Guardians Frontline is a VR shooter with strategy elements in a sci-fi setting where you wield powerful weapons and set up both defensive & offensive structures as you fight off enemies in single-player, co-op, and PVP game modes.

Featuring powerful weapons, structural crafting, and an in-game map editor, Guardians Frontline allows players to take on the role of both soldier and commander.

In Guardians Frontline, players must defend the federation from an enemy onslaught as they attempt to extract a mysterious energy source. Battlefields can be strategically secured with a blend of brain and brawn, including tactfully spawned buildings, mechs, spaceships, heavy weapons, and more. The game can be enjoyed solo in single-player mode, four-player co-op, or with up to eight friends in PvP.

While Guardians Frontline will launch with a set of battle-ready maps, players can utilize the comprehensive in-game level editor tool to craft unique maps that the whole community can enjoy. Community maps are free to download, encouraging players to test their skills and strategies across nearly infinite landscapes.

“We’ve long enjoyed famed games like Halo and Starcraft, which have undeniably influenced us as we develop Guardians Frontline,” said Carles Ballabriga at VirtualAge Games. “Our talented friends at Fast Travel Games are known in the VR space for their engaging lineup of titles and are the perfect publishing partner to ensure our game reaches the right audiences.”

Guardians Frontline caught our attention immediately. It’s a fresh take on the action/shooter VR genre with a great mix of beloved mechanics and impressively big scope.,” said Patrick Liu, Head of Publishing at Fast Travel Games. “VirtualAge has made a rare blend of shooter and tactics that works very well, making it a game worth replaying time and again for the varying end results.”

Key Features:

  • STRATEGIC SCI-FI SHOOTER: Guardians Frontline blends the action-packed gameplay of FPS shooters with real-time strategy and tactics, allowing players to take on the roles as both soldier and general. Let your bullets do the work while you simultaneously spawn structures & units straight to the battlefield!
  • A RANGE OF WEAPONS & VEHICLES: Brought in to protect the federation, as a Guardian you have access to a huge range of weaponry and tools. Shoot the Gravity Gun to smash your enemies against the cliffs, and maneuver both mechs and spaceships to wreak havoc from the ground as well as the sky!
  • GUARDIAN FRIENDS… AND FOES: The single player experience lets you protect the federation while they extract a new and mysterious energy source. In addition, the Guardians campaign and its missions can be played with up to 4 players in co-operative mode while up to 8 players can battle it out in tense and strategic PvP fights.
  • A FLOOD OF USER GENERATED CONTENT: Guardians Frontline has a comprehensive but easy-to-use in-game level editor that allows anyone to build their own maps and make them public for the community to enjoy, leading to almost infinite replay value.

Originally released as Guardians on Oculus App Lab, Guardians Frontline will launch for Meta Quest 2 and SteamVR in early 2023.
