VR Mech Brawler ‘UNDERDOGS’ Launches January 25

The highly anticipated virtual reality (VR) game UNDERDOGS is set to launch on January 25, 2024. The game, developed by One Hamsa, was first revealed during the 2023 Meta Quest Gaming Showcase and quickly became a fan favorite due to its unique cel-shaded art style and gritty cyberpunk setting.

UNDERDOGS is a single-player first-person roguelike game that immerses players in a world of underground mech fighting. Players can wrap themselves in five tons of metal and rampage through a dark scene of underground fighting pits. The game offers over 100 items and power tools for players to customize their mech, providing a unique and immersive gaming experience.

The game’s narrative revolves around two brothers in trouble. A cryptic piece of data finds its way into one of their brains, and an AI begins taking over his consciousness. They head out from London to New Brakka in search of a cure, but they need to claw their way up the mech-fighting food chain to survive.

The game’s physics-based combat system and arm-based locomotion keep players immersed in the action. The more powerful your punches, the more damage you’ll deal.

UNDERDOGS will be available on Meta Quest 2, 3, and Pro, as well as PC VR headsets on Steam. Pre-orders are now open, offering a 10% discount off the purchase price and an exclusive piece of gorilla bling for your mech.

The game is a significant departure from One Hamsa’s inaugural VR offering, Racket: Nx. However, the developer’s talent for taking a broad idea and transforming it into something uniquely fit for VR is evident in UNDERDOGS.

Fans are hyped that the VR year kicks off with such a great release. With just two more weeks until the launch, players can soon walk the dodgy streets of New Brakka for themselves and experience the thrill of VR mech brawling in UNDERDOGS.

The possible expansion of the game content and adding new features like multiplayer will be evaluated based on its performance on the market, so that developers can afford that kind of undertaking. But they consider such a possibility as well as the possibility to release the game on PS VR2. For the latter, they have a devkit, but bureaucratically it will take a while to get through to Sony.
