Fast Travel Games and Trebuchet just announced the multiplayer VR sword fighting game Broken Edge during the Upload VR Showcase.
Watch the game’s first trailer below. In Broken Edge, two players compete against each other, selecting different characters and weapons and learning their unique fighting styles. As you duel, the blades will crumble and break, forcing you to rethink your approach until one player manages to hit the other.

“We’ve worked very hard to create a seamless and impactful experience as your knives collide and break thanks to our advanced fencing mechanisms,” said Creative Director Guillaume Perreault Roy in the video. The result is a game a bit like Ironlights, although with Broken Edge you can swing your blade freely and not slow down the action. Visually, the game also has a striking pastel color palette.
This will be Trebuchet’s fourth VR game, following the launch of Winds & Leaves and Prison Boss VR last year. It is also the second announced publishing project from Fast Travel Games, which released Cities: VR itself earlier this year and published VR music maker Virtuoso. The company will be making a few more reveals during the Showcase, so keep your eyes peeled.
Broken Edge is currently confirmed to be coming to Quest 2 and SteamVR later this year. No word yet on possible PSVR versions, but we’ll definitely keep you posted.
Stay tuned for the Upload VR Showcase; we have plenty more reveals and headlines for today.
