Moss developer Polyarc launches signups for new multiplayer VR game


Moss series developer Polyarc launched signups to play a mysterious new multiplayer game they’re making, for virtual reality.

Just like their predecessor games, their new game is for VR and will focus on competitive multiplayer gameplay. Signups are now live for a playtest, which runs from April 14th to the 16th.

“We are happy to see that the audience for VR continues to grow, now counting in the tens of millions of players, with more user-friendly and accessible headsets being released every year,” said Tam Armstrong, co-founder and CEO, Polyarc. “As a game development studio that aspires to create games for everyone, we want to find ways to reach more of the audience within VR and even create space for new folks to join us there. With that in mind, the greater number of players gives us the opportunity to try ideas we have for multiplayer gameplay that can offer more to competitive players.”

This new and unannounced project is something their team has been wanting to do since they launched in 2015, but they wanted a large enough playerbase to  support VR games of this scale.

“It’s apparent observing the community of players out there and receiving some of our own feedback that there are a lot of gamers in VR who are looking for and want to play more competitive multiplayer games,” said Armstrong. “We are excited about this opportunity, as VR offers interesting considerations for multiplayer games. The ability to read the other player’s focus and intention as they move their head and hands are some of the elements that make playing games in person so compelling. We are looking forward to sharing what we’ve been working on and the fun we’ve been having playing it.”
