Frostpoint VR: Proving Grounds is a new PvP Shooter from Xbox Game Studio inXile Entertainment


There are some exciting multiplayer virtual reality (VR) shooters on the way this year, with Onward arriving tomorrow for Oculus Quest and Solaris Offworld Combat launching in August. Today, there’s another to add to this growing genre, with inXile Entertainment revealing Frostpoint VR: Proving Grounds will be released in 2020.

Frostpoint VR: Proving Grounds

inXile Entertainment’s last VR title was The Mage’s Tale before it was subsequently brought by Microsoft in 2018 and became an Xbox Game Studio. A hint at the studio’s plan was revealed last year when it was looking for a ‘Senior UE4 Multiplayer Engineer’.

Frostpoint VR: Proving Grounds is going to be a team-based first-person shooter (FPS), where up to 20 players in teams of 10 fight it out across an abandoned military base in Antarctica. Players will be able to gear up using a variety of realistic and some sci-fi weaponry as well as using grenades, health kits, armour upgrades, turrets, and tracking upgrades to aid combat.

Gameplay modes will mix encounters up across four maps, so players will have to capture or control specific locations. To make things a little more interesting it won’t just be human players wandering the frozen levels, both teams will also encounter hostile biomechanical creatures.

“I’ve been enamoured with VR since the early days, and have had some of my finest gaming memories with a VR headset on,” said Brian Fargo, founder and Studio Head of inXile entertainment, in a statement. “We’ve created an immersive new world with Frostpoint VR, and dialled up the intensity with 20+ player matches. It will be a thrill for us to watch people step into the world and battle it out.”

“The world in Frostpoint VR: ProvingGrounds is vast, while the action is dense. We want players to be challenged to experiment and find the right combinations of gear and weapons to survive and level up their skills to be effective in this punishing yet highly enjoyable game,” said Kiyoshi Shin, Co-Founder of Thirdverse Inc. “We’re looking forward to seeing how audiences respond to Frostpoint VR: Proving Grounds’ gameplay in the next several months.”

Frostpoint VR: Proving Grounds is slated to launch later this year for Oculus Rift, HTC Vive and Valve Index headsets. inXile Entertainment will be launching an open beta soon, when those details are available VRFocus will let you know.
