gamrFeed - 4 hours 18 min ago

Sony announced No Heroes Allowed! VR will launch for the PlayStation VR on October 17 in North America and Europe.

Tweet

Here is an overview of the game:

Become the God of Destruction in a unique real time strategy game utilizing PlayStation VR. Breed monsters to invade human territories, seen in a diorama-like view through the eyes of the God of Destruction. Together with Badman and Badmella, work towards total world domination.

Begin your quest by raising monsters and using them to invade human territories, vanquish the defending heroes and bring the human bases under your control. As a God, the player must maintain an ecosystem through a food chain of breeding weaker monsters to feed invading monsters. The player can interfere with this chain of life and death to raise monsters however they like in their attempts to conquer the world.

Key Features:

  • Enjoy a new take on real time strategy from the expansive view of a god, in a unique VR experience that opens up before your eyes in a diorama-like view.
  • Subjugate Monsters and Achieve World Domination! – Breed monsters and employ them to invade the human territories.
  • The Tides of Battle – Use your divine powers to take care of the monsters under your dominion. A careless God of Destruction will leave the world vulnerable to heroes that will defeat your monsters and take their lands back.
