'Orion13' Release Date Set For Next Month - Screens & Trailer

by Rainier on Jan. 6, 2020 @ 5:17 p.m. PST

In Orion13 VR gamers will experience open-world locomotion and realistically-articulated virtual body features that give the player a fluid, fast-paced, first-person, hack-and-slash VR adventure, all set to an original sound track.

You are Orion13, a newly self-aware combat robot who believes her memory implants are her own... and you just want to go home. Fight your way through a futuristic robot society using swords, stuns, and shields with a host of colorful friends and foes.

Not for the faint of heart.

Using advanced open locomotion with Inverse Kinematics, players battle their way through enemy robots in a truly immersive VR experience. The title features multiple levels of gameplay, interactive puzzles, and an original electronic soundtrack interwoven with a cinematic story arc.

The new trailer offers a sneak peek at the fast-paced, futuristic, neon-soaked world where robots rule a dystopian society. Players wield a sword as the newly sentient combat robot, Orion13, who believes her memory implants are her own. She has just one mission: find her way home.

Scott Matalon, founder and president, MVRS, said, “We set out to create a compelling action-adventure VR game aimed at hardcore gamers like ourselves. We designed it as a game we wanted to play and focused on key elements we felt were missing from the VR marketplace: open-world locomotion and fast-paced action. That’s what will set Orion13 apart from other titles available today. Now that it’s done, I’m excited to finally give fellow gamers their first glimpse of what they can expect come February 13th.”

Key Features:

  • A compelling story that elevates the overall VR experience
  • Open locomotion and free-turn movement, for total freedom of maneuverability
  • First-person Inverse Kinematics
