It is hard to beat that feeling you get when you jump into a fighter jet and set out to do some major damage to an enemy. The idea is nothing new in gaming, but we have come a long ways from arcade games like 1942 and Tiger-Heli, to get our weapons of war fix. Muddy Pixel’s flagship VR game, Worlds at War, is showing us a new take on this classic genre, through the awesome power of VR.
Some of you might remember this title hitting early access on Steam back in March. Well, now it has made it into the Oculus Store. While it still retains its early access status, this game is showing some very positive support from gamers. With any luck, the extra market space will keep the community growing and giving feedback. Something the developers over at Muddy Pixel are all about.
Boats, Planes, and Choppers
If this is your first-time hearing about Worlds at War, buckle up. Alien forces have decimated Earth. All that remains to combat this ongoing onslaught is a small carrier-group that now roams the ocean. Luckily, this ragtag group is made of fighter pilots and crew members that have the skills to put up one hell of a fight.
As one such pilot, you have access to fighter jets, helicopters, and even attack boats. You will need to figure out what weapon of war best suits each attack made by the invaders. Thankfully, you get a free flight mode that lets you get your feet wet before jumping into the endless horde mode.
The developers are updating the game fairly regularly and seem to be taking player feedback to heart. They have already begun to roll out joystick support as an alternative to using a gamepad. Something many players will no doubt enjoy. You can check out Worlds at War for yourself for $16.99.
