'Larcenauts' The Zarius Heist Update Will Add new Specialist, Map, Payload Objective Mode And More

by Rainier on Sept. 17, 2021 @ 8:59 a.m. PDT

Larcenauts is a Virtual Reality, team-based, 6v6 multiplayer, first-person hero shooter that offers full cross-play support across major VR devices.

Players choose from a diverse cast of 8 playable Specialists with larger-than-life personalities such as the Grenadier, the Infiltrator, and even a sentient Mushroom. They are led by their fearless leader, Captain Kas, who doubles as the in-game announcer and is voiced by the inimitable Jane Lynch (Glee, Wreck-It Ralph, American Dad!). Each Specialist features fully customizable weapon loadouts and unique skills that can be grown over time via the deep progression system along with earning stylish new cosmetic upgrades to add personal swagger.

Players assemble their crew and battle online through the Tern System with full cross-play support across major VR devices.

Thrilling 6v6 multiplayer matches will take Specialists through game modes including territories-style Refuel, capture-the-flag-style Uplink and classic team Deathmatch spanning 4 otherworldly maps including Relay, Excavation, Blight and Hazard Pay, all to compete for riches in the lawless fringes of the Ludus galaxy.

To the victor go the spoils...

Coming on on September 30 as a free content update, The Zarius Heist will bring an all-new Specialist into the fray, a brand-new map, a new payload objective mode and more.

Additional details about the new character, map, private lobbies, and new game mode will be made available soon.

To prepare for the release of The Zarius Heist, Impulse Gear is holding a Daily Deal promotion on the Oculus store for one day only on Saturday, Sept. 18, where future misfits can join the Larcenauts action at a 10 percent discount.
