Mil-sim FPS fans have a something to be excited about this April. Naviworks recently announced that its upcoming game, Battle X: Birth of the Alliance, will be launching into early access April 30. While the game is releasing as a PC game, it will feature VR support.
Naviworks are no strangers to VR or military simulation software. The company has over 10 years of experience in everything from industrial VR training simulations, to military-grade training software. It will be interesting to see how this translates into the first entertainment VR experience the company has produced.
Looking for Fun and Realism
Battle X: Birth of the Alliance is a first-person shooter at its core. The single-player campaign will pit players against a private army that is backed up with bioengineered soldiers. Armed with real-world weapons, you must stop the rogue elements from releasing their mutant pathogen and save the world. However, there is no need to face this threat alone, the game features co-op gameplay as well.
A training mode will also be included with the game, along with a 16 player PVP mode that draws from real world military training. In “Explosive War” teams of 8 players will fight it out as one team tries to blow up objectives, while the other defuses and defends.
Look for Battle X: Birth of the Alliance on Steam early access starting April 30. The game supports PC, Vive, and Rift but no word yet on Windows Mixed Reality support or a possible PSVR release. We will update you on a price as information becomes available.
