Echo Combat, Ready At Dawn’s upcoming shooter expansion to the newly renamed Echo VR, has had several open betas since the zero-G combat game was announced at last year’s Connect. Now, the studio has revealed that Echo Combat is launching in November along with a few new features that users can try out right now in the latest open beta.
The game, a Rift exclusive, is slated to launch on November 15th. While Echo Arena is free,the disc game launched last year with Lone Echo (2017), Echo Combat will be priced at $10 at launch.
Up until now, Echo Combat has featured only a single map and single game mode, a payload game that requires one team to escort a giant flamingo along a predefined track while the other team tries to stop them.
The team-based zero-G shooter now includes a new map dubbed ‘Combustion’ and a new ‘Capture Point’ mode. Both Echo Combat’s new map and mode are free to try during the open beta, which takes place between September 26th – 29th. You can download the game and start playing now.
