Frostpoint VR: Proving Grounds Open Beta Next Week

Publisher Thirdverse and developer inXile entertainment announce open beta plans for Frostpoint VR: Proving Grounds. They say players will be able to check out their upcoming team-based multiplayer shooter from September 28 to October 19. The game is virtual reality only, so this will require a Rift, Vive, or Index headset. An interesting twist here is that the test involves a "play to own" campaign, where players can earn a free copy of the final release version by achieving certain gameplay milestones during the beta. Here's the previously released Announcement Trailer and here are more details on the testing plan:

In Frostpoint VR: Proving Grounds, players are matched into 10v10-player teams that coordinate tactics through approach, strategy, and gear to dominate the enemy team through beautiful maps and engaging game modes like capture and control. Set in an abandoned military base in Antarctica, each team will gear up and set out to dominate the opposing team while protecting themselves from terrifying biomechanical creatures.

During the recent Frostpoint VR: Proving Grounds closed beta on Steam, players tested a wide variety of ​highly detailed pistols and rifles, realistically holding each with one or two hands to load, rack and fire away at enemies. During the open beta test, players will be able to engage with more weapons and tools to round out their arsenal, new enemies, two new maps and a new game mode (‘Attack and Defend’) that will be released later in the beta.

Frostpoint VR: Proving Grounds is planned for global release in ten languages in 2020 on Oculus Rift, HTC Vive VR, and Valve Index headsets.
