Blaston is a game that we’ve talked a lot about a lot here at VR Fitness Insider over the course of 2020, and that’s for a good reason. Resolution Games’ PvP shooter has proven to be one of the most enjoyable VR titles of the year is a fantastic game to play with friends. Fortunately, Blaston will today be opened up to a whole new audience rather than those simply playing via Oculus Quest.
Yes, after a few months of waiting, Blaston has today finally released on Steam. Previously, the game was only available for Oculus Quest with Resolution Games promising that it would come to Steam further down the road. Well, that time has now finally come which means that those who own Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, and Valve Index headsets can play Blaston for themselves.
“When we launched Blaston, we had high hopes that the community would come together with this game, but their skill, sportsmanship and dedication has greatly surpassed our wildest expectations,” said Mathieu Castelli, Resolution Games’ CCO about today’s development. “Players are spending hours in the game honing their skills – and endurance! -, learning new tricks to improve their strategy, finding their strengths and weaknesses, and really defining their play style as individuals.”
You can check out Blaston’s launch trailer for Steam right here if you’d like to get a look at the game in action:
While the release on Steam is likely the most noteworthy development with Blaston, the game itself has received a sizable new update. One such feature in the update includes a spectator mode, which will now allow players to watch other matches. “We are really looking forward to spectator mode in particular turning into a close-knit community where players can learn from the best by watching others who’ve worked so hard to master the skills needed to be among the top VR duelists in the highly competitive world of Blaston,” Castelli said specifically of this new feature.
As for other changes in the update, the Ozo Lounge has now grown quite a bit in size. Previously, this area of the game where players could drop in and hang out with one another was only available to a few members at a time. Now, all players can hop into the Ozo Lounge at any point in time to challenge other players or their friends via a simple fist bump.
Lastly, new customization options for Blaston have also rolled out today as well. This includes new character models, weapons, banner, and platform changes. So if you have been getting tired of your current in-game look, this should help to spice things up.
We’ve mentioned it before, but one of the best parts of Blaston is that it keeps you incredibly active while also boasting some very enjoyable multiplayer. This means that if you’re looking to stay in shape and burn some calories, it’s very easy to do so while playing with a friend.
Once again, Blaston is available now across Oculus Quest, Oculus Rift, Valve Index, and HTC Vive headsets. The game should set you back a mere $9.99 on Steam if you opt to pick it up.
