Developer Studio Phaser Lock Interactive released in April the new VR real-time strategy game Final Assault in early access for Oculus Rift, HTC Vive and Windows VR glasses on Steam and in the Oculus Store. The VR title plays in the setting of the Second World War and allows you to either play in a single player in a campaign or to compete in PvP with other players.
Final Assault – Real-time VR strategy for Oculus Rift, HTC Vive and Windows VR glasses
Final Assault was first introduced at the OC5 last year. Within the VR title, players may choose between two parties to go to war in strategic battles on various maps. The real-time strategy game takes place in the setting of the Second World War and allows you to compete either as a German Achsenkräfte or Allies.
Both parties have their own units as well as pros and cons to give you different tactical options. So are various ground troops, vehicles and air forces available.
Gameplay-technically, the strategy game is based on MOBA relatives, such as League of Legends, by automated units in different lanes on the map spawn. These then move purposefully towards the enemy base to meet on the way there on defense towers and objects. However, as a player you decide which units appear at which points in order to have a tactical influence on the course of the match.
In addition, battles take place on secondary locations, which require your attention. Thus, trench battles are carried out at strategically important points to give you a positional advantage. For example, taking a protected area may allow you to set up artillery units. In addition, there are randomized air drops that contain useful objects and money.
Since the game was designed from the ground up for VR, you can use drag-and-drop to control your units. If you have the necessary resources, you can remove the desired units from a tablet-like list and position them at the desired location on the map by hand. Then by finger wiping give her the appropriate direction before.
The release will feature three campaign levels and a multiplayer PvP mode with cross-platform support. A total of three different cards should be available for this initially, with these to be expanded to 14.
Final Assault will be available in early access for Oculus Rift, HTC Vive and Windows VR glasses on Steam and the Oculus Store as of April. A PSVR version with cross-platform support will also follow later.
