Survios, the VR studio behind Raw Data (2017) and Creed: Rise to Glory (2018), today announced that their upcoming pirate ship battler finally has a release date; it’s slated to arrive on September 10th for most major VR headsets.

When the studio initially announced the closed beta, it wasn’t certain exactly which platforms the game would officially support. Now, the studio reveals, the game is slated to launch on September 10th for PSVR, Oculus Rift, and HTC Vive.

A version for Quest is also in the making, although its release date has yet to be revealed.

If you haven’t had a chance to jump into any of the game’s closed betas, check out our latest hands-on from E3 to get a taste of what the nautical battler has in store.

If you’re looking for the TL;DR though, here’s the skinny: Battlewake tosses you into a either a single player or co-op campaign filled with boss battles (massive Krakens anyone?). It also boasts multiplayer deathmatches as well, although when it comes to either co-op or multiplayer matches you’ll be piloting your own ship and controlling all manner of weapons and navigation yourself (i.e. everyone gets their own boat).

There’s plenty of opportunities to upgrade weapons, ultimates, and ship-specific stuff like defense points, health points, etc. The last bit: will it make you sick? The answer: probably not. Survios typically puts user comfort at the forefront of their games, with Battlewake being no exception. Again, for the full explanation, head over to our full hands-on piece.
