Expanding support for its virtual reality (VR) collectible card game (CCG) Dragon Front, today High Voltage Software has announced that the title can now be played through Facebook Gamesroom for free.
Dragon Front came to Oculus Rift and Samsung Gear VR last year allowing owners of either headset to compete against one another. With the addition of Facebook Gameroom cross-platform gameplay is still supported, enabling even more players to do battle.
“We were the first game to offer cross-platform multiplayer across Rift and Gear VR when we first launched our open beta at Oculus Connect 3 conference last year. Making sure our players were able to match on a Rift against people on a Gear or desktop is an important feature we worked closely with Oculus and Facebook Gameroom team to implement,” said Eric Nofsinger, Chief Creative Officer at High Voltage Software in a statement. “Your level and stats carry over from one platform to another, so people who have been playing on Gear VR or Rift will be able to merge their accounts on Gameroom to continue their gameplay on the go.”
Featuring online multiplayer matches with global leaderboards or a single-player story campaign against AI, Dragon Front players construct a 30-card deck from over 460 characters, fortifications and spells, each with unique powers, traits, and creative strategies. Every deck also holds a legendary champion, whose cost diminishes as his side nears defeat, ensuring an epic comeback in the late minutes of every match.
“High Voltage Software is well-known to pioneer new technologies and platforms. Teaming up with Facebook to bring Dragon Front cross-platform from VR to desktop just made sense,” commented Chief Executive Officer Kerry J. Ganofsky. “Dragon Front represents an important milestone for our studio. Not only have we created a fantastic card game that’s easy to pick up and play, but we’ve also demonstrated the incredible versatility of the game for endless replay value.”
