What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Our ultimate goal is to produce a true e-sport with scheduled tournaments, simulated gambling, and professional announcers streaming fights live.

We've already tested the technology, but it needs several months of development time. We don't consider the game complete without it -- That's why we're in Early Access!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“It will take us most of 2018 to implement the remaining features, with full release in 2019.”

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

“Spectators will be able to attend live events in VR, communicate, gamble, and sponsor their favorite fighters in high-stakes tournaments.

Players will earn tickets which can be used to unlock new skins, gloves, taunts, and other features. Tickets would also be used for simulated gambling during live tournaments, with winners earning a cut of the wagers.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Phase I Features
- Single-player AI tournament ladders
- 25 distinct AI fighting styles
- Realistic physics and boxing mechanics
- 5 bonus mini-games
- Achievements, Stats, and Leaderboards
- Trading Cards and Badges (Coming Soon -- They are 100% finished and ready to go, but Steam is not allowing us to activate them yet because of a policy regarding new games)”

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

“Price will increase with each phase. Final release price will be 60% more than Phase I Early Access.”

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

“All of our development is directed entirely by community feedback.”

Reviews

“It’s not just a fun boxing game; VBL is my new favorite cardio workout.... I can honestly say this is my favorite boxing experience in VR to date.... The fighting in VBL is flat-out fun and it’s the closest thing I’ve seen to real boxing in a VR game.”
TheNextWeb (TNW)

“Virtual Boxing League is full of fast action and good boxing mechanics. Several opportunities for fitness hacking exist within the game, with ample game modes to add diversity. Every experience feels fresh, especially if you return to the title after a period away from it.”
8/10 – VR Fitness Insider

About This Game

Virtual Boxing League is a realistic physics and skill-based VR boxing simulation!

Learn how to box, build self-confidence, have fun and get a great workout while developing your own personal fighting style!

Challenge AI boxers in five ladders, with opponents adopting distinct styles based on motion captures from real professionals!

Other VR boxing games are designed as an arcade experience, with unrealistic physics, predictable patterns, and simple gameplay. We've created a new concept that builds real fighting skills and rewards your boxing instincts!

Enjoy 5 additional mini-games when you need a break from the ring!

  • Ball Blaster is a high-tech musical arcade experience
  • Punch-A-Tron is an old steam-powered carnival contraption
  • Bum Rush is a wild banjo-strumming bathroom brawl
  • Body Bag trains your speed, strength, and accuracy
  • Ping Pong Punch teaches delicate control of your meat mitts

Phase II

Price increases by 35%

While the current game is full-featured and functional, there is a lot more we want to add!

Multiplayer sparring comes next, matching up real players from around the world and tracking their stats! We've already prototyped the technology but it needs several months of development time and testing to complete.

Phase III

Price increases by 50%

Our ultimate goal is to produce a true e-sport with scheduled tournaments, simulated gambling, and professional announcers streaming fights live.

Players will earn tickets which can be used to unlock new skins, gloves, taunts, and other features. Tickets would also be used for simulated gambling during live tournaments, with winners earning a cut of the wagers.

Phase IV - Release

Price increases by 60%

We will launch Virtual Boxing League as a full multiplayer VR experience, highly polished and thoroughly tested.

Spectators will be able to attend live events in VR, communicate, gamble, and sponsor their favorite fighters in high-stakes tournaments.
