Independent VR developer Muddy Pixel has launched its vehicle-based sci-fi shooter WORLDS AT WAR into Early Access with official Windows Mixed Reality support. It’s available to download from Steam and normally costs £13.49 (UK) / €16.99 (EU) / $16.99 (US) but has a 26% launch discount until March 16th, so is currently priced at £9.98 (UK) / €12.57 (EU) / $12.57 (US). Please note that this game requires either a joypad or keyboard & mouse, it doesn’t currently support motion controllers. (And joystick support is also currently disabled while they fix some issues.)

Although Muddy Pixel is a new independent developer it’s comprised of industry veterans who have worked on franchises such as Battlefield, Resistance and TitanFall. So expectations may be a little higher and I think it’s a game worth keeping an eye on even if you don’t buy it during Early Access.

You can watch a trailer for WORLDS AT WAR above and read more info about the game in the following description from its Steam page:

 

WORLDS AT WAR

ABOUT THIS GAME

Worlds At War thrusts the player into the aftermath of an alien invasion. A small multi-national ragtag group of surviving fighter pilots and crew man a small carrier-group, roaming the oceans and trying to survive against all odds.

The game features diverse fully pilotable aircraft, helicopters and boats, and players must learn to master them in order to defend the carrier-group from a relentless onslaught of alien attack-waves in a unique combination of some of mankinds best military equipment facing off with alien space-ships.

-3 Settings
-3 Pilotable vehicle-types
-Horde-mode and Free Flight
-Through the Early Access process, more scenarios and vehicle-types will be added with the help of feedback from the community!

Caution: This is an intense experience, with smooth movement and rotation of player-camera. Stay in external views if you are sensitive to VR-nausea. If you are Very sensitive, this may not the game for you in VR. It is also in Early Access, and as such is it not a fully finished product. Your support will help shape it. Enjoy!
