STOCKHOLM June 10, 2019 – If the wait is driving you nuts, you’ll be glad to know that Resolution Games today announced more details behind its new multiplayer virtual reality (VR) party game, “Acron: Attack of the Squirrels!”. The studio also released a sneak peek trailer - viewable here - in anticipation of the upcoming game along with more information about the characters, supported platforms and additional game details.

 

Here’s what you need to know:

 

  • Premise: The seeds of life are under attack! It’s up to you and your friends to protect them or steal them - depending if you take on the role of an extraordinarily protective tree or as one of several crafty yet thieving squirrels - in the new cross-platform party game from Resolution Games. A game that’s at its best when played as a couch party game together with a group of friends, “Acron: Attack of the Squirrels!” is both competitive and cooperative in nature for players across VR and mobile devices. One player in VR takes on the role of the tree that is the sole protector of the ‘seeds of life’ who must use the hand controllers to grab and hurl wood chunks, boulders and sticky sap to keep the squirrels at bay. Meanwhile, two to seven frenemies are invited to join in the fun on iOS and Android devices to take on one of four identities from a gang of rebellious squirrels that will do anything to steal the Golden Acorns and take them safely back to their home base using their unique abilities.
 
  • Launch date: Summer 2019
 
  • Headsets: Oculus Quest, Oculus Rift and HTC Vive
