After revealing that Ultrawings 2 would be arriving for virtual reality (VR) headsets in early 2022, developer Bit Planet Games has kept to that window. Today, the studio has confirmed the Meta Quest 2 launch date will occur on 3rd February.
The announcement was made via a new trailer showcasing more gameplay and all the vehicles you’ll be able to fly. There’s the microlight-style Phoenix, the vibrant and sleek Comet; stunt plane the New Hawk, the Stallion – very reminiscent of WWII fighters – and the Dragonfly helicopter.
As Bit Planet Games has previously mentioned, Ultrawings 2 will feature all-new, hand-crafted islands with a range of gameplay modes to help explore them. Test your hand/eye coordinating by flying whilst shooting balloons as fast as possible, perform amazing stunts, try to land on difficult platforms and so much more.
Bit Planet Games is taking its VR classic to the next level with this sequel, adding three times the amount the team claims. Even with the new stuff, some things don’t change. Ultrawings 2 will still offer a mix of simulator and arcade control schemes, with a refined motion control system to make flying each vehicle as fun as possible. If you’ve got the kit available, Ultrawings 2 will also support HOTAS on PC.
As you’ll notice in the trailer though, only the Meta Quest 2 is mentioned, with no indication regarding the PC VR version. Steam does list a “February 2022” launch window so if it’s not due on the same date it can’t be far away.
The launch continues an exciting start for Meta Quest in 2022. Titles like Final Space VR – The Rescue have already arrived with the likes of Avicii Invector: Encore Edition about to launch. And then there’s the most recent v37 update adding a bunch of new features to the platform.
