Guardians Frontline Coming To Quest 2 & SteamVR In 2023, Published By Fast Travel Games

VR strategy shooter Guardians Frontline is coming to Quest 2 and PC VR in 2023, developed by VirtualAge Games and published by Fast Travel Games.

The title was originally released as Guardians VR on App Lab (and before that, SideQuest) for Quest and in Early Access on Steam for PC VR. Picked up by Fast Travel Games under the company’s new publishing wing, the game will be officially released for Quest 2 and PC VR in 2023 with the new title Guardians Frontline.

We wrote about the original Guardians release early last year, saying it had appeal and promise as a hybrid VR game with RTS and shooter mechanics. Fast Travel describes the upcoming Frontline release as a “strategic VR shooter” in a sci-fi setting:

In Guardians Frontline, players must defend the Federation against an enemy attack while trying to mine a mysterious energy source. Battlefields can be strategically secured with a mix of brains and brawn, including tactfully crafted buildings, mechs, starships, heavy weapons and more.

Frontline will include a single-player mode, four player co-op and support for up to eight players in PvP mode. The game will launch with a series of maps, but will also include an in-game level editor. Players will be able to create their own maps to play on, which they can then share with the community to be downloaded and played by others.

In a prepared statement, Carles Ballabriga of VirtualAge Games said the team drew influence from games like Halo and Starcraft when developing Frontline. Fast Travel Games’ head of publishing Patrick Liu called the game a “fresh take on the action/shooter VR genre” that features “a rare mix of shooters and tactics that work very well.”

Guardians Frontline will be available for Quest 2 and PC VR via Steam in early 2023.
