MMORPG ‘OrbusVR: Reborn’ Expansion to Launch Soon, Quest Support Confirmed for Spring 2019

5

Orbus Online, the indie studio behind OrbusVR, announced that their first expansion ‘Reborn’ now has an official street date. The studio also released word that users will be able to jump into the game on Quest “later this spring.”

OrbusVR is a made-for-VR MMORPG that launched into Early Access on Steam (Vive, Rift) and the Oculus Store (Rift) in December 2017. With the launch of OrbusVR: Reborn however, the game will officially be heading out of Early Access on April 23rd, 2019.

As a virtual reality-native, OrbusVR delivers VR users many of the classic MMORPG conventions like multiplayer dungeon raids, world bosses, several combat classes, and missions across a large, open-world.

Set 20 years after the defeat of the Order, the ‘Reborn’ expansion is set to add a bevy of new classes, enemies, dungeons and raids; the art direction has also substantially changed, taking on a look ostensibly influenced by The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

All existing owners will receive ‘Reborn’ for free, although if you were looking to get in before the eventual price hike, it appears both the Steam and Oculus Store versions are currently unavailable until launch later this month.

OrbusVR is set to be one of the first of many games to offer cross-buy through the Oculus Store, meaning if you already bought the game for Rift, you’ll be able to jump in for free on Quest (and vice versa). Thankfully the game is going to be offer cross-platform play between Rift, Quest, Vive, and other OpenVR headsets.

Currently the original game is no longer playable, as the studio has moved to a ‘Reborn’ open beta which continues from now until April 8th for users that already own the base game. The official launch of ‘Reborn’ is set for 1PM ET on April 23rd (local time here).

    They must’ve increased the performance of the game alot if it will run on quest. Or maybe they will bring settings way down. I have a 1080ti and when I played the original it didnt run perfectly on high settings.

    Cant wait to try this new version

      That seems to be a lot of what they did under the hood. I noticed a huge improvement in performance between the old orbus and reborn, with a big improvement in visuals too. Hopefully they’ve got lots of headroom for many future upsetsu
