Frostpoint VR: Proving Grounds set for PCVR release on December 1st
InXile & Thirdverse's Frostpoint VR: Proving Grounds has finally received a PCVR release date. The game is now set for a December 1st 2020 launch.
We've been covering InXile Entertainment & Thirdverse's new VR multiplayer shooter, Frostpoint VR: Proving Grounds, with some interest since it entered an open beta earlier this year.
Now, the title has finally had an official release date set - December 1st 2020. That's right, in just over one week the VR shooter will launch on PC VR devices, with native support for Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, Valve Index and Windows VR Headsets.
Frostpoint VR is a 10-on-10 multiplayer shooter, featuring expansive maps and multiple game modes. When it releases, it'll be available from Steam and the Oculus PC Store.
The game has had an interesting development cycle which we've been following for some time...
In an interesting move, the developers had launched a "play-to-own" offer, where the the developer gave out 9000 free copies of the game during its three week beta.
Then, in early October, Thirdverse Inc. announced that they had secured over $8.5 million USD in Series A investment - allowing the developer to commit to the expansion of their VR development.
This was particularly impressive given the fact that the company was only founded earlier this year. In less than twelve months, they've gone from start-up to their first mainstream release. That's pretty impressive!
