Announced earlier this week, Frostpoint VR: Proving Grounds is a multiplayer team-based shooter developed by inXile Entertainment and published by Thirdverse Inc coming to Virtual Reality on PC later this year. Frostpoint is inXile’s third title of the year, with an unnamed RPG and Wasteland 3 set to release later in the fall. inXile has also previously released VR titles including The Mage’s Tale, a first-person VR dungeon crawler. According to an official press release, the game is 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.”
Combat is entirely PvP based, as players compete against other teams with a dozen detailed-weapons to select from. The trailer shows off some of the combat, with the familiarity of Call of Duty in a snowy sci-fi environment. InXile Entertainment has also confirmed that the game will be server-based, allowing up to 20 players in one game lobby (10v10).
According to the official announcement, an Open Beta has been planned for Frostpoint VR for the near future. Frostpoint will be releasing later this year globally in over 10 different languages for the HTC Vive, Oculus Rift, and Valve Index. No information about a future console version has been announced, but the company will be releasing more social media. More information, including news and future updates about the game, can be found on inXile’s Frostpoint: VR Proving Grounds official website. Any interested are also encouraged on the website to join the official discord, to find out more about the game’s release and upcoming beta.
