The critically-acclaimed and all-around-fun zero-G space esport Echo Arena is getting more gameplay modes as Echo Combat was announced today at Facebook’s Oculus Connect conference in San Jose, California.
As Oculus’ fastest title to hit $1 million in sales, it’s no surprise developer Ready At Dawn would want to continue to expand the game and the universe. While a brief teaser trailer was shown today, not much was revealed about Echo Combat, but the tagline “zero-G combat takes flight” evokes images of guns and other weaponry being added to the mix. As Head of Content Studios Jason Rubin put it, “Echo Combat is a new multiplayer, zero-gravity, first-person shooter expansion to Echo Arena.” We also learned it should be available in 2018, but no price point was disclosed.
In other Echo-universe news, Rubin revealed that there would be more Lone Echo coming soon, as the story of Jack and Captain Liv would continue. Again, no details were shared, only the cryptic “wait for a big announcement shortly.”
We’re at Oculus Connect 4 for the next couple of days, so be sure to check back with UploadVR for more from the show.
