X8 Brings New Tactical Hero Shooter To Quest 2, PC VR This Winter

Next Altair Breakerhas unveiled Thirdverse X8, a tactical 5v5 VR shooter coming to Quest 2 and PC VR.

It’s been a busy week for VR shooters. First we had offenders from Triangle Factory, which seemingly offers a VR version of Rainbow Six Siege. Then we had Firewall UltraFirst Contact Entertainment’s PSVR 2 exclusive sequel to 2018 Firewall zero hour. Now we have X8, but unlike the other two, Thirdverse has instead taken the hero shooter approach, similar to Larcenauts.

X8 presents a fictional crossover, where a digital disaster forces countless contemporary shooters into a reboot, with each hero united by a common game engine. They compete on different maps and fight to restore their original worlds, splitting into 5v5 online teams with up to 16 rounds.

Each hero uses three abilities with customizable abilities and gear, in addition to original weapons and specific items. As attackers, you must place a blast device called ‘The Extrapolator’, while defenders must disrupt the bet. So far, Thirdverse has only confirmed the one game mode, but stated that “multiple game modes are planned for the future.”
