Set for Second Alpha Release This Summer
For those that have championed VR setups right from the get-go, you’ll know that it hasn’t always been a smooth ride. After all, the VR genre although coming on leaps and bounds in recent years, is still in its infancy. However, this area of gaming continues to make huge strides forward and Zenith VR is a prime example of this.
This title aims to offer an immersive MMORPG like no other and despite the rather sporadic updates from the developers, we finally have a time period when the second alpha will drop.
According to a tweet from the Zenith MMO official Twitter account, this game will be going into alpha 2 between 31/5/2021 and 6/6/2021, meaning that this exciting project will be available for more players by the beginning of summer.
An Ambitious Project
To create an online MMO is a monumental task at the best of times. Only a select few ever live long enough to gather a crowd. With World of Warcraft, Final Fantasy, GTA Online and The Elder Scrolls: Online are the first games that spring to mind. However, the developers here have managed to create an MMO that not only functions as a vast multiplayer world to explore but also as a VR experience.
Just recently, we were treated to thirty minutes of uninterrupted gameplay courtesy of the official Twitter page once again. Within this video, we got to see more of the lush open environments, see more of the co-op functionality and also got to see more combat features. While it is still clearly a work in progress, we have to say, it looks very promising indeed and anyone that likes MMO titles, this will be an experience you won’t want to miss.
The developers also showcased a video soon after the first alpha announcement which focused more on showing of the different environments and biomes. This video was like a drone tour taking the player around the various areas, cities and other points of interest. If you haven’t seen that yet, then we would urge you to take a look.
Pre-orders for the second alpha went live just a few days ago. However, if you act fast, you may still be able to book your place and get a hands-on experience with Zenith VR. This game will be available on Oculus Rift, PSVR, Oculus Quest and HTC Vive so be sure to get in early to avoid disappointment.
So that’s our news regarding the upcoming VR MMORPG Zenith VR. What do you make of the game so far? Do you think this game has the potential to be one of the biggest VR games to date? Or do you think that this one is too ambitious for the format? Let us know in the comments section below!
