OrbusVR: Reborn will officially launch on Tuesday, April 23rd at 12 PM (Noon) US Central Time.
If you already own a copy of OrbusVR on either the Steam or Oculus store, then you will see it update to OrbusVR: Reborn tomorrow for free. In the meantime, we'll be releasing the Reborn patch for download via those storefronts later tonight, so that you have time to get it downloaded and installed ahead of launch.
If you have not yet purchased a copy and want to join in, the Oculus and Steam storefronts will be re-enabling purchases of the game no later than 1 hour before launch, so you should have time to purchase it and hop in right as things kick off.
When you first get in-game, you will find that all of your existing characters from OrbusVR have been imported, and that each of them has a Character Refresh available. This feature allows you to change the appearance of your character as well as the name. Use it wisely, as it can only be used once!
Upon logging in, you'll find yourself outside of the new Highsteppe area. A few things to note for veteran players:
- If you previously had levels in the Fisher class, that has been converted to reputation for the appropriate activity.
- If you participated in the beta and earned either the Dev Slayer or Super Leveler: Reborn achievements, speak with the Backer Rewards Vendor to receive your achievements, titles, and/or capes.
- If you achieved the minimum 18,000 points during the Defend the Realm event in the original game, speak to the Backer Rewards vendor to get your cape, crown, and pet.
- Your quests and talent choices have been reset.
We'll be around in-game and on the forums tomorrow throughout the launch to offer support and just hang out with the community. We're very excited to share this next chapter of the game with you all, and we can't wait to see what the future holds for OrbusVR.
