Developer/publisher Survios released the final Early Access update for VR title Raw Data, and it’s massive. The Rogue update features a new campaign level with a surprising twist, a new playable character, and an all-new competitive team-based PvP mode. This new update, like previous updates, is entirely free for all owners of the game.
The new PvP game mode included with the Rogue update is a version of the classic “King of the Hill” mode you might recognize from other non-VR first-person shooter games. Two competing teams of up to five players vie for control of a central point. Whichever team reaches the 100% point threshold first is the winner. There are many interesting dynamics at play as you must fight for control of the point, while also keeping an eye out for power-ups around the map and battling each other.
James Iliff, Survios Chief Creative Officer and Co-founder, had this to say about the Rogue update,
“Going to battle against other human players in VR is insanely exciting, and now you can fight online as your favorite Raw Data heroes, putting your skills and style to the ultimate test. Our community has been asking for player vs player combat and we are thrilled to be delivering this PvP expansion. Now you can be an awesome badass and hone your technique in the most fast-paced and visceral combat experience yet.”
Also, there is a brand new class now that is focused on using a bow and arrow as a weapon, which adds more variety on top of the existing sword, gun, and fist-wielding characters already in the game. There will also be a second PvP game mode when the game eventually exits Early Access later this year, but Survios has nothing to say on this yet.
Raw Data is slated to release out of Early Access in September, although a specific date has not been set. Currently the game is available for HTC Vive and Oculus Rift with a PSVR version coming later this year as well.
