Welcome to the sixth Beta for OrbusVR: Reborn beginning Monday March 25th at 12 PM (Noon) US Central Time! We've got a whole lot of new content for you to test, including class improvements, two new dungeons, new missions, and more!
Important Note: The OrbusVR: Reborn Beta is currently open to all current owners of OrbusVR. If you have previously purchased the game and logged in via your Steam or Oculus account, you will have access. If you don't own the game and want to participate in the Beta, you can purchase it and receive immediate access. Since OrbusVR: Reborn is a free update to all existing OrbusVR owners, it's basically like pre-ordering the new game.
Installing the Beta
Installing the Beta is relatively easy and straightforward. Just download the OrbusVR: Reborn Beta Launcher here:
Then unzip that file to anywhere on your computer (we recommend your Desktop for ease of access; avoid places like the Program Files directory that require Administrator permissions). Once it's unzipped, open it up and run the "OrbusVR_Launcher.exe" file in the folder.
You'll be prompted to log in to your OrbusVR account. Assuming you are successful and that it detects that you own the game, the Beta files will begin to download. The total download size is around 2.5GB.
Once the files are installed, you'll be able to press the Launch button to get into the game! It's that easy!
During the Beta Test
During the test itself, please be sure to keep an eye on our forums. We've set up a category and will be making posts asking for specific feedback on different areas of the game. We'll also have a general technical support thread if you run into any issues while attempting to install or play the beta.
(Note that the servers will not be online until 12 PM Noon US Central Time on Monday, so before then you will see a "Server Offline" message.)
Since the last test we've added two new dungeons, overhauled all of the combat disciplines, added new recipes, and more. Also note that any previous Beta characters have been wiped, while your current character from the base OrbusVR game has been imported for you to play.

- Overall thoughts on the game as we approach launch
Of course we welcome all of your questions and comments, but the above are the areas we are most focused on for this test, and therefore that feedback will be the most helpful to use right now.
