Team-based online multiplayer Smashbox Arena will be having a free Steam weekend for Oculus Rift and HTC Vive players in celebration of the Zotac Cup Masters.
Smashbox Arena will headline a virtual reality (VR) esport exhibition match during the upcoming tournament on 2nd June 2017. Zotac, HTC Vive, ESL and BigBox VR are creating a VR invitational that’ll be globally livestreamed on Twitch. Four of the top Smashbox Arena players from around the world will be meeting at Computex, Taipei, Taiwan, to fight it out using the ZOTAC VR GO wireless backpack PC.
So prior to that BigBox VR will be letting players around the world jump into the Smashbox Arena for free, starting Thursday, 18th May, running through to Sunday, 21st May.
If you haven’t played Smashbox Arena before it’s a frantic first-person shooter (FPS) with over the top physic-driven power-ups. While its core mode is the multiplayer, the title also features a single-player story mode, with the solo option including three difficulty levels to work through, that’ll unlock further customisation options for characters.
Earlier this month BigBox VR announced a Playstation VR version is on its way, scheduled to arrive this summer, although it won’t feature cross-platform gameplay.
The Zotac Cup Masters will be streamed via Twitch on Friday, 2nd June 2017 at 11pm PT/ 3rd June, 7am GMT.
