Dragon Front Is The First CCG Coming To The Oculus Rift
The Oculus Rift is off to a great 2016 with a wave of exclusive games available for the VR headset. High Voltage Software, in collaboration with Oculus Studios has announced Friday that it will be releasing a new game called “Dragon Front” for the Oculus Rift VR headset.
Dragon Front is a turn-based collectible card game (CCG) made specifically for virtual reality gaming on the Rift. Dragon Front offers 280 characters, 80 different encampments, and more than 100 spells. It also leverages the inherent social strengths of VR, allowing live online multiplayer competition while your opponent sits across from you and trades commentary.
The game’s style is a blend of fantasy and dieselpunk aesthetic with a wide variety of looks and different skills and power combinations. Dragon Front could be one of the most popular games for the Rift in the early days. Card games are very popular and the social aspect could make the game viral.
While appealing to the established CCG and boardgame audiences, Dragon Front will also appeal to VR and gaming fans with its ease of entry and repeat play appeal. There are hundreds of variables to keep players engaged. In Dragon Front, war has destroyed the world of Terrene Gall. To prevent the world’s destruction and win the war for their faction, players must travel back in time and use all available resources to gather new soldiers, discover powerful spells, construct a mighty fortress, and call in legendary champions.
Dragon Front highlights its key features such as the ability to choose from a set of unique factions – with a wide array of thematically diverse armies with unique powers, traits and creative strategies. In addition, there is also a legendary champion which every deck holds, whose cost diminishes as his or her side nears defeat, ensuring an epic showdown in the last minutes of every game. The player has also the ability to collect cards, and construct a 30-card deck from over 260 battle-hardened soldiers, battlefield fortifications, and magic spells. Finally, additional downloadable content will be made available for Dragon Front, where the first three add-on packs are in development, each with new factions, champions, and fantastical landscapes. The game launches with two factions with more included in new updates.
Dragon Front will be out later this year exclusively on Oculus. Meanwhile, the Oculus Rift starts shipping on March 28 and new pre-orders are delayed until July.
