When playing a VR game, your success sometimes comes down to chance. If you want to master a game, though, whether you’re a VR veteran or new to the immersive digital realm, it will take some actual know-how.
It’s true – practice makes perfect. But it never hurts to get some specialty tips and tricks to get you through the toughest parts of the experience. And the team responsible for developing Hubris VR are all about sharing every tidbit to make sure you slay your gameplay and come out on top.
Dive headset-first into a unique and colorful sci-fi adventure packed with a balance of FPS action and survival tactics. Hubris VR aims to pique your interest from the beginning of your journey and is designed to captivate through seamless locomotion, challenging tasks, and immersive battles with no-good aliens, wildlife, droids, and humanoids.
Change the game difficulty at any point in the experience – virtual reality is about enjoying yourself, not breaking your stride with too many challenging requirements.
Choose easy mode if you prefer to relax and go with the flow. You’ll encounter fewer firefights and have the opportunity to explore to your heart’s content. Alternatively, if you enjoy jumping in and discovering what happens next, the expert difficulty will be right up your alley.
Choosing your weapons wisely is of utmost importance to your success. Every gun you select comes with its own set of strengths and ranges. Hubris’ handgun is ideal for long-range combat and will help you pick off enemies in the distance with precision.
The assault rifle is perfect for mid-range shots, and its rapid-fire release quickly overwhelms your foes. Grab your trusty shotgun for devastating results and destroy any enemy unfortunate enough to cross your path.
When it comes to mastering Hubris VR, timing is everything. The game’s advanced VR mechanics allow you to manipulate your weapon to gain a strategic advantage. Hold down the trigger and keep your shot loading until the last moment. You’ll blast away alien enemies and make them regret getting in your way.
Since each weapon offers different protection, the ability to quickly swap between firearms is necessary. Simply double-tap on the weapon equip button and utilize your inventory efficiently. And for an added level of protection, be sure to use your context-sensitive backpack – regardless of the situation, your pack will always offer the best item for the task at hand.
When trying to avoid alien fire, Hubris’ climbing mechs will allow you to scale buildings and provide much-needed cover for those intense shootouts. Don’t forget about your Hover Bike, an essential tool while exploring the world of Hubris. Two things to remember – the right trigger makes you accelerate while the left trigger will slow you down.
In some games, your interactions with NPCs are boring and don’t offer much support to your experience. With Hubris VR, each conversation with the locals is meant to help you navigate the game’s challenges. So, keep your eyes and ears open when conversing with any character.
It’s survival of the fittest, literally, in Hubris. The world contains hidden treasures and important resources; a thorough explorer reaps the most rewards. Stay aware of your surroundings, and check out every room you see because it’s bound to be packed with bonus items.
Your loft house gives you downtime to recharge your energy, and it’s pertinent that you make meals with a futuristic printer that produces your meals. These specialties will grant you passive recovery when you’re in the thick of a battle.
The VR action-adventure game is available for Meta Quest (with cross-buy available), PlayStation, and Steam, so head over to your preferred platform and pick up this title.
