Gemma Jessop, Cherry Pop Games commented: “We were so inspired by all the great feedback we had from the VR community about Football in VR, and to us it was impossible to ignore that 2018 is the year of the World Cup and we wanted to bring a little bit of that magic into Virtual Reality. When you step out onto that pitch, with the crowd roaring, the atmosphere is palpable, it really was a wow moment for me.”

To Celebrate the launch with football’s biggest VR tournament the free content update contains new game mode allowing you to play through the tournament with your favourite country. Football Nation VR 2018 is the perfect way for every football fan to run on the pitch of the World’s most loved sport.

Giving the players more flexibility to manage members and create their own teams.

By popular demand VRFC is going to be Room scale!

One of the reasons VRFC is in Early Access is to build the game with the community and to develop a unique experience for PC gamers; so now you can test out and develop the new Room Scale controls with us, it is an OPEN BETA channel so please join and try out the new room scale mechanics before it is released ːsteamhappyː

So join us for a match and give room scale football a try!

HOW TO JOIN THE BETA:

The new Beta branch is up on Steam (Right click the game in your library, then properties and to the Beta tab). It should have some information in the news section on the first whiteboard, but I'll re-iterate here:

HOW TO ACTIVATE ROOM SCALE IN GAME:

The Beta has a new option on the menu at the side of the pitch. This option is called '360 Turning' and means that you can use the direction you are facing as the direction you want to run in. This works well on Vive and can also be used on Oculus setup's that have sensors aligned for room-scale tracking. You will not be bale to play online on this build currently but we aim to make this live on all three platforms shortly.

HOW TO PLAY:

You will now run in the direction you are looking.
ALSO when running you can press to look around while in the new mode, you can hold the currently labelled 'Dribble Assist' BUTTON (Left Top Centre for Vive/Left Y Button for Oculus) and this will use your last facing direction as your new running direction while you have the button held. Releasing the button allows you to start running where you look again. This allows you to press the button and look around for people to pass to or people coming to perhaps tackle you.

Any feedback on this mode is appreciated so please do drop any suggestions into the suggestions channel on discord.
