OrbusVR, the indie VR MMORPG, is now on Oculus Home, allowing for crossplay between it and the Steam version which launched last month.
The Steam version of OrbusVR has had support for both Vive and Rift when it started out in Early Access in December, but now Rift users looking to keep their games all in one place can get in on the quest-driven MMO too.
The result of a successful Kickstarter back in March 2017 which garnered $34,000, OrbusVR is shaping up to be one of the first ‘native VR’ MMORPGs to combine traditional sword and sorcery elements like quests and dungeons in a cooperative, social VR space.
Like most MMOs, you’ll need to team up with others to take down World Bosses and clear out the game’s many dungeons (hence the social VR aspect). Presenting an open world environment, OrbusVR promises “dozens of hours of quests following an intriguing story.”
Although admittedly less than ‘massive’ at the moment—Steam Spy reported a couple hundred hourly concurrent users before the its launch on Oculus Home—the game’s first content expansion is due soon, which will include a new World Boss and an end-game dungeon called the ‘Tradu Mines’. According to the lead developer Riley Dutton, the Tradu Mines “have been tuned so that they can be accomplished by a group of Level 20 characters with Rare-level gear.”
