Update: Acron is set to launch on August 29, 2019.
Resolution Games, creators of Angry Birds VR: Isle of Pigs, announced that they’ll be launching a brand new VR title called Acron.
This will be a multiplayer party game that will be both competitive and cooperative in nature for players across VR and mobile devices. The company has stated that there will be severl “firsts” and will be a hilariously fun experience vr VR enthusiasts.
“We’ve always believed that VR is more enjoyable when you can play with your friends and family,” said Tommy Palm, co-founder and CEO of Resolution Games. “ACRON takes that idea even further by allowing players in VR to play with and against opponents on mobile in a social setting. And not only is this game a prime way to introduce people to VR, but I can honestly say this game is the most fun I’ve ever had in VR… and I’ve played a lot of VR games!”
In Acron, one player becomes a large, ancient tree that is the sole protector of the ‘seeds of life’ (the Golden Acrons), while the players on mobile take on identities of a gang of rebellious squirrels that band together to strategize on how to best scurry around to get as many nuts as they can.
The game will come with multiple levels depicting different nature environments and several characters with various roles for players to become. Acron is expected to launch across several major VR platforms and both iOS and Android devices. The game is set to launch on August 29 where you can grab it on Steam.
