Incuvo’s VR adaptation of its popular open world survival game Green Hell is getting a three-part DLC that’s said to bring a bunch of new content to the game, which includes new story, gameplay mechanics and more. It’s also set to get the long-awaited multiplayer mode at some point too.

Called ‘Spirits of Amazonia’, the three-part DLC doesn’t have a release window yet, however Incuvo says it’s currently testing the long-awaited multiplayer update now, which will allow four players to play in co-op mode.

“We know that this is taking a long time, however, we want to ensure that we take the time necessary to thoroughly develop and test the multiplayer mode in order to provide the best possible experience for our players,” the studio says on its Discord (invite link).

The ‘Spirits of Amazonia’ DLCs are said to offer new story, gameplay mechanics, and immersive content. Just what that all entails, we’ll have to wait and see.

Unfortunately, what isn’t included in the updates: crossplay between the VR and flatscreen version of the game, something the studio says isn’t possible since they are fundamentally two different builds. The VR version was built from the ground-up, and not an additional ‘VR mode’ to the original Green Hell like we’ve seen with games like The Forest (2018), which does feature crossplay between PC and VR headsets.

The studio hasn’t mentioned whether it will support crossplay between its various VR platforms, which now includes PSVR 2, Quest 2, and SteamVR headsets.

In the game’s Discord FAQ, Incuvo says crossplay “is still up in the air, but no promise for now.”

    They mentioned coop a year or so ago and thus I’ve been holding off on playing it to “preserve” the experience for coop VR.

    The Forest VR, even with all of its clunkiness, was such a good time as a coop experience, but most of us were new-ish to VR and none of us had played through it in flat already. So it had the benefit of the novelty of both VR and the game itself.

    Recently I played through Sons of the Forest in flat (same group of friends) and while that was good as well, I just don’t see my group of friends replaying it in VR (if another “basic” VR mode ever comes out). I don’t want the same thing to happen with Green Hell.

    However, unfortunately no one in this group of friends really uses VR anymore anyway (they’re waiting for better, less fatiguing hardware) and moreover we’re all kind of fatigued by the game loop of The Forest. Maybe in a year or two VR hardware will have improved enough to make these friends actually want to use it again, and this team will have released the coop version of this game.

      I can’t play flat games anymore, that why I am waiting for Sons of the Forest in VR.
