Indie developer NUX Studios released its first title Wands for Samsung Gear VR a year ago. Today, the developer alongside publisher Cortopia Studios have announced that the magic-based combat title will be coming to Oculus Rift in September.
Having won ‘Best VR Game of the Year’ during the 13th Global International Mobile Gaming Awards, the Oculus Rift version will expand on the original, utilising the headsets high-end capabilities to offer a greater level of immersion than before. Players will now be able to dodge spells, and with 3D audio hear where attacks are coming from.
Wands will also offer cross-platform character expansion and battles. Should you own both versions you’ll be able to play at home on Oculus Rift then continue on Gear VR wherever you are, ensuring your character can progress exactly from where you left it.
A purely player verses player (PvP) title, Wands takes place in an alternate 19th Century London, combining magic with a steampunk Victorian era design. Players take control of a sorcerer or ‘Wielder’ who must train and learn ancient spells to use against other players in combat.
The Oculus Rift version will launch at the end of September. If you’ve not bought the Gear VR version the studio’s offering a limited time discount.
VRFocus will continue its coverage of Wands, reporting back with the latest updates.
