Steam New Release: Crowe: The Drowned Armory

The Crowe: The Drowned Armory has been released over Steam for the HTC Vive. It is a virtual reality title developed by The Rogue Initiative, and is described as a “cinemative VR experience”.

The Rogue Initiative welcome you to experience the vibrant and mysterious world of Crowe in VR. Room scale puzzles, tactical bow and shield combat and gorgeous cinematic visuals will sweep you to an alien world where science fiction meets high fantasy!

This is said to be the first installment of an episodic, single player title. Crowe: The Drowned Armory take place on the green planet of Jayde. Galactic wars has been raging around it, but the remote planet has remained largely unaffected and safe, thanks to its advanced orbital cloaking array. Unfortunately the cloaking array which has been protecting them for the past 1000 years, has been damaged; exposing the colony to outer space attack.

In chapter one, The Drowned Armory, players will team up with A.M.I. (Artificial Maintenance Intelligence), a long-dormant techno-fairy. Use VR motion controls to fight off an armada of alien attackers using a powerful energy bow and mystical shield. 

Help AMI restore power to an underwater reactor core, reactive a giant mechanized robot guardian and defeat the dragon that dwells at the bottom of the flooded, derelict temple… the Drowned Armory.

It is promised that in the future, new weapons, leaderboard and an arcade-style “Survival” mode will be added too. 

Crowed: The Drowned Armory is up with a limited time 25% off.
