Whichever virtual reality (VR) platform a developer chooses to support first, if they have not already chosen Meta Quest 2, then it is highly likely that a gateway will come at some point. Carbon Studio has proven it this week by announcing the PC VR title Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Tempestfall will take the leap to the standalone headset next week.
Carbon Studio has worked hard to fit a great action-adventure video game like Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Tempestfall on Meta Quest 2. As the PC VR version has been “further refined and improved”, the Quest 2 version has been “enriched with an improved combat system and several changes to the quality of life.”
These range from easier magic spells and “clearer signaling of the direction of attack from opponents” to additional upgrade stations to improve weapons and an improved hit recognition system.
The team has not only improved the gaming experience. The Quest 2 edition comes with all the PC VR versions extras like the new Hardcore Mode plus an added bonus – The Storm Trials Mode. Like a horde mode at the sound of it, you will have to fight your way through increasingly challenging arena levels and upgrade your character and weapons along the way.
Hopefully these improvements hold up to a more rounded experience, like gmw3 said in his review: “Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Tempestfall offered the prospect of the kind of adventure that Games Workshop’s brutal universe is known for, and the story and narrative are there for sure. Still, there is no connection or development of the protagonist, the plot is mostly forgettable, and there are just too many small flaws and inconsistencies to create a world that Warhammer fans can really immerse themselves in. “
Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Tempestfall arrives at Meta Quest 2 on May 19, 2022 at a price of $ 24.99. For more updates on the latest Carbon Studio titles, keep reading gmw3.
