Leamington Spa, UK – Pixel Toys has today announced details of their Rift version release and accompanying brand new Skulls horde map for its popular VR shooter game, Warhammer 40,000: Battle Sister.
Embargo until 3rd June 2021, 1100 PST / 1900 GMT
Furthermore Warhammer 40,000 Battle Sister will be on sale on the Oculus store from the 3rd to the 10th of June, 2021.
To celebrate Warhammer Skulls this year Pixel Toys has added a brand new skull themed map; Heart of Dread, to its popular co-op horde mode. Battle with a friend in the deepest, darkest depths of a Chaos Space ship. Defeat wave after wave of insidious foes, upgrading weapons as you go and claim skulls and cleanse the heretic.
Finally, the much anticipated Rift version of Battle Sister has also been released. The Rift version is a graphically enhanced version for PC VR that looks utterly stunning. The Rift version of Battle Sister also has crossplay and cloud saving enabled meaning if you have already bought the Quest version you can dive right into the action continuing where you left off on your RIFT without paying any additional cost.
Pixel Toys has already had chart-topping success collaborating with Oculus on Drop Dead: Dual Strike, and worked with Games Workshop to create the groundbreaking Warhammer 40,000: Freeblade. Continuing to invest in its love of Warhammer 40,000, Pixel Toys is continuing to develop even more content for Warhammer 40,000: Battle Sister.
