“Become the liberator and beacon of hope the people need!” No pressure, right?
Our team at Skydance Interactive is thrilled to share the news with you that our very first VR game Archangel will officially launch in July for an exclusive two-week window on PlayStation VR before releasing on additional platforms.
Let us set the stage: a world ravaged by natural disasters. A corporatized, tyrannical United States where the government and freedom of the people no longer exist. With this in mind, strap on your PlayStation VR headset and prepare for battle.
In Archangel, you’ll discover that you’ve been selected by the United States Free Forces, the resistance, to pilot a one-of-a-kind weapon: a six-story high war machine built to destroy. You’re dropped into the cockpit of a giant mech to lead your squadron into battle against HUMNX, a private conglomerate that governs what little is left of a ravaged America.
Grab the controls and watch as your own two massive mech hands surge to life! Fire at will on your enemies with an incredible array of high-powered weapons, or punch a plane from the sky with one hand while machine-gunning a hovercopter with the other — all without breaking a sweat.
Throughout the game you’ll protect — and be protected by — AI-controlled teammates who pilot a number of different vehicles, each with their own capabilities. When the odds turn against you, use your shield generators to block incoming attacks and protect your teammates. If your shields have failed, your teammates carry nano-bot units that can repair damage to your hull. When weapons and shields won’t do the trick, you can get personal and use your hands to crush your foes. Being a massive mechanized engine of destruction has some pretty noticeable advantages in combat!
Utilize all this firepower and support to battle your way through progressively difficult waves of enemies across many different environments, and earn XP to level up your mech along the way. Play the lead role in the next chapter of the great story of the resistance, with storylines both epic and personal woven throughout.
Our goal with Archangel was to create an action-packed shooter with explosive gameplay, high-quality graphics, engaging storytelling and dynamic characters, delivering a complete package for VR gamers. We’re so excited to bring Archangel to you and hope you enjoy the game, but do not take this mission lightly — you are the best and final hope for the United States Free Forces, the tip of the spear in the fight against the tyrannical HUMNX. You are more than a warrior and more than a protector. You are the people’s deliverance. You are the Archangel!
