Gameplay for the upcoming multiplayer shooter Solaris: Offworld Combat was revealed during today's Upload VR Showcase. The showcase highlights games of various genres coming to VR platforms from a number of different developers. 

Solaris: Offworld Combat is an eight-player multiplayer shooter that pits two teams of four against one another. The gameplay looks suitably fast-paced and thrilling, with teams defending areas on the map against one another and earning points based on objective control and kills. All of this takes place in a retro-futurist sci-fi map with plenty of shortcuts and secrets to find. You can take a look at the trailer for Solaris: Offworld Combat right here:

What does gameplay look like in Solaris: Offworld Combat?

The gameplay trailer shown during the conference depicted a futuristic sci-fi environment in which teams battled against one another using old-school shooter staples like powerups and jump pads. If you're a big fan of arcade shooters like Quake or Unreal Tournament, it looks like you'll find plenty to love here. This is alpha footage, so plenty is subject to change before the game actually lands later this year, but the foundation is looking pretty solid.

You'll be able to get your hands on Solaris: Offworld Combat this year. The PC version, which launches for Oculus Rift via Home and Oculus Quest, will launch in August. It'll have crossplay and dedicated servers. Solaris: Offworld Combat is also coming to PlayStation VR, but First Contact Entertainment hasn't dated that version yet, so we'll bring you more info on that as we get it. In the meantime, if you're an old-school shooter fan, it's safe to start getting excited.
