‘Echo Combat’ Free Open Beta to Launch This Month, Full Release to Cost $10

Latest news

    Echo Combat, the VR shooter expansion to Ready at Dawn’s successful VR sports game Echo Arena, is heading into open beta this month. And unlike its sporty counterpartwhich was released for free to all Oculus Rift users, the shooter is going to be priced at $10 when it releases.

    There’s no official launch date for Echo Combat yet, but the open beta is set to kick off June 21st for free. You can sign up here for more information.

    For VR fans going to E3 this year, which takes place June 12-14 in Los Angeles, Oculus will be hosting public demos of Echo Combat at the Alienware booth (South Hall #647).

    We recently went hands-on with Echo Combat in a closed beta session, and it proved to be just as engaging, highly-polished, and comfortable as Echo Arena, albeit with a new objective-based payload gametype that pits you in a three vs. three shooting match to either attack – pushing a giant pink flamingo payload to its goal on the other side of the map, or defend – make sure that doesn’t happen.
