You know, the MMORPG genre doesn’t really get many virtual reality games, which is a shame – who doesn’t want the holodeck? But there are a handful of MMOs that have refused to give up on VR, and one of them is Orbus, or OrbusVR: Reborn as its final version is more properly known. Today, indie studio AdAlternum announced not only a hard release date for the game – April 23rd – but the fact that it’ll be a launch game for the Oculus Quest.
“As of April 1, the servers for the original game went offline, giving the development team time to focus all their efforts on fine-tuning the expansion before its launch. Part of that fine-tuning involves preparing the game to function on Oculus Quest. The Quest, an all-in-one virtual reality gaming system, will be available later this spring and is slated to have 50 titles at launch – among which OrbusVR: Reborn is proud to number.”
As we’ve previously noted, Reborn is an overhaul of the original Kickstarted buy-to-play VR game with a bunch of new expansion content bundled in too. It’s a free upgrade for everyone who already owns the title.
