FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

MILWAUKEE, WISCONSIN, October 20th, 2016. Independent game developer Guild Software has released their long-running MMORPG, Vendetta Online, for the Samsung Gear VR. Owners of these devices may now drop into the 3D cockpits of their own fighters and capships, all while trading, mining, or battling their way across a vast galaxy.

"We're thrilled to be bringing our immersive MMO experience to a mobile VR platform," said John Bergman, CEO of Guild Software. "By leveraging both integrated Voice Chat, as well as Voice-to-Text, our goal is to make the VR experience as engaging socially as it is visually."

Vendetta Online's debut marks the first time a persistent-world MMORPG has launched on a mobile VR platform, adding to the game's existing support for Windows, Mac, Linux, Android, iOS, and the Oculus Rift. With all platforms participating in the same unified galaxy, and seamless transition between them, the title delivers serious, PC-grade gaming across devices both large and small.
