Around this time last year Mythical City Games released its first full blown virtual reality (VR) title for Oculus Rift and HTC Vive, a family-friendly snowball throwing videogame called Snow Fortress. Today, the studio has announced the launch of Snow Fortress for PlayStation VR, widening the options for the online multiplayer.
Snow Fortress isn’t just a first-person shooter (FPS) where players throw snowballs at each other, it combines a base building aspect so that players have to create their fortifications which then need to be defended. Featuring a single-player mode with 20 levels to play through, each level requires a new fort to be built, out of either solid snow blocks or more icy translucent ones to keep an eye on the enemy base.
Once the fort is ready it’s time to begin the fight. Players can throw normal snowballs to whittle down an opponents fortifications or utilise a slingshot to do some real damage. As progression is made shields and other tools to protect themselves and the fort can be unlocked. There’s even the option to build a snowman army that can protect the snow fortress.
Aside from the single-player campaign, there’s an endless survival mode to really test your building and snowman killing skill. Or for the ultimate challenge head online and battle friends in multiplayer, which features cross-platform gameplay support between Oculus Rift, HTC Vive and PlayStation VR. Mythical City Games has additionally confirmed that Snow Fortress also support Windows Mixed Reality headsets.
