‘Frostpoint VR: Proving Grounds’ to Release on PC VR December 1st

Thirdverse and inXile Entertainment today announced that Frostpoint VR: Proving Grounds, the upcoming team-based multiplayer shooter, is officially launching on PC VR headsets next month.

Frostpoint VR is bringing its 10v10-player shooting action to Steam and the Oculus PC Store on December 1st, which includes support for Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, Valve Index, and Windows VR headsets.

The game includes a point capture mode called ‘Conquest’ and Team Deathmatch, but you’ll find that the game’s expansive maps are peppered with biomechanical ‘Reclaimers’ for some PvE chaos.

We went hands-on during the game’s beta access period last month, and although at the time it was still lacking optimization for min-spec machines, it undeniably had good bones in the gameplay department, which we hope are even better a few weeks later.

We had our reservations in terms of overall draw, and whether it would stand the test of time after the glut of launch day players slowly dips down, but again, there’s no telling.

Thankfully, the studios ran a ‘Play to Own’ scheme with the open beta, so hopefully, it will overcome the player pool stumbling block that so many other multiplayer-only VR titles have faced in the past.

To celebrate launch, Thirdverse and inXile are also throwing in a competition starting December 1st, where you’ll be able to compete in a multi-week Leaderboard Challenge event.

The top five winners will get a load of prizes, including a GeForce RTX 3080 graphics card from NVIDIA, an Oculus Quest 2, Amazon gift cards, and Frostpoint VR merch.

What is 360 VR Video?

360 video is a video that is recorded in all directions at the same time with multiple cameras. The videos are stitched together either internally in the camera or externally using special software.

It then forms one spherical video that is controlled by the viewer, enabling them to look up, down, right or left at their discretion.

Is 360 Video Virtual Reality?

I want you to be the judge.
