STOCKHOLM – February 23, 2023 – Fast Travel Games and developer VirtualAge Games today announced that strategic sci-fi VR shooter Guardians Frontline will launch on March 9 for Meta Quest 2 and SteamVR at $24.99. Originally released as Guardians on Oculus App Lab, Guardians Frontline expands upon the original with overhauled graphics, enhanced weapons, new lobbies, an extensive in-game map editor, hundreds of additional editor pieces, and multiplayer co-op modes. Aspiring commanders can wishlist the game now on the Meta Quest Store and Steam.
With a dangerous alien onslaught looming, players must take control of the battlefield to protect the federation as they work to extract a mysterious power source. Strategically place buildings for cover, call in space crafts for air support, or face the enemy head-on with powerful heavy weapons. Guardians Frontline can be enjoyed solo in single-player mode, four-player co-op, or with up to eight friends in PvP.
“Every encounter in Guardians Frontline is unpredictable. That’s a major part of what makes the game so enticing,” said Carles Ballabriga, CEO at VirtualAge. “The strategy that worked for your first game isn’t guaranteed to work on the second, third, or even fourth game. Think outside the box, be creative, and give all of its mechanics a try to find the best combination to succeed.”
- A UNIQUE SCI-FI SHOOTER: Guardians Frontline blends the action-packed gameplay of first-person shooters with elements from real-time strategy games.
- A RANGE OF WEAPONS & VEHICLES: Shoot the Gravity Gun to smash enemies against cliffs. Maneuver mechs and spaceships to wreak havoc from the ground and the sky.
- GUARDIAN FRIENDS… AND FOES: The Guardians Frontline campaign and its missions can be played with up to 4 players in cooperative mode. Up to 8 players can battle it out in tense and strategic PvP fights.
- A FLOOD OF USER-GENERATED CONTENT: Guardians Frontline offers a comprehensive but easy-to-use in-game level editor that allows anyone to build and share maps for community enjoyment, leading to infinite replay value.
