‘Warhammer 40,000: Battle Sister’ VR Shooter Coming to Quest in 2020, Trailer Here


At Facebook Connect today a new VR shooter was announced that takes place in the long and storied universe of Warhammer 40,000.

Update (September 19th, 2020): A previous version of this article erroneously stated that Warhammer 40,000: Battle Sister would launch on both Quest and Rift. The game is planned to release only on Quest.

The game, called Warhammer 40,000: Battle Sister, is slated to launch on Quest at some point later this year. The developers Pixel Toys say the narrative-driven shooter will offer both single and multiplayer modes.

In Battle Sister, players don the power armor and wargear of Sister Ophelia, a veteran Sister of Battle. The studio says players will battle through “an epic story where Ophelia searches for her lost twin sister and fights for the future of humanity itself.”

“The immersive experience that VR provides allows fans and new initiates alike to the Warhammer universe alike to experience brutal action gameplay across the majestic and grim expanses of the Warhammer 40,000 universe,” Pixel Toys say.

Battle Sister is said to include iconic wargear such as Bolters, Plasma Pistols, Flamers, Las Rifles, Power Swords, and Chainswords. Powerful abilities, such as Acts of Faith, will let players do things like slow time, create a force field, and push back enemies and objects.

Pixel Toys is also known for its work on flatscreen titles Warhammer 40,000: Freeblade, Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Realm War, Gunfinger, and VR game franchise Drop Dead.

    Are they going to make games for boys anymore or are we just going to be relegated to evil cannon fodder to be killed by strong fierce women or weak silly best friends that need to be saved due to our testosterone fueled stupidity?

      Are you kidding me? The Warhammer universe has tons of content and games already based solely around men, and this is a genuinely cool faction – yet you’re crying because you have to play as a woman?

    • Oh wow! I hope you are joking. If that’s the case, well done :D

  • The trailer looks cool!

  • I was wondering why the enemies seemed janky and the backgrounds looked simplistic, then I noticed it said, “Quest”.

    Drop Dead was the best Gear VR game and one of the better Quest games.
