Today we’re rolling out a new OrbusVR Demo on Steam. This demo allows anyone to play the game for free until Level 10 on all eight classes. Note that in addition to the level cap, demo users cannot trade with other players or use the Auction House.
It’s our hope that this will allow folks who have been on the fence about the game to get in and try it out, so if you have any friends that you have been wanting to play with, feel free to let them know about the demo so they can check it out.
After playing the demo, the full game can be purchased, and you can pick right back up where you left off to continue your journey toward max level. Note that the demo is on the Steam store but works with SteamVR (including Vive and Index) and Oculus Rift headsets. If you choose to purchase on the Oculus store after trying the demo, you can still continue from where you left off.
We’ve also put together a new quick-start guide video to help introduce new players to the game, which you can view here:
I did also want to re-iterate that we will continue to enforce the Code of Conduct in-game, and there will be less leniency on violations for demo users, so please report people if you see folks who are taking advantage of the free version to cause problems for the community.
We’re excited to see what effect the demo has on the game and we look forward to welcoming a lot of new folks to the world of Orbus!
