It’s a Multiplayer Survival Sim! In VR!
We’ve been getting a glut of survival sim games over the last few years. Which honestly rules. Bring on the glut! Creating an island of safety in the middle of a hellish world is a sensation I recommend to more or less everyone on earth. A Township Tale is bringing that experience to the Oculus, complete with the essential multiplayer element. In fact, pre-orders are open right now! Curious players won’t have to wait long before the game is properly released. For more details, you can check out the press release just below.
A Township Tale, the fantasy online multiplayer VR RPG coming to Oculus Quest on Thursday, July 15, is now available for pre-order for $9.99 USD. Pre-order benefits include access to the game before the launch date, as well as in-game items that can be used across various VR platforms.
“Launching on Quest gives a new way for fans around the world to band together and face the challenges of the magical, medieval VR world of A Township Tale,” said Boramy Unn, game director, Alta. “Since revealing A Township Tale for Quest and Quest 2 earlier this month, the response has been overwhelmingly positive. We created this pre-order program to provide even more reason for new and current players to jump right in and connect with friends in the immersive way that is only possible on VR.”
Fans who pre-order A Township Tale for Quest and Quest 2 beginning today will receive pre-order bonuses that include:
- Base game which includes a personal server and 1,000 Talems (in-game currency)
- Early access to the game starting Tuesday, July 13
- An exclusive outfit, toolbelt and an additional 1,000 Talems (for a total of 2,000 Talems)
- The in-game items are cross-platform meaning they can be shared between Oculus and PC VR platforms
- Players can receive these cosmetic items immediately by logging into their Alta account on Quest platforms
The Quest and Quest 2 versions of A Township Tale were revealed earlier this month in the coveted final slot of the UploadVR E3 showcase.
At launch, Oculus Quest and Quest 2 players will be able to buy the game and receive their own server with 1,000 Talems to purchase additional cosmetic items for their characters.
From Australian indie developer Alta VR, A Township Tale is a dream-come-true for fans of RPGs and survival games, set in a medieval fantasy world where players band together with up to eight friends on a virtual server to take on professions and craft equipment while they explore the dangerous world before them.
A Township Tale allows players to become master professionals in their new town by taking up the mantle of blacksmiths, woodcutters, miners, archers and warriors. Players can explore dangerous areas and recover crafting materials to improve their gear. With specialized weapons, levelling abilities and playstyles, unique parties are formed to delve into the deepest reaches of dark caverns.
Key A Township Tale Features
- Physical Crafting Professions – Operate physical tools and stations, maximizing the spatial range of VR controls.
- Levelling – Level up in specialized professions to unlock abilities in crafting and combat.
- Online Multiplayer – Join with others on the adventure and level up different skills to form a unique party.
- Personal Server – Oculus Quest players can start their own cloud-hosted server with an eight concurrent player limit. (NOTE: PC and Quest will not yet feature cross-play at launch.)
