Friday, 5 June 2020 — Budapest, Hungary: XREAL Games LLC (the creators of the Steam store Platinum-seller Zero Caliber VR) and 2ndGig announce today that they are working on Gambit!, a co-op action game for PC VR headsets that casts up to 4 players in a road movie style adventure full of tracks and guns and rock and roll.

Set in a pre-apocalyptic world slowly moving towards its demise, Gambit! follows four close-knit mercenaries, whose life is turned upside down after they blow their biggest assignment yet, infuriating their influential client.

Each of the three Chapters of the game – all of them comprised of three large maps – can be played by one to four players, with a strong emphasis on a diverse range of weapons and high-octane VR action. Each map has a ton of unlockable content, which can be accessed through effort and progress, greatly boosting replay value. The fast paced, easy to pick up single player and co-op campaign is complemented by a multiplayer deathmatch feature optimized for a seamless VR experience.

Gambit! will launch in 2021, with a gameplay reveal and more details coming this fall.
