Meta Quest :

X8 is a VR multiplayer hero shooter game that offers gamers customizable loadouts of weapons, armor, items, and abilities, allowing players to equip their heroes before the battle begins. Additionally, each hero holds three special abilities and their hero-specific items offer situational advantages. Teams use an array of strategies to penetrate enemy defenses to deploy ‘The Syphon’ at specific sites on the map during an attack or deactivate it within 30 seconds using ‘The Defuser’ during defense. The team that eliminates all attackers or disrupts the deployment process to score the most points over the course of the 14-round game is declared the winner.

Masaru Ohnogi, Thirdverse CBO and Executive Producer on X8, said: “The official release of X8 is something gamers have been waiting for – a perfect blend of action with incredible versatility, strategy and customizable gameplay. The release has been highly anticipated by the growing X8 community and we're looking forward to seeing player reactions during this Early Access stage. We're also excited to be partnering with VAL for X8's first VR esports tournament. Together we’ll bring players from all over the world for an immersive experience.”
