Fast Travel Games and Trebuchet today announced that Broken Edge, the multiplayer VR sword fighting game, is set to launch on Quest 2 and SteamVR headsets on November 17th.

Developed by Trebuchet and published by Fast Travel Games, Broken Edge is a multiplayer fantasy sword-dueling action VR game where you choose your fighter and go head-to-head against another player online.

Check out the trailer from earlier this summer, which shows off some of the game’s melee combat, the different classes and their respective weapons:

Playable classes include the barbarian, duelist, knight, samurai, and tyrant—all of which have their own unique weapons and combat style. The studio says these are just the starting classes, and has already revealed a new character to the lineup called the Persian, who wields a scimitar.

“Our team has worked diligently to craft Broken Edge’s lineup of iconic swordfighters and techniques. Mastering these provides a visceral sword fighting experience,” said Guillaume Perreault Roy, Game Creator at Trebuchet. “Soon, players can become masters of the sword and compete against real opponents for a top spot on the global leaderboard.”

Broken Edge is coming to Quest 2 and SteamVR headsets on November 17th, priced at $10. You can wishlist it now on Quest and Steam.

    Looks super boring…and i have been looking forward to a good sword fighting game. this doesnt look like it

    • CIR

      Style is at least unique at first glance.

      I think all VR sword interactions suffer due to the lack of true feedback or resistance. Visuals, sounds and rumble can only get you so far…

      It’s a shame – there hasn’t been one stellar VR game released this year – even the sequel to I expect you to die was so disappointing…

      • VR5

        Wanderer, Tale of Onogoro, The Last Clockwinder and Red Matter 2 all were stellar in my book. Tentacular, Cosmonious High, Ruins Magus and Zenith were fun too.

    • NL_VR

      people who tested it said it was suprisingly really fun.

  • Nick

    Another dud to set vr back another notch – what the hell happened after half life alyx….

    • ViRGiN


      Alyx is by far the best vr game ever made. Love you Gabe. Please unban me from Steam and I will forgive you.

      Mini quest games are killing VR on the long term. It makes vr look like it’s shit.

      • ViRGiN

        you guys have VR in your foster homes?

      • dimiav

        Funny that you are again trashing steam while the state of VR gaming is the same on other VR platforms.

        The PCVR gamer at least has more freedom and more options compared to people who restrict themselves to dedicated VR platformconsoles

    • NL_VR

      Then just do t buy it and dont play it. Its simple

      • Nick

        Yeah that’s the problem – no one is going to play it and it’ll be just another reason for the masses to continue ignoring vr as a legit gaming method

        • NL_VR

          no thats not correct

          • Nick

            Just you wait and see – I’ve been closely watching the market trends for 6 years now and AAA content did the best job of bringing customers with the exception of a few mainstays like best saber but you know better than me I suppose….

          • NL_VR

            Well i just watch the stores. There are games coming out almost all the time.
            And have you even played this game.

  • Xron

    Seems interesting.

  • Ad

    Seems like Ironlights.

  • Mateusz Pawluczuk

    Looks similar to Ironlights. Im guessing its strictly multiplayer. Would be nice to have a single player campaign.
