More about Cradle of Sins VR Launching in Early Access Q4 2020:

Cradle of Sins is a strategy focused first-person Multiplayer Online Battle Arena game developed exclusively for VR. Featuring a diverse and exciting world and real depth of gameplay, we’ve built an immersive competitive experience that’s different every time you play.

The game is played in matches between two teams of three players with each team defending their own separate Altar on the map. Each of the players independently controls a powerful character. The game features 10 unique characters at release, each of which has their own unique weapons, abilities, and upgrades. Different weapons ranging from swords, crossbows, shields, staffs, and powerful crystals. Players have a passive income of gold and get rewards for killing enemies across the map. This gold can be used to buy weapons and upgrades to successfully battle the opposing team's character in player versus player combat. A team wins by being the first to destroy a large structure located in the opposing team's base.

Platforms: HTC Vive, Oculus Rift, Valve Index, Mixed Reality
