“Echo Arena” Second & Final Open Beta Weekend July 6th to 10th

The latest Oculus Blog entry announces that the Zero-g competition for Echo Arena‘s second and final open beta will last from July 6th to 10th, with the official release on July 20th (Oculus Store). This game from Ready at Dawn serves as the spin-off multi-player competitive title of Lone Echo (Oculus Store).

In Echo Arena—the fast-paced competitive multiplayer mode for Lone Echo—you’ll join a team of up to four other players and face off against the competition in a zero-gravity clash of robotic glory as you glide, boost, and punch your way to scoring goals in a breathtaking virtual arena. As a team sport, Echo Arena rewards players that work well together; with the incredible social expression offered by Touch, you’ll be able signal for a pass with a shout and a wave just as you naturally would, while throwing and catching the disc becomes a valuable skill to master. Even better though, Echo Arena is also full-contact sport: make a fist and use a swift punch to an opponent’s head to stun them, or grab onto another player’s back and catch a ride down-field. And of course, after you score a goal you can flaunt it with your own victory dance.
