HTC Vive has announced that Knockout League will be the first Vive Studios title to come to all three major VR platforms*.
The full release of Knockout League – Vive Studios and Grab Games’ arcade-style boxing game built from the ground up for VR – is launching on Vive, Oculus and PlayStation VR. Now the greater VR community can step into the ring and face off against a cast of fierce competitors in a game that will test their reflexes while offering a brisk workout.
The single-player boxing game pits you against nine competitors, ranging from classic boxers to fantastic creatures, each with their own fighting styles and behaviors. With each win, players unlock the ability to challenge stronger, faster and tougher versions of each opponent in Grudge Match mode.
Vive Studios is HTC Vive’s development and publishing initiative for VR content, focused on supporting developers who are creating excellent games, entertainment, and educational content. Their mission is to discover and empower development talent and give everyone access to content that pushes the boundaries of VR.
Vive Studios content is intended for all major VR platforms, making the decision to publish Knockout League on PSVR, Oculus, and Vive a no-brainer. Their goal is to support the developer ecosystem and push them to generate revenue and build a community around their game.
*Please note that the game will only be launching on PSVR in North America on the 13th, with EU to follow.
