One of the most defining trends of the game industry over the last five or so years has been the rapid and all-encompassing rise of the battle royale genre. To put things lightly, it’s taken off like a rocket into the stratosphere with groups of players from all over the world dropping from orbit down onto maps to stake their claim on the crown.
There can be only one
In October 2020, right alongside the release of Oculus Quest 2, BigBox VR launched POPULATION: ONE (available now on the Oculus Quest and Rift Platforms as well as Steam). Just like in most other battle royale games, the setup in POPULATION: ONE is simple. You and your squad are sent down into a map that’s full of guns and gear to scavenge while you square off against rival squads to be the last team standing. The longer the match goes on, the smaller the safe zone gets, and the higher your chance of running into someone that wants you dead becomes. Eventually, there’s only one squad left standing.
