Somehow we’ve not covered Frostpoint VR: Proving Grounds yet even in passing, so with its closed beta beginning next week, now’s a good time. The game is a multiplayer shooter from inXile planned for the Rift, Vive, and Valve Index too, and it’s doing something few online games have done: take players to Antarctica. Hence the whole “frostpoint” motif.
“Frostpoint VR: Proving Grounds is a team-based multiplayer shooter that pits two sides against each other in high intensity PvP game modes. Set in a dilapidated military training base in Antarctica where strange biomechanical creatures now roam, each team will need to gear up and set out to dominate the opposing team. Over a dozen highly-detailed weapons can be brought into battle in a unique and beautiful sci-fi experience, where the other players aren’t the only enemies.”
The beta is slated to run through Steam from August 24th through September 4th, and in fact you can sign up right now, then go cross your fingers you get in during one of the waves.
