    Vanishing Realms Is Still In Development, Just ‘Ridiculously Slowly’

    If you thought Budget Cuts took a long time to come out then spare a thought for Vanishing Realms: Rite of Steel. Many would say that this HTC Vive launch title still has some of the best combat in VR, but we haven’t seen much from it of late.

    Rest assured, though, Vanishing Realms is still in development, just very slowly. Developer Indimo Labs recently confirmed as much on the game’s Steam Community hub, telling one fan that “additional content for the game is still in the works, albeit ridiculously slowly.” For now, the game remains in Early Access.

    Vanishing Realms was one of the first games to deliver on the fantasy of engaging sword combat in VR. You travel through a mythical world, doing battle with orcs and more by making sure to block incoming attacks with a shield then swiping back in response. The game also features great ranged archery combat and magical powers. It made great use of VR’s positional tracking in combat. In fact, we’d still recommend you play it even today.

    Sadly, there’s not much of it right now, with just two playable chapters in the Early Access build. Some challenge modes do pad out how long you can spend with the game but, overall, it’s in need of more content.

    The last major update for the game was in September 2017 where a host of new features were added (though a smaller patch did tweak some aspects last January). Chapter 3 is expected to arrive as DLC, though Indimo isn’t ready to provide any estimations of when it will arrive just yet. Keep those fingers crossed for now.

    Zero Caliber Looks Like A Polished Tactical VR Shooter With Co-Op

    There’s more than enough VR shooters to go around these days, but VR shooters that actually look and play like something you’d expect from a 2018 videogame are a little harder to come by. Zero Caliber looks to be one such game, though.

    This new tactical shooter from A-Tech Cybernetic developer XREAL Games is set to arrive in Early Access on September 13th. As you can see from the trailer below, the game looks pretty solid from both a visuals and gameplay perspective.

    Zero Caliber is set in a near-future United States in which drinkable water is in short supply and people fight for control of it. You play as a soldier trying to maintain order in an escalating war of mercenaries. The game’s set to offer a full campaign with co-op support in which you use highly customizable weapons to fight off enemies. You’ll need to master reloading techniques for each individual weapon, pull the pin on grenades, and physically duck behind cover.

    It sounds very promising, then, let’s just hope it can deliver. The first release for Zero Caliber will include the first half of the game’s campaign complete with co-op support. As Early Access progresses, XREAL plans to add the second half of the story along with more weapons and additional missions designed specifically for co-op play. The developer plans to launch the full game in early 2019, though specific headsets haven’t been confirmed yet.

    Skyrim VR Livestream: Hunting Vampires With The Dawnguard

    Skyrim VR has been out on PC for a few months now. During the first few weeks of its release we livestreamed it a lot, featured a ton of mods, and even did a detailed comparison with over 100 mods installed. Now we’re returning to the world of Tamriel for some adventure once again.

    For today’s stream we aren’t going to feature any complex mods or showcase any advanced features of the game. Instead, we are easing back into things with some simple vampire hunting by way of the Dawnguard DLC that comes standard with all PC and PSVR copies of Skyrim VR.

    We’ll be livestreaming Skyrim VR on PC using Rift with Touch starting in about a half hour as of the time this is being published (which means we’ll start at approximately 2:30PM PT) and aim to last for about an hour or so. We’re going to use Restream to hit both YouTube and Twitch at the same time! You can see the full stream embedded right here down below once it’s up:

    You can see our archived streams all in this one handy Livestream playlist over on the official UploadVR YouTube channel (which you should totally subscribe to by the way). We’re also using our Twitch channel more too.

    Let us know which games you want us to livestream next and what you want to see us do, specifically, in Skyrim VR for PC. Comment with feedback down below!
