Load your rocket launchers and gas up your tanks, the World War Toons open beta is launching October 13 on PlayStation VR. That’s right, World War Toons is going to be a PlayStation VR launch title, and it won’t cost you a dime because it’s free to play!
The Axis and Allies are pitted against each other in this cartoony multiplayer first-person shooter. Battle atop airships, under bridges, and inside windmills fighting as one of our unique and comedic classes. From the lightning quick Officer to the silent but deadly Sniper, every player will be able to make a mark in their quest to be the best. And if the enemies have you pinned down in a corner, don’t fret because with the press of a button you’ll be able to transform into a tank and turn the tide of battle.
If you’re looking to add a bit of punch to your domination, why not mow down your enemies on a rideable rocket? Boom with delight as each enemy you hit gets pinned to the front. After that, drench yourself in radioactive waste and zip around the map damaging anyone around you. Want to make a memorable entrance? We’ve got a huge red bomb named Grinnade that chases your enemies down to give them a nice, big, explosive hug.
World War Toons has been designed for virtual reality since day one so that you will be fully immersed in our chaotically cartoony world. But if you weren’t able to nab a PlayStation VR pre-order, don’t worry — you can still join the fight in our non-VR version absolutely free.
Before we go, we want to give you more than just a nugget of World War Toons information today, so we’re cracking open the door to unveil our fourth level, Pyramid Scheme!
In this capture-the-flag type match, players will face off in ancient Egypt ruins, but with a bit of World War Toons flavor seasoned in. Instead of crossing the road for a bland old flag, you’ll flock to capture the free-range Ra Chicken and race back to your base in this first-to-three match. However, you won’t be able to just wing it and score a point. Blistering lasers, rising lava pits, and scorching fireballs will turn up the heat as you and your team fly to your coop. Oh, and don’t forget about the swinging blades. If they skewer you, they’re certain to put you in a fowl mood. Chicken pun.
We’ll see you October 13 as we hatch on PlayStation VR!
