An action adventure game built exclusively for virtual reality, Apex Construct is set in a shattered future where merciless robots prowl the world as a result of mankind’s reckless experiments.

Equipped with an upgradable a bow and arrow, players will explore this world to uncover its secrets while defending themselves from the nightmare machines that dominate the world of tomorrow.

As the last human alive in this dystopian future, players will need to explore this world to uncover its secrets while defending themselves from the synthetic creatures, utilizing an upgradable bow, arrow & shield setup. Progressing through the adventure, players will gradually reveal what actually happened to the world they once knew - and what their role is in the drawn out conflict between two powerful AIs.

The puzzles that players encounter will reveal more of the story, told in a world where two powerful AIs are locked in a drawn out conflict. Using motion controllers, players will pick up a bow, firing arrows through a fluid, natural motion that simulates the mechanics of real world archery to destroy robots and overcome environmental challenges. Some arrows even offer quite the punch, dealing electrical or explosive damage when they pierce their target.

Fast Travel Games has today released a free digital demo of their acclaimed debut VR title Apex Construct on Steam, available for players with either HTC Vive, Oculus Rift or Windows Mixed Reality headsets.

The demo puts players in the very first level of Apex Construct and includes the many improvements the studio has made to the game since its launch in March, 2018. Following the experience in the demo, the main game allows players to enter a safe house where they can upgrade their equipment, store collectibles and learn more about what happened to the shattered world. From the mission selection screen, they can proceed through 12 missions with intense bow & shield combat against Mothr’s robots, as well as enjoy immersive exploration & puzzle solving made from the ground up for VR.

Competitive players can also enter the arena in added game mode Cygnia Cup Challenge to chase highscores and climb the global leaderboards.
