Strap On Your Jetpack – Space Junkies Is Accepting Beta Registrations

It has been a busy day for announcements, and the day is still not over. Low-gravity sci-fi arena shooter Space Junkies is looking for intrepid players to don a jetpack and sign up for its Beta test.

First announced by Ubisoft at E3, Space Junkies has been described as a fast-paced arena shooter that lets players put on that elusive and desirable token of futuristic technology, the jetpack, and zoom around a low-gravity orbital arena, known in-universe as ‘Orenas’, to shoot enemies.
Since the arenas are in orbit, players will be dealing with microgravity, able to use this to their advantage to fly around in 3D space using their trusty jetpack, or moon-jump out of harm’s way, with the added complication and disadvantage of knowing that foes can approach you from any direction, so hiding behind cover is no longer as simple as it once was.

Ubisoft have said that the physics and microgravity can mean a split-second decision can cause a complex chain reaction that can lead to disaster or victory, and that destructible environments and dynamic lighting are being included so the arena can change and react to player actions, something which could change the dynamics of a match.
Attendees at Oculus Connect 4 in San Jose are being given to try out the title in hands-on demonstrations, and interested HTC Vive and Oculus Rift users can sign up for the Beta by visiting the official Space Junkies website.
The official Space Junkies trailer is available to view below.
