It’s been a long, long wait for one of VR’s best-looking mech battlers, Vox Machinae, but patient fans will soon be rewarded.
The below trailer for the game, which developer Space Bullet released earlier this week, confirms that it’s set to launch in Early Access this fall. More specifically, the Steam page for the game says it’s launching ‘early fall’, so we can possibly even expect it within the next few weeks. It’ll come with optional support for the Oculus Rift, HTC Vive and Windows VR headsets but it can also be played on standard monitors, too.
Vox Machinae gives players the chance to hop into the cockpit of war machines and head into battles on alien terrain in single-player and online matches. In VR the game makes full use of motion controllers, allowing you to operate a robust UI with your hands.
Space Bullet says the game should be in Early Access for around six months. It’ll launch with Deathmatch, Salvage and Stockpile game modes as well as a free-for-all mode. Five mechs will be available to choose from with 10 weapons to select and five maps to play on. During the course of the pre-release phase the developer intends to add new abilities as well as more weapons, mechs, modes and maps. There will also be improvements to enemy AI and a hub world to hang out with friends in.
