Die Steel Wool Studios haben mit "The Horus Heresy: Betrayal at Calth" das erste VR-Spiel im Universum von "Warhammer 40.000" angekündigt, wobei auch ohne VR-Brille gespielt werden kann. Es werden HTC Vive und Oculus Rift unterstützt. Der Titel basiert auf dem gleichnamigen Brettspiel und setzt auf rundenbasierte Kämpfe. Neben dem Mehrspieler-Modus wird eine Singleplayer-Kampagne in Aussicht gestellt. In diesem Jahr startet der Steam-Early-Access.

Features

  • Original Horus Heresy Narrative: Set in the 31st Millennium on the planet of Calth, Magos Ohmnal Sarc commands a unit of Ultramarines. When he discovers corrupted data in the data stream, Sarc is confronted with a faction of aggressive Word Bearers and a devastating plot of corruption within the Imperium that introduces untold threats and schemes against the Emperor. The original story was written by Black Library author Rob Sanders.
  • A Living Battlefield: While players decide on their next action or wait on their opponent, the world around them continues to animate and fight.
  • Multiplayer Skirmish Mode: Players can choose between the Ultramarines and Word Bearers factions. Units include Legionaries, Veteran Legionaries, Sergeants and a cast of characters armed with everything from bolters to melta guns to assault cannons. More character classes will be added up until the final game release.
  • Cross-Platform Multiplayer Matchmaking: Play on either gaming PC, HTC Vive or Oculus Rift. As a turn-based game, PC verses VR provides no gameplay advantages, only differing user experiences of the world.

Play In VR

  • VR Mode: The “human-scale” view of Space Marine combat gives the player the feeling of being on the battlefield in a world first VR game set in the Warhammer 40,000 universe.

Coming During Early Access

  • Single-Player Campaign: 24 combat scenarios exploring the conflict between two factions of Space Marines, divided into 5 Acts. The story progresses linearly and each level presents unique challenges intertwined with the drama of the narrative.
  • More Unit Types: Terminators, Dreadnoughts and new unit abilities.
  • Single Player Skirmish verse AI: Skirmish against the AI on multi-player maps.
  • More Multiplayer Maps: As each new story act is released new multi-player maps will be released as well.

  • Maybe a few surprises!
