Do you have what it takes to survive?

BACKSTORY In the 23rd century, mankind has spread to the corners of the galaxy. Having been pushed too far, one human faction has begun its fight for independence, sparking a civil war between the newly formed FCR and the domineering ACC. However, not all battles are fought on the front lines: as FCR operative James Weston, you've been deployed far from civilized space, sent to investigate the disappearance of an allied team on an unforgiving alien world. Dropped into the middle of the wilderness, relying on your wits may not be enough: you're going to want an arsenal, and the planet has everything you need to build one. An abundance of exotic ores and plants are ready to be turned into cutting edge workstations, mid-battle snacks, sturdy base defenses, and (of course) a dazzling array of high-tech weaponry. Between the savage creatures and merciless soldiers that roam the land, you'll need every bullet you can craft in order to come out on top. With these tools at your disposal, you'll have to pick up the trail of your compatriots, forging your way through a lush forest, descending into the bowels of the earth, trudging through a frigid land of ice, and beyond. Just be mindful of your body's needs - out here, thirst and starvation are as dangerous as claws and guns, and death isn't picky about how it gets you. For those undeterred, the world's secrets await discovery. Weston has a mission to accomplish: do you have what it takes to see it through?

Seeking Dawn is a somewhat flawed but overall incredibly enjoyable VR title. Graphically it's one of the best sci-fi VR games we've ever dived into, and overall the shooting and exploration prove that Seeking Dawn is much more than a pretty face. With around 14 hours of gameplay packed into a $40 package it's one of the longer VR experiences on the market and worth playing through solo or with friends.

Ultimately it's a great example of what can be done in VR and a well polished game.

On the one hand, Multiverse has created a beautiful world that is quite easy to get lost in. On the other hand, the multitude of gameplay mechanics rarely add up to something enjoyable.
