While standing on the edge of a cliff, I look up and point my hand upwards as a grappling hook extends to connect to a floating orb. As I’m propelled through the air, I look down and launch a volley of grenades towards a group of enemies that were trying to capture the node at my base. Everyone immediately disperses. I take out a duo to my left after switching to my sidearm, and my teammate snipes the third enemy on my right. Just like that, we’re back in control.
Moments like these featuring a vast armory of weapons are now at my fingertips thanks to Larcenauts, the just-released team-based hero shooter from Impulse Gear for the Oculus Quest and Rift Platforms. The developers behind this chaotic slice of carnage are also the masterminds behind critically-acclaimed PSVR shooter Farpoint, and now they’re doubling down on competitive thrills to really make Larcenauts shine.
