Getting back to the VR games on the Windows Mixed Reality “Games & Entertainment” poster, next up is Eternity Warriors VR, a fully motion-controlled VR spin-off from Glu Mobile’s popular mobile ARPG (action RPG) franchise by a different developer called Vanimals. However, the co-founder of Vanimals originally worked at Glu and is actually the creator of the original Eternity Warriors along with the first sequel, plus I think some of Vanimals’ other devs worked on the franchise too. I was planning on writing a first impressions article but unfortunately I haven’t been well enough to play this or any of the other games I’ve got that are featured on the poster, so there may not be any more first impressions until after Windows Mixed Reality’s launch and this will be just a regular news article. It should be noted however that this game only has one bad review on Steam and all the others are very positive.
Eternity Warriors VR isn’t an ARPG like the other games in the franchise but instead what I’d call a wave battler. I call it that rather than a wave shooter because although you can choose to be “The Gunner”, who as the name implies uses guns, or “The Hunter”, who uses a bow and arrows, you can also be “The Warrior” who uses a sword and shield. Although “The Warrior” does also have a (magic?) beam which shoots out of their palm a lot like Iron Man. Like your average wave shooter you are restricted to just one area at a time and can neither move freely around the level using the touchpad or thumbstick nor teleport. However, it’s 360 degree room-scale so not only can turn and look in any direction but you can physically move around your play-space to move around the area you’re in, you’re not rooted to the spot.
Here are more details from Eternity Warriors VR’s Steam page:
