Today during the Upload VR Showcase a brand new VR IP was announced called Solaris Offworld Combat. FPS games have always been a staple of consoles and PC, so it is no wonder that an arena shooter would come to VR. Check out the trailer below.

In Solaris, players will “engage in tense multiplayer PvP combat in virtual environments that look and feel like they’ve been ripped out of an esport from the future.” That is actually pretty much the whole premise of the game.

You take on the role of a futuristic cyber athlete that uses VR to compete in first-person shooter competitions.

Solaris Offworld Combat has a very fast-paced experience that has quick respawns, guns laying around arenas for quick picking up similar to old-school shooters like Halo and Quake, and should be easy enough to pick-up and play.

Solaris: Offworld Combat is releasing this August 2020 for Oculus Rift, with crossplay and dedicated servers. First Contact Entertainment is also planning to release Solaris later this year for PSVR, however, there is no date announced yet.
