At Facebook Connect today a new VR shooter was announced that takes place in the long and storied universe of Warhammer 40,000.

The game, called Warhammer 40,000: Battle Sister, is slated to launch on Rift and Quest at some point later this year. The developers Pixel Toys say the narrative-driven shooter will offer both single and multiplayer modes.

In Battle Sister, players don the power armor and wargear of Sister Ophelia, a veteran Sister of Battle. The studio says players will battle through “an epic story where Ophelia searches for her lost twin sister and fights for the future of humanity itself.”

“The immersive experience that VR provides allows fans and new initiates alike to the Warhammer universe alike to experience brutal action gameplay across the majestic and grim expanses of the Warhammer 40,000 universe,” Pixel Toys say.

Battle Sister is said to include iconic wargear such as Bolters, Plasma Pistols, Flamers, Las Rifles, Power Swords, and Chainswords. Powerful abilities, such as Acts of Faith, will let players do things like slow time, create a force field, and push back enemies and objects.

Pixel Toys is also known for its work on flatscreen titles Warhammer 40,000: Freeblade, Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Realm War, Gunfinger, and VR game franchise Drop Dead.

Facebook Lowers Price of Enterprise-focused Quest to $800

With the revelation of Quest 2, Facebook has quietly knocked down the entry price for its business-focused version of the headset.

Facebook only just made its Oculus for Business program openly available back in May, which basically let anyone buy a business-focused 128GB version of the original Quest for $1,000. That’s double the price of the consumer version, but that comes along with specialized software, licenses, and support for enterprises.

Now less than four months later, Facebook has brought the entry price down to $800, which now includes the 256GB version of Quest 2—again, at double the price of the same storage option available to consumers.

Like with the original $1,000 Quest for Business, this comes along with the need to sign up for a subscription to the company’s enterprise-grade software and support, which is renewable annually for $180 per year—first year included with purchase. That includes backend management software so a company can manage a fleet of Quest headsets with things such as deploying and updating apps, managing settings, and monitoring headset status.

In addition to the new hardware, Facebook has assembled a fleet of independent software vendors (ISVs) specializing in areas such as 3D modeling, product design, employee training, data visualization, and remote work applications—all of the sort of fields enterprises may look to address with an immersive headset.

It seems with the entry of Quest 2, Facebook is renewing focus on the platform’s potential use as a work and productivity tool. The company announced the release of Infinite Office, a collection of software tools which may make working in VR easier and more natural, with things such as variable Passthrough and support for a mixed reality keyboard of sorts, which lets you see and type normally while in VR.

Whether Infinite Office makes its way to the Business (with a capital ‘B’) version of the headset or not, it’s clear Facebook is pursuing enterprise applications for its platform with a hardened resolve that, if its competition doesn’t watch out, may make a Facebook-built headset the only logical choice for companies looking for a VR solution in the near term.


Thanks to Antony Vitillo of VR/AR publication Skarred Ghost for pointing us to the news.
