In Guardians Frontline, players must defend the federation from an enemy onslaught as they attempt to extract a mysterious energy source. Battlefields can be strategically secured with a blend of brain and brawn, including tactfully spawned buildings, mechs, spaceships, heavy weapons, and more. The game can be enjoyed solo in single-player mode, four-player co-op, or with up to eight friends in PvP.
“We’ve long enjoyed famed games like Halo and Starcraft, which have undeniably influenced us as we develop Guardians Frontline,” said Carles Ballabriga at VirtualAge Games. “Our talented friends at Fast Travel Games are known in the VR space for their engaging lineup of titles and are the perfect publishing partner to ensure our game reaches the right audiences.”
“Guardians Frontline caught our attention immediately. It’s a fresh take on the action/shooter VR genre with a great mix of beloved mechanics and impressively big scope,” said Patrick Liu, Head of Publishing at Fast Travel Games. “VirtualAge has made a rare blend of shooter and tactics that works very well, making it a game worth replaying time and again for the varying end results.”
While Guardians Frontline will launch with a set of battle-ready maps, players can utilize the comprehensive in-game level editor tool to craft unique maps that the whole community can enjoy. Community maps are free to download, encouraging players to test their skills and strategies across nearly infinite landscapes.
