and bug fixes on Skyfront’s Steam Community page and on our dev blog. The plan is to release updates about every two weeks or so.”

Rules
  1. Players will compete in four skill categories – Kills, Multikills, Kill Streak and Headshots. Each skill category will have a separate scoreboard. The top 20 players in each skill category will be given points for their place on the leaderboard as follows:
    1st place – 25 points
    2nd place – 22 points
    3rd place – 20 points

    11th place – 10 points

    17th place – 4 points
    18th place – 3 points
    19th place – 2 points
    20th place – 1 point
    A player’s points in each skill category will be tallied up on the leaderboard. The player with the highest combined score on the leaderboard will be declared the winner.
  2. In case of a tie, the player with the least deaths in his/her winning game will take the lead and be awarded the higher number of points in that skill category. If no two players tie, a player's spot on the leaderboard will only be determined by his/her total points.
  3. A player’s high score will be registered at the end of the game or when the player exits the game.
  4. Players may use all weapons and special abilities.
  5. Players are forbidden from teaming up and assisting each other or using bugs or glitches with the intention of getting a better high score.
  6. Abusive behaviour will not be tolerated in-game, especially in VOIP – keep it friendly!
  7. The high scores will be counted for games with a minimum of 3 players at the start of the game. NOTE! If the game starts with three players and two players leave before the end of the game, the high score of the last remaining player will be locked the moment the second to last player leaves the game.
  8. The winners are the players with the TOP 3 highest total scores on the leaderboard at the end of the Skirmish.
  9. Arcade accounts are excluded from the Skirmishes (see Important Notes below).
  10. Prizes will be awarded at the end of the Skirmish.
  11. Skyfront will attempt to contact the winners of the Skirmishes, but to guarantee that you get your due prize asap, please contact the devs on Skyfront’s social media or Discord channel.

Important Notes
High scores from arcades will not be included in the Skirmishes. Separate events will be organised for arcades. That being said, arcade players are still more than welcome to join in on the Skirmishes, but their scores will not be counted towards anything.

All Skyfront Skirmishes will be moderated to ensure no one is cheating or breaking any rules.

Skyfront Skirmish – Overview
Skyfront Skirmishes are weekend challenges that Skyfront organises every couple of weeks. During each Skirmish, players will compete with each other in four skill categories – Kills, Multikills, Killstreaks and Headshots. Play time is limited to the duration of the Skirmish and all weapons and special abilities are allowed. Special terms and conditions may apply depending on the Skirmish.

Each future Skyfront Skirmish and the prizes of future Skirmishes will be announced separately.

If you love the Skirmishes or have any suggestions for what we could do better or differently, give us devs a shoutout on our Discord channel

Patch 19.1

Updates in this patch:
  • The target score in Domination mode has been increased from 250 to 500 points. This change should balance gameplay and give both teams a better shot at turning the match in their favour.
  • The custom graffiti of the winner of our Launch Giveaway – Xjac0bmichaelX – has popped up on the Polis arena.
  • The size of the Genesis arena has been reduced by 25%.



We fixed these bugs:
  • Missing colliders have been added to Genesis;
  • The Pineapple is now actually nerfed – pellet damage has been reduced from 40 to 20;
  • The controller shader and button layout bugs in the tutorial;
  • All logic errors in the customisation menu, incl. numbering and tab sequences;
  • Several bugs affecting communication between the game and server;
  • The bug that disabled the microphones of all of the players in the match after a map vote;
  • The bug that would display the same amount of gained XP for several matches regardless of how much the player actually gained XP in each individual match;
  • The bug that caused the game to display incorrect scores in Team Deathmatch.
  • The faulty control points in Domination Mode on the Genesis arena.

General Note from the Devs!
We are aware that in certain cases when a player joins a match, the audio from other players will be muted even though the mic symbol shows them talking. The player's own audio is still heard by the other players.
Fixing this bug will take a bit more time and we didn't want to delay the patch any further. A quick fix for the bug is closing the app (only leaving the match will not do the trick) and reopening it.
We will have this bug fixed in the next patch.

About This Game


Skyfront is a multiplayer FPS built exclusively for VR. Jump into our fast-paced zero-G battles and get your heart rate thumping!

PS. We’re a bloodless FPS, so YES, you can play against your little sister, mom and that one really squeamish friend that freaks out every time someone mentions blood!


You whoosh around by equipping the Thruster and pointing your hand wherever you want to go.

If you’re a VR pro and like to go REALLY FAST, try out the Grapple that latches onto surfaces and lets you spiderman around the game arenas.


Skyfront presents you with a versatile weapons arsenal and plenty of special abilities to boot! Whether you like to snipe your opponents from afar or get right into their faces – we’ve got you covered! Plus we’ve got Zero-G pineapples!


The game features four crazy cool arenas. The distinct sizes and layouts of the arenas promote different types of gameplay, from really fast-paced and intense to more calculated and sneaky.

You can also choose between traditional Single Deathmatch and Team Deathmatch game modes and the more intense team-based Domination mode.


Every time you unlock a new progression level, we throw awesome customisation assets your way! Skins, visors, trails – be your perfect VR you! The bragging rights you get whenever you level up aren’t half bad either!
