OrbusVR starts up open alpha on July 28

If you’ve been longing for the chance to play an MMO in VR but haven’t yet been in the closed alpha for OrbusVR, the good news is that you’ll get your chance on Friday. The game’s closed alpha attracted roughly 450 people to test out the game, and it’s moving into open alpha on July 28th. Anyone who registers a free account on the game’s website will be able to step in and play.

Assuming you have a VR headset to handle the game, of course. So maybe not everyone will be there.

If you’ve got your headset and a burning desire to see what the game has on offer in this stage of development, there’s a helpful guide available for getting the game downloaded and installed while first exploring. Players who like what they see are encourage to shell out for the full version, of course, but it’s by no means a requirement if you want to see what the hype is about.

Oh, dear. I am trying my hardest to focus on the game I’m developing but this looks too good to pass up.

This should give you a clue why the Rift dropped its price,

What are the requirements to play the game?
Basically, the same requirements to play any VR game on your headset. You must have an Oculus Rift + Touch, or an HTC Vive. Note that if you are using a Rift, we support 180-degree (front-facing) setups, but the game is really designed for 360-degree (room-scale) setups, so keep that in mind.

My insane sibling bought two Oculus Rifts with the $400 with Touch controllers deal, so I suppose I will be forwarding this information to him.

I love to see developers give VR MMOs a try, but a skill spamming fight system like Orbus has at the moment seems like the wrong way to go.
