Labrodex Studios, a Long Island-based VR/AR studio, today announced the first episode of their upcoming VR shooter, Scraper: First Strike, now has official launch dates for all major VR headsets.

The game will be available for purchase on Oculus Rift, HTC Vive and Windows VR headsets on November 21st, priced at $30. A PSVR version is slated to release on December 18th.

Scraper: First Strike is the first of five episodes, all of which are planned to release in a final version targeting next-gen consoles in 2020. Based on the world created by Jim Ivon, the sci-fi shooter takes place in 2076 and begins right where the prequel novel ends, which was written by Ryder Windham. Taking place in the futuristic megacity of New Austin, you battle renegade robots in high-rise skyscraper complexes to save humanity.

Climbing aboard a hover chair-like mech, called a POD, you blast through different classes of baddies with plenty of weapons upgrades to craft along the way with dropped enemy loot.

Labrodex is also announcing a free DLC soundtrack of original music created by award-winning composer Winifred Phillips, produced by Winnie Waldron. Phillips has composed music for several games, including Assassin’s Creed III: Liberation, God of War, and several of the LittleBigPlanet series games. You can register for the 13-track album online at the Scraper Network. Access to the soundtrack will release when the game launches next month.

    It better be more than a linear shooter because the VR market is so saturated with these games. $30 doesnt sound too terrible but I guess it depends on replayability and length of the chapters.

      game lenght / price is the final task for me when I have to chhose a game to buy

  • Raz

    Not even a second of gameplay… Are they afraid of showing what the game really looks like?

      Hi Raz, they actually have tons of gameplay. What I love about this company is they are going all out to make a full-featured game, like a PC or console game. They just posted almost an hour yesterday of content here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9zGTrEl0upY

      And here is the combat trailer. Above was just the teaser to get things started. Game looks amazing and has tons of content. https://www.ign.com/videos/2018/10/25/scraper-first-strike-in-game-beta-combat-footage

        That is freaking cool, thanks. I am just suspicious when there is no gameplay in the trailers that’s it.

        • Darcon Wow

          This game is amazing looking. The fact it is travel around where you want, do what you want is super cool. I can’t wait to see this thing. That footage above is on PSVR too! It must look even better on the other platforms.

          • Raz

            Yeah, I am pretty stoked now. I get old Deus Ex vibe from them.

            How come I haven’t heard about the game before?

            They are hyping it pretty late, if they are releasing in December.

            Wonder how that will work for them, not saying it’s a bad strategy, especially because people nowdays have a “squirrel” syndrome.

          • Darcon Wow

            I saw the teaser on Sony a month or so ago. I’m starting to see them on the major sites. Hopefully they go nuts advertising it now lol. There is a new win a free vr headset they just put up on their twitter and FB. Check it out.
