WELCOME TO THE FASTEST RPG SHOOTER EVER MADE Gunheart is an online co-op RPG shooter where you and your friends become customizable robotic bounty hunters trying to make a buck at the edge of the galaxy. Move across the battlefield at the speed of thought. Strafe, teleport, or boost jump anywhere and everywhere to cover kilometer long battlefields instantaneously. With teleport at your fingertips it’s easier than ever to grab the high ground and destroy the invaders. 10 unique weapons to unlock and master. Each weapon can be leveled up to unlock individual perks and additional weapon modification slots. Combine and dual-wield different side arms until you find your favorite combo. When taking on the bigger enemies, reach for a combo weapon like the chaingun or bow. 40+ weapon modifications means millions of combinations. Completely overhaul how each weapon functions and turn your favorites into custom death-dealing masterpieces - for example augment an ordinary rocket launcher with guided rockets, then slap on rapid-reloader, and top it off with a full-auto mod. 9 campaign and 11 challenge missions that will take you on an action packed tour of Planet Fortune while battling the diverse Anthromite menace. Encounter a wide variety of enemies and multiple bosses along the way while battling through several unique environments. Elite mode and weekly missions keep the challenge fresh even after you have mastered the campaign. Frenetic PVP battles pit you against other bounty hunters either in free-for-all or team-based skirmishes. Earn rewards and prestige titles for killing your fellow players - it’s a great way to cool off and show off after a long day of bounty hunting! 80+ cosmetics and 4 social gear to discover for your character. Hats, rig vests, and facial expressions enable you to customize your look and show off your achievements. Make some cool pixel art with the pixel gun, stage a celebration with the balloon gun, or just whack some fools in the face with the handy Mr. Fish. Grab any physical object and turn it into an adhoc weapon using the multi-tool. Explosive barrels littered throughout the environment make for great impromptu grenades. Or simply grab the nearest creature and chuck them off a cliff for a quick kill. Drop-in/drop-out co-op with dynamic difficulty makes it easy to join in with friends (or strangers) for some fun co-op shooting. You can always start a mission solo if you prefer to play as a lone wolf, or restrict the mission to just your friends list. VR players have a full suite of locomotion and comfort options that allow for comfortably play standing, seated, or room scale. A full set of control options allow users to easily switch between layouts, enable smooth motion and jump, or toggle comfort options such as dynamic "blinders". Cross-play across all platforms between desktop (non-VR), Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, and Windows MR. Jump in and start your bounty hunting career with PalCo today. The denizens of Planet Fortune are anxiously awaiting your arrival, why not stop in to say hi?

Overall I'm really impressed with Gunheart. It's easy to get caught up in the importance of the cross-play aspect, but the game itself is great fun. It's a solid shooter, which some great mechanics and customization that should keep players engaged for quite some time, at the very least long enough to get their money's worth.

Gunheart is an over-the-top arcade shooter that plays excellently in both 2D and VR modes, thanks to the inclusion of some tight and fluid controls.

We’re in an era of good shooters right now. There’s no reason to buy a mediocre one.

Gunheart has a lot of heart, and a lot to offer. The accommodation for players like myself in desktop mode is wonderfully done. Drifter Entertainment sets a standard that a game designed for VR shouldn’t stay exclusively there, and with the right game, can make it so those without can find a place in the game to still play with friends. Gunheart is fun from start to finish, except you won’t be putting it down anytime soon.
