The upcoming virtual reality game PlanTechtor has received a February release date. In the game players tackle waves of invading enemies by combining strategic planning with VR weapon combat.
Each level in the game starts with a pre-game phase where the player is given quests that provide some hints about the invading forces. It is in the player's hands to come up with a plan to prevent them from destroying the player's castle.
Weapon loadouts are said to be a big part of the initial planning phase as designing the perfect loadout is instrumental in securing victory. Players will be able to pick from a variety of weapons, some better suited against specific types of enemies.
The game is currently being developed by Lester Bloom and Isaiah Cartwright. Bloom recently left ArenaNet and founded indie development studio FunnerSoft. Cartwright is currently the design director for the popular MMORPG game Guild Wars 2.
PlanTechtor releases on February 27, 2019, and will support both the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift virtual reality headsets.
