Initial Early Access Launch Features:
- Throw Up Some Shapes: Instead of choosing spells from a cumbersome menu, become a virtual sorcerer and use your own finger-wands to draw magic symbols in the air for a fully “hands-on” spell slingin’ experience. Cast one-handed or conjure more powerful incantations by combining spells with both hands. String combinations of spells together for the ultimate show of wizardry. With offensive, defensive, and healing spells part of your arsenal, no matter what your playstyle is, you’re fully loaded with everything you need to achieve victory.
- More Than Just Floating Hands: Gear up as a full-bodied virtual duelist for a truly immersive combat simulation. Each avatar comes equipped with enchanted masks that feature holographic emoji expressions that change based on how you’re faring in battle, bringing a whole new meaning to “bringing your game face.”
- No Flutes, Lutes, or Lyres: This ain’t your granddaddy’s magical dogfight; SpellPunk VR features a slappin’ Hip-Hop and EDM soundtrack composed by one of the top musicians in film and gaming to keep energy levels high as combatants blow each other to bits with fireballs and curses.
- Three Tiers of Matchmaking: Whether a lowly apprentice or a Master Mage, Casual, Normal, and Ranked region-specific matchmaking allows you to climb the ranks — or not — at your own speed. As a trainee thaumaturge, you can even develop your skills offline against a cunning AI opponent in Training Mode, giving you the experience needed to lay a smackdown on the online battlefield.
