Story-Driven VR Shooter Set to Launch in New International Territories on PlayStation®VR
SANTA MONICA, Calif – Aug. 2, 2017 – Following a two-week exclusive debut on PlayStation®VR, Skydance Interactive has now made its award-winning first person shooter Archangel available for purchase across all premium VR platforms, including HTC Vive and Oculus Rift. Starting today Archangel is available for the new price of $29.99, including on PlayStation®VR.
Within the week Archangel will also debut in new international territories on PlayStation®VR, including Belgium, Denmark, Finland, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Russia, Sweden, and Turkey.
Set in a post-apocalyptic America during the year 2089, players will assume the role of Gabby or Gabriel Walker, codename “Guardian,” who is selected by the United States Free Forces to lead the resistance against the tyrannical corporation HUMNX, a private conglomerate that governs what is left of our ravaged nation. Using the Oculus Touch or HTC Vive controllers, players enter the cockpit of a six-story high war machine and use strategy and skill to fire upon enemies with a wide array of high-powered weapons, protect allies from onslaught, and lead their squadmates into a high-stakes VR battle.
“Now that Archangel is available on all major VR platforms, we invite gamers everywhere to fulfill their fantasies of piloting a giant mech and lead the charge for freedom on behalf of their friends and fellow countrymen,” said Peter Akemann, President of Skydance Interactive. “The response from our first two weeks on PSVR has been very encouraging and we are thrilled that today, Vive and Rift owners too can join the resistance and become the Archangel!”
Archangel is now available for purchase for Windows PC on the Oculus storefront and on Steam as a digital download. The game is also available to download on PlayStation Network.
