Asgard's Wrath Trailer - Looks Awesome

Forget comparisons to Horizon Zero Dawn's Aloy for a moment, Asgard's Wrath looks pretty sweet.

Become the next great Asgardian god as you immerse yourself in the legendary world of Norse mythology. Sharpen your swordplay and bring your own fighting style into the fray with next-level combat depth. Possess different classes of mortal heroes, solve larger-than-life puzzles, and transform animals into warrior companions that you lead into battle.

This is the deep action-adventure you’ve been waiting for, with over 30 hours of gameplay.

Answer the call, Asgardian. God-scale VR awaits!




System Specs: RTX 2080 ti , i7 9700K CPU, 16 GB DDR 4 RAM, Win 10 64 Bit OS.

    I was just about to make a similar thread - I gotta be faster!  :D



    It's made by the team behind Marvel Powers United (Sanzaru Games), but this time with focus on singleplayer:

    "In Asgard's Wrath, you’ll battle as a mortal and rise as a god in a Norse-inspired action adventure with a heavy helping of RPG elements. And it‘s coming to Rift in 2019."
    Source: https://www.oculus.com/blog/announcing-asgards-wrath-the-latest-from-oculus-studios/

    "Asgard's Wrath hopes to bring a full, uncompromised action journey to the Oculus Rift with a full-length campaign, side quests, boss battles, and more steeped heavily in Norse mythology."
    Source: https://www.gameinformer.com/2019/02/05/asgards-wrath-is-virtual-realitys-promising-new-step

    2019 could truly be an awesome year for VR!

    I'm going to be all over this! I love anything to do with the Norse, Celtic, Roman or Greek gods.

    Got me in trouble at school lol. I went to a Roman Catholic school and in one of my essays I wrote that it made more sense to believe in a polytheist religion than a monotheist religion. It didn't go down too well and I had to have a meeting with the Priest that did all of their superstitious worshipping nonsense. Let's just say he didn't convince me that he was talking any sort of sense at all lol :D :D :D

    Dang, and here I was convinced that all those rumors about Oculus "shelving" the Rift was true. Whoopsy!

    The game is just now placed in the "Coming Soon" section in the Oculus Store. That was a bit of a surprise - at least I've never heard of the game before this week, and then it's arriving in a short time?

    I do hope the game is awesome and that the press has enough time to cover the game - awesome VR games can't get enough publicity!

    Says Coming Soon 07/2019.

    I'm going to be all over this and as I'm playing I'm going to be sticking two fingers up at Father Farmer and the now defunct Holy Cross RC School lol :D

    Ok, that kinda makes sense - but 5 months from now, is that soon? Really?

    Like going to the pub and saying to the wife, "I'll be home soon" :D

    Glad that it's a single player game, there aren't anywhere near enough single player VR games around imo.

    I'll just take a nap to reduce the waiting time for the game - please wake me up soon, thanks!

    I read that wrong the first time, and was shocked and mystified about what you were planning to do to Father Farmer. :o
    me too :tongue:

    Though you are more than slightly incoherent, I agree with you Madam,
    a plum is a terrible thing to do to a nostril.

    I'd put money on November this year or Spring next year.
