War Robots VR: The Skirmish is the mech game you’ve always wanted

By , on August 10, 2017

War Robots is making the jump from third to first-person in an all new single-player adventure for VR headsets. War Robots VR: The Skirmish, which has just been released today, lets you take control of your very own mech robot. Set in a beautifully imagined post-apocalyptic world, it’s your job to seek out your purpose.

Where War Robots specialized in multiplayer team battles, you’re going it alone in War Robots VR: The Skirmish. You’ll face off against enemy mechs in exciting gun battles that take full advantage of VR technology as you explore The Skirmish’s stunning cyberpunk setting.

Gameplay has been designed with mechs in mind, and combat looks to be urgent and exciting. It’s not easy to make lumbering robots look like graceful fighting machines, but The Skirmish has achieved this difficult feat. The controls look to be fluid and responsive, fully immersing you in the role of mech pilot.

It’s rare that we get the chance to sit in the cockpit of our very own mech, let alone in virtual reality. It will certainly be exciting to see where Pixonic takes the War Robots series as they continue their forays into VR.

War Robots VR: The Skirmish is free on Steam and Oculus Store, and you can play it with an HTC Vive or Oculus Rift headset.
