Vive Studios and Vertigo Games today announce Skyworld: Kingdom Brawl, a highly competitive, cross-platform multiplayer VR card-battler from the creators of Arizona Sunshine. For the first time, PC VR and standalone VR players will join together as the game launches with full cross-platform support for major VR platforms on April 2, 2019.
From the creators of Arizona Sunshine, set in the Skyworld universe, Skyworld: Kingdom Brawl is an action-packed, real-time multiplayer card-battler that will turn best friends into foes, built exclusively for VR. Unlock, collect and upgrade dozens of cards to build a powerful deck, and watch your cards come to life as you cast spells and summon forces to wipe your enemy off the map. Join a clan, take on opponents from around the globe in regular online tournaments, and claim your place on the global leaderboards. This is no friendly battle… this is war!
“Vertigo Games and Vive Studios have delivered on the VR industry’s desire for a gripping multiplayer game where players can battle friends regardless of their different VR hardware,” said Joel Breton, Vice President, Vive Studios. “We are very excited to be partnering with Vertigo Games to bring Skyworld Kingdom Brawl to the entire VR community.”
“We set out to deliver a consistent, uncompromising cross-platform experience across PC VR and standalone VR hardware with Skyworld: Kingdom Brawl and it’s exciting to see how far we’ve been able to push the devices; from drawing massive numbers of units on screen to delivering awesome combat effects,” said Trevor Blom, Lead Tech at Vertigo Studios.
For those brave enough to set foot in its merciless VR battlegrounds, Skyworld: Kingdom Brawl is headed to GDC San Francisco next month where its highly competitive gameplay will debut in a cross-platform multiplayer hands-on demo on Vive Pro and the Vive Focus with dual 6 degrees of freedom (6dof) controllers in the VR Play Area.
To celebrate today’s reveal of Skyworld: Kingdom Brawl, Vertigo Games launches the original Skyworld VR wargame into Viveport Subscription today.
Skyworld: Kingdom Brawl will launch for HTC Vive (Pro), HTC Vive Focus, Oculus Rift and Windows Mixed Reality headsets on April 2, 2019, followed by a Vive Focus Plus launch later this year.
