Alvo, the long-awaited team VR shooter ostensibly modeled after Valve’s CS:GO, is officially headed to PSVR on PS4 and PS5 on next week.

The game, which was announced back in 2017, initially aimed to launch in 2018. The wait is almost over for PSVR owners though, as the game is headed to PS consoles on April 13th, 2021.

Alvo is set to launch on PSVR for $40, however for the first two weeks after launch the game will benefit from a 25% introductory PS+ discount.

Check out some fresh gameplay in the release date reveal video below:

Developing studio Mardonpol says the game won’t feature any PS5 graphical improvements at launch, however it’s on the to-do list.

The game’s release on Steam is set to come alongside its Oculus Store launch, which will include support for Oculus Quest and Oculus Rift. There’s no clear launch date for those platforms yet, however Mardonpol says it should arrive sometime in June, including cross-play.

  • Why does Alvo sound like Pavlov with a couple missing and rearranged letters, and is basically a very similar game? odd…

  • Counter-Crap didn’t invent the military shooter and it’s never done anything special. It’s the wonder-bread of shooters, a nothing mod that rode the coattails of Half Life. Aspiring to be like it might as well be code for “Automatically Underwhelming”.

    We already have at least 3 games exactly like that.
    People who want a military sim are already playing pavlov / contractors / onward, and have absolutely no reason to want another one.

      Well, on PSVR we have nothing similar.. Firewall ZH is the only military online shooter but that is objective based and plays a lot slower, it has more in common with something like Rainbow Six, no reapawning and a heavy focus on gadgets. FW is great and all but we need something fresh by now. Personally i can’t wait, i played the beta and it is fast and frantic, jumping and ladder climbing is present and it generally plays like a dream, especially with the Aim Controller. I understand that for PCVR there are multiple alternatives and therefore it’s nothing special, but it’s a godsend for PSVR if you’re into online shooters! This one fills a huge gap and can only get a healthy community for years to come..
