PS VR Hero Shooter Megalith Starts Free Beta Tomorrow

First official gameplay footage and details of the five starting Titans.

Hey everyone! We couldn’t be more excited to be launching the Megalith beta tomorrow for PlayStation VR. Creating this game has been a real adventure for us, and we can’t wait to share that adventure with you.

We started Disruptive Games with one simple overriding goal: make great online games. Our first step was to assemble an amazing team. That done, we have spent the last two years working extremely hard on our first game, Megalith. The good thing is that a big part of our “work” has been playing Megalith almost every day! We have spent countless hours discussing, debating, and even arguing over the details to ensure Megalith is fun, beautiful, and highly competitive. But something has been missing…you! So, for the next couple of months all of you will be able to play with us for free in our open beta. Also, to thank early adopters we are offering a ton of rewards for pre-ordering the game.

Now to the details…

During the open beta you will have access to two of the five Titans at any time. The ones you get change every week, and not every player will have the same rotation of Titans; so there will be plenty of variety when you play. But if you pre-order the game, you’ll immediately be able to choose from any of the five titans anytime you want during the beta. And you get all the bonuses listed below, too!

Pre-order Megalith to receive the following:

  • Immediately: Unlock all Titans available during the Beta.
  • Bonus: Avatar pack including the starting five Titans.
  • Bonus: One DLC Titan granted when the game releases.
  • Exclusive: Epic skins for each of the starting five Titans when the game releases.

How to play

In Megalith, choose from one of five starting Titans and work in teams of two to take on other Titans in battle. The Titans each wield unique powers and abilities derived from their origin. These abilities can be used alone, but become even more effective when coordinated with an ally.

Each team must protect their side while attempting to lead their minions into enemy territory and breach their defenses. Titans will need to destroy enemy walls and towers in order to make their bases vulnerable to attack. Powerful siege minions can be summoned to aid in the path to
Victory.

The Titan Roster

Here are the five starting Titans and their abilities:

  1. Tundra: Frost Blast (Primary), Ice Shield, Ice Shackles, Permafrost, Ice Age (Ultimate)
  2. Cipher: Bounce Launcher (Primary), Boomerang, Tether Pull, Rupture, Tracker Orbs (Ultimate)
  3. Taur: Swipe (Primary), Charge, Acid Spit, Rage Mode, Stoneblock (Ultimate)
  4. Aurora: Ethereal Burst (Primary),Chain Lightning, Ion Shell, Tempest, Wrath Of Heaven (Ultimate)
  5. Hunter: Crossbow (Primary), Arrow Volley, Explosive Arrow, Talisman, Solar Beam (Ultimate)

  • I hope every step in the world has been taken to reduce motion-sickness. That’s one reason I rarely use my PSVR

    • It has click-turn and a field of view blinder option for motion sickness. That said, your best bet is to get some ginger gum, start slow and build your VR legs.

      I’m in the same boat. Irony is, if we used it we’d get over it, but it’s just so hard to power through it. I did get a good tolerance after Skyrim VR launch, but then other non-VR games came out and I lost it. For Skyrim I took anti nausea 30 min before playing, and that made it very enjoyable. Then my brain just got used to it and on the third or fourth session I forgot to take antii nausea and realized later that I was fine even without it. I would play for hours too. Skyrim has good options though. Snap turning and limiting FOV are the best settings for me.

  • How long is the beta period? Because, there will be an influx of new PSVR owners after Black Friday sales. Why not run the beta during that timeframe?

    • “So, for the next couple of months all of you will be able to play with us for free in our open beta.”

  • Will skins or any exclusive items be purchasable during the open beta?
    I would love to have some exclusive swag to show I joined from the beginning since the first beta..

  • Constantly hitting refresh waiting for store to update. It usually updates 12pm EST or 11am EST?

    • Wait it’s showing in the store now but no “Download” button? This is free entry right? No code required?

  • ITS LIVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Just played the network test beta, loved the game, and pre-ordered immediately. Good game.

    This looks like an awesome addition to the PSVR library. I will check it out, and I think my brother (also has PSVR) will really like this game so will push him to try it too. He was big on Smite, Orc Unchained and Overwatch and this seems similar to those.
