War Robots is rolling out into the VR space with War Robots VR: The Skirmish, arriving on Steam today. This new virtual reality freebie puts you in the pilot seat of your very own mech as you explore a cyberpunk city that’s been cast into turmoil.
The Skirmish is a single player mission, as opposed to War Robots’ popular mobile titles that pitted teams of mechs against each other in exciting third-person multiplayer combat. Instead, The Skirmish tasks you with exploring a post-apocalyptic city in first-person in order to unveil your own purpose.
You’ll have to battle imposing enemy mechs along the way in exciting gun-driven combat. Use your powerful Gatling guns to do heavy damage to your foes. You’ll be aided by useful monitors within your mech that give you readings on your surroundings.
While mechs may not be known for the speed, the game’s short teaser shows slick combat well suited for hand-to-hand combat between two towering robots. Pixonic worked hard to ensure that combat felt smooth and realistic, well-tuned to heavy mech fights.
War Robots VR: The Skirmish is free on Steam and Oculus Store, and you can play it with an HTC Vive or Oculus Rift headset.
