World of Mechs offers both single and multiplayer modes, where players jump into one of 32 different mech types and take to the battlefield. Matches consist of eight players, with two teams of four. Online, you take on arena-style maps, with five levels available at launch in four different modes (Team Deathmatch, Domination, Assault and VIP). Each mecha has unique abilities, including cloaking devices and powerful melee attacks.
The single-player mode, meanwhile, features 20 missions and you take on bosses and then claim their mechs for yourself. The game is now available for wishlist on the Quest Store.
The game joins a growing list of mech titles for VR. Recently we saw the full release of Vox Machinae and earlier today Resolution Games unveiled a first look at its Rocket League-esque esport, Ultimechs. Even the most recent addition to the MechWarrior franchise, MechWarrior 5, has unofficial support through a mod. We’ll find out exactly where the game fits into the scene when it hits Quest 2 in the near future. No other platforms have been confirmed at this time.
