Dark Eclipse

Free-to-play virtual reality multiplayer online battle arena game Dark Eclipse will launch for PlayStation VR via the PlayStation Store worldwide on September 25, developer Sunsoft announced.

Here is an overview of the game, via Sunsoft:


Created by true fans of the genre, Dark Eclipse is the first Multiplayer Online Battle Arena (MOBA) created for PlayStation VR. Dark Eclipse blends classic MOBA gameplay with the deep strategic core of real-time strategy (RTS) games and wraps it up with highly precise controls built for tight split-second decision making in competitive play. The game’s fast-paced battles take place in the realm of Oldus, a once peaceful and prosperous world suddenly dragged into chaos by fierce natural disasters and seemingly everlasting darkness known as the “Dark Eclipse.” Now, players battle to either save or destroy Oldus. Japanese developer Sunsoft is celebrating its 40th anniversary, a rare milestone in game development, by reemerging into Western markets with its passion project Dark Eclipse.
