Vertigo Games Turns Skyworld Into Cross-Platform Multiplayer Card Game
Vertigo Games released its mix of real-time and turn-based strategy experience Skyworld back in 2017, offering a mashup of several genres. Today, the company in collaboration with Vive Studios have announced a new title in the franchise, a multiplayer card-battler called Skyworld: Kingdom Brawl.
Designed to be a highly competitive cross-platform experience, Skyworld: Kingdom Brawl will allow players to unlock, collect and upgrade dozens of cards to build powerful decks. This being virtual reality (VR) they’ll be able to see their cards come alive as they cast spells and summon forces to wipe their opponents off the map. As a multiplayer focused title, players can go it alone or join a clan, taking on opponents from around the globe in regular online tournaments to rank on the global leaderboards.
“We set out to deliver a consistent, uncompromising cross-platform experience across PC VR and standalone VR hardware with Skyworld: Kingdom Brawl and it’s exciting to see how far we’ve been able to push the devices; from drawing massive numbers of units on screen to delivering awesome combat effects,” said Trevor Blom, Lead Tech at Vertigo Studios in a statement.
Having partnered with Vive Studios, Vertigo Games will be debuting Skyworld: Kingdom Brawl at the Game Developers Conference (GDC) 2019, offering attendees a cross-platform multiplayer hands-on demo on HTC Vive Pro and the HTC Vive Focus in the VR Play Area.
“Vertigo Games and Vive Studios have delivered on the VR industry’s desire for a gripping multiplayer game where players can battle friends regardless of their different VR hardware,” said Joel Breton, Vice President, Vive Studios. “We are very excited to be partnering with Vertigo Games to bring Skyworld Kingdom Brawl to the entire VR community.”
The studios are celebrating today’s announcement by launching the original Skyworld on Viveport Subscription today. As for the official launch of Skyworld: Kingdom Brawl, that will take place on 2nd April 2019, supporting HTC Vive, HTC Vive Pro, HTC Vive Focus, Oculus Rift and Windows Mixed Reality headsets.
