Watch: ‘Ancient Amuletor’ Brings Multiplayer VR Tower Defence to PSVR, Launches 27th June


Tower defence title Ancient Amuletor from TiGames is launching for PlayStation VR tomorrow sporting multiplayer co-op and an adorable art style. Here’s a look at the launch trailer.

If you’ve been yearning for a dose of tower defence with friends in virtual reality, Ancient Amuletor is a neat looking new release for PSVR out tomorrow that might suit you down to the ground.

The title pits you as one of four playable characters with unique skillsets – archer, mage, puppeteer and gunner – as you defend your stronghold against waves of delightfully rendered enemies. The gameplay looks a little slight, but I confess to liking the look of the archer’s Panzer Dragoon / Rez style lock-on special attack. The game allows three human player to join each other online

Rendered in Unreal Engine 4, the production design looks great even if the gameplay demonstrated in the trailer seems somewhat simplistic. The game goes on sale via the PlayStation store tomorrow (27th June) for an as yet undisclosed price. I suspect that last detail may be the crucial one as the chance of such a title finding a large enough player base to provide ample online comrades will hinge on an enticing, accessible price.

Nevertheless, if you’re curious you can go online and try the demo which is available on the PlayStation Store right now. Let us know what you think and if you’re considering a purchase.
