FINAL ASSAULT: Phaser Lock Interactive launches next generation real time strategy game hits Virtual Reality in Early Access
AUSTIN, Texas (PRWEB) March 19, 2019
Phaser Lock Interactive, the award-winning virtual reality game studio, creators of VR games Final Approach, Final Approach Pilot Edition and Twisted Arrow, today announced the early launch of their fourth title, a highly anticipated Virtual Reality Real Time Strategy game, Final Assault. Available on March 21st on Oculus, SteamVR and Viveport for $29.99 (early launch discount $19.99)
This new and exciting approach to the classic RTS gaming genre introduces new and intuitive game mechanics that offer a compelling and immersive gameplay that can only exist in VR. Final Assault is an action packed, WWII themed RTS allowing the player to choose between US or German armies. Players tower over the battlefield as war rages around them in 360 degrees. Take command of jeeps, tanks, and artillery in massive ground battles as the skies erupt in bullets, flak and dynamic dog fights. Execute air strikes and massive bombing runs as you advance your troops towards enemy territory, destroying everything in your path. The player controls their units by drawing paths for precise, direct combat while managing their moba style creep lanes for added support. Strategic decisions have consequences that require quick thinking and fast VR reflexes. With incredibly detailed environments and maps, players are even more fully immersed into the world of Virtual Reality.
According to Phaser Lock Interactive CEO Michael Daubert, “VR is an unexplored territory, allowing us to take a unique approach to the RTS genre. We are focusing on what RTS game play works best in VR, and building the core mechanics around that. I feel that we have something here that will resonate with RTS and strategy fans, along with the vr community. It is exciting to explore the idea of creating a new RTS genre in VR.”
Final Assault also revolves around the PVP community. It offers cross-platform action between the Oculus and HTC headsets with a goal of adding other comparable headsets throughout the year. Players can match up against other players using local or global servers. “Our challenge from the beginning is making sure we have a user base that can populate the PVP que,” says Daubert. “With that in mind we have made PVP accessible throughout the game modes at anytime to minimize wait times for a matchup to happen.”
In early access, Final Assault offers all PVP maps and divisions, along with early stages of the story and skirmish campaigns. Other systems will come on line as the game gets closer to its launch date in April.
“Being able to immerse yourself into such a dynamic environment with epic sky and ground battle with your friends truly takes advantage of the power of VR,” Daubert mentions. “And the art style and game play take you back to your childhood, having your toys come to life in front of you and under your control. You just have to jump in to really understand the full immersion and fun factor of what we have developed with Final Assault.”
