With Angry Birds VR: Isle of Pigs (2019) fresh out the door, Resolution Games today announced Acron, a new multiplayer game that pits one VR player against a group of local mobile users.

Resolution Games says Acron is expected to launch across several major VR platforms and both iOS and Android devices this summer. The studio hasn’t published screenshots or a trailer yet, so there’s still much to learn about Acron.

Here’s how Resolution describes it:

Through the magic of VR, one player becomes a large, ancient tree that is the sole protector of the ‘seeds of life’ (the Golden Acrons), while the players on mobile take on identities of a gang of rebellious squirrels that band together to strategize on how to best scurry around getting as many nuts as they can. The game will come with multiple levels depicting different nature environments and several characters with various roles for players to become.

The studio says the game is both “competitive and cooperative in nature for players across VR and mobile devices.”

“We’ve always believed that VR is more enjoyable when you can play with your friends and family,” said Tommy Palm, co-founder and CEO of Resolution Games. “ACRON takes that idea even further by allowing players in VR to play with and against opponents on mobile in a social setting. And not only is this game a prime way to introduce people to VR, but I can honestly say this game is the most fun I’ve ever had in VR… and I’ve played a lot of VR games!”

You can follow along with progress on Acron by signing up for updated via the game’s website. While it’s not clear exactly which VR devices will see support, the game’s email sign-up form features a questionnaire denoting the following devices: 

Resolution Games is currently set to launch a number of titles on the upcoming standalone headset Oculus Quest, including Angry Birds VR: Isle of Pigs and Bait!.

      I still remember the time period when I lost my job several months back from my company where I have given too much time and hardwork. I was at no time into programs such as make money “overnight” which afterwards turned out to be marketing promotions techniques in which you should firstly get keen clients after that sell a product to family and friends or anybody to make sure that they will be in your team. This online job has given me liberty to work at home and now I can allocate valuable time with my children and get plenty of spare time to go out on a family travels. This work has provided me an opportunity to make money almost $20,000-$21,000 monthly by doing very easy online job. Go and check out most outstanding work opportunity.>>>>>>>>>>>>> http://inatimes.co.id/1njq0u
