What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Feedback from players at an early stage would be very much appreciated in order to guide the direction of the finished game and to have a wider base for testing and opinion.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“6 to 12 months realistically.”

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

“The final game is not expected to be vastly different to it's current form in terms of objectives and core gameplay mechanics, but growing larger in scope with more areas to explore and more weapons to collect and types of enemies to fight. There will be ongoing improvements to AI, animation, level layout and design.
There are various key buildings planned for the future which the player will be able to enter and explore e.g. pubs filled with zombies where you can shoot the place up, turn over tables and send glass shards flying about the place. Restaurants, cafe's, fish and chip shops, Police Station etc
The final boss battle will not be included until final game release.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“- The game is fun, playable, and representative of the final game.
- The current size of the game is approx 1/2 the anticipated final map size.
- Artwork and gameplay is representative of the minimum final quality to expect.
- Frame rate is stable on base spec PC running on Oculus Rift CV1.
- There are catacombs to explore.
- There is a whole underground tunnel network to explore.
- Half the town is complete.
- Half the cemetery is complete.”

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

“The game will almost certainly go up in price after leaving Early Access. Players are advised to buy it during Early Access to avoid price rises.”

About This Game

About the game
Fight your way through swarms of undead zombies, vampires and werewolves in this action packed VR game. Set in the 1980's Beasts Shall Rise is a love letter to the classics - Doom, Castlevania, Ghosts n Goblins, Gauntlet, Sabre Wulf, Knight Lore, Underwurlde, Atic Atac etc



Key Features

Weapons
While you start off the game with only your trusty revolver, you will soon discover new weapons along the way that can be collected and added to your arsenal. Including chainsaws, grenades, machineguns etc. The weapons you can collect will depend on the route you choose to take to the final battle. Either way, time is not on your side.

Control Scheme
Promising full freedom of movement (no teleporting!) Beasts Shall Rise® is a single-player first-person VR shooter which allows the player to explore the environment however they choose. The game is playable either seated or standing using motion controllers and requires only a small room area.

Replayability
The game is designed to offer an arcade style experience with a high level of replayability. Spawn points and pathways will change on each play meaning no two games will be identical. The game also contains many seasonal hidden Easter eggs which are triggered to only appear on certain days of the year. Don't play late at night though....or risk finding yourself in Midnight Madness Mode!

Hardware Requirements
The game is designed for Oculus Rift and HTC Vive VR headsets. Touch controllers or Vive controllers needed. Minimum spec graphics card is Nvidia GeForce GTX980. Please ensure you meet the necessary hardware specs before purchase.
