Boston-based Metro VR Studios (MVRS) unveiled a trailer for its inaugural game “Orion13,” a first-person, hack-and-slash VR adventure. Marking the first installment of an action-packed trilogy, "Orion13" will be available for download on Feb. 13, through the Oculus and Steam stores.
The trailer offers a sneak peek at the fast-paced, futuristic, neon-soaked world where robots rule a dystopian society. Players wield a sword as the newly sentient combat robot, Orion13, who believes her memory implants are her own. She has just one mission: find her way home.
Players will have to battle their way through enemy robots in an immersive VR experience that features multiple levels of gameplay, interactive puzzles, and an original electronic soundtrack interwoven with a cinematic story arc.
“We set out to create a compelling action-adventure VR game aimed at hardcore gamers like ourselves,” said Scott Matalon, founder and president, MVRS. “We designed it as a game we wanted to play and focused on key elements we felt were missing from the VR marketplace: open-world locomotion and fast-paced action. That’s what will set Orion13 apart from other titles available today. Now that it’s done, I’m excited to finally give fellow gamers their first glimpse of what they can expect come Feb. 13.”
Orion13 will be available for the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift headsets.
