Eleven months after entering the Early Access phase, SSVR: The Last Hope is ready for a full release, and it’s even better, badder and more epic than we ever imagined. Thanks to the huge support of the gaming community our VR baby duckling grew to be a beautiful, giant, armed-to-the teeth swan with flaming eyes, and we can’t wait for everyone to jump in the final version.
The introduction of SSVR: The Last Hope to Early Access was just a tip of the iceberg, and since then the game has been expanded with many additions, including three planets – Shaanti, Valtos and Arcadia Minor – each with four unique levels and a new boss. Through each update, our team has introduced various different weapons, which got us to the point where Sam can use 17 cool alien-killing toys, including Sam’s trademark weapon – minigun – as well as double barrel and regular shotguns, a laser rifle, bow, sword, cannon and a shield for good measure. With the most recent Skills and Power-Ups update Sam got a chance to unlock 36 powerups and 190 weapon upgrades during his adventures.
With the epic final update, The Last Hope introduces randomly generated gameplay, which will be available on five existing and three new levels. This new gameplay option is split into three different modes – Arena, Endless Wave and Daily Challenge.
Arena – This mode allows players to enjoy endless variety thanks to randomly generated waves of enemies that ensure every playthrough is completely different. Players are challenged with 8 arenas consisting of 4 waves, each playable on 20 difficulties. Beating an arena difficulty awards a weapon upgrade icon.
Endless Wave – In this mode players will face an endless wave of enemies, trying to stay alive as long as possible, and get bragging rights over their peers via global leaderboards.
Daily Challenge – Endless wave on the arena map of the day, where each day a new set of enemies is served so that everyone playing faces exactly the same challenge and competes against the rest of the world.
Thanks to the co-op update Sam got a chance to call for help and play through any level with a partner, and with the update 1.0 players will be able to play with either Serious Sam or Serious Sammy.
