Update #4 – New AI, VFX improvements, adjustable belt and much more!

Hey everyone,
 
A lot has happened in this update, so let’s get right into it!
 
The first thing we’d like to point out is the new AI: we worked really hard to make noticeable changes in their behaviour and combat capabilities. As a result, they now behave more realistically: they stagger when getting hit, they are able to shoot while hiding behind covers, they sprint into cover and much more – the difference is night and day!

This also means that the game became a tiny bit more difficult, so buckle up!
We also added a much requested option: it is now possible to manually adjust the weapon holster- and ammo pouch position (both vertically and horizontally).
 
We squeezed a lot of graphical improvements into this update as well!
‘Inspection’ is now a night map with an awesome lighting setup, all ‘Operation Woodpecker’ maps got a foliage rework, ‘Thunderstorm’ and ‘Frostbite’ got weather effects to further increase immersion, and we added a lot of VFX, lighting and atmosphere improvements all around.
 
Here’s everything that happened in this update:

Zero Caliber: Reloaded

 

Zero Caliber: Reloaded is a story based military shooter with a full-blown single player campaign and Co-operative mode (up to 4 players), developed for Oculus Quest 1 and Oculus Quest 2.
Rise through the ranks to unlock a wide variety of weapons and attachments, customize them, climb, jump, crouch, shoot, get to cover, reload, invite your friends, repeat – be prepared for a mind-blowingly immersive experience!

 

REALISTIC COMBAT SYSTEM

MOVE YOUR BODY TO FIGHT AND FIND COVER

 

Handle, aim and reload your weapons with real-life movements! We modeled the in-game weapons based on their real-life counterparts paying extreme attention to detail. Each weapon has its unique reloading method that you have to learn and practice to fully master them.

If you fancy explosions, just grab a grenade and throw it at the enemy. After you pulled the pin with your teeth of course.

Stay in the open for too long and you’re dead. Try to find cover instead, duck, crouch, sneak, peek around a corner, clear obstacles with real-life movements. Military combat isn’t all about shooting. Being aware of your surroundings, the terrain, and working together with your squadmates are all part of a successful mission. 

 

REALISTIC WEAPONS

CUSTOMIZE YOUR FAVOURITE GUN

 

Everyone has a unique playstyle. Is accuracy your thing? Put a laser sight on your assault rifle and take accurate shots in semi-automatic mode, or just grab a sniper rifle. Are you more of a shoot first, ask later type of person? Take a shotgun, or dual wield your machine guns in fully automatic firing mode. Be careful though, recoil can make your job really difficult! Combine your favourite gun with your favourite attachments on-the-fly to find out which variation suits you the most!

 

THE STORY

DIVE INTO AN ENGAGING DYSTOPIAN ADVENTURE IN THE NOT TOO DISTANT FUTURE

 

Water is life. Someone should’ve made that clear before humanity started poisoning Earth with microplastics. Now water is death. People are fighting for drinkable water, for survival.

The military tried their best to keep order, but inevitably they got overwhelmed. That’s when mercenaries appeared.. then entire private armies.. and then when hope started to fade away came the religious cults. The most fearsome of all is a secretive organization worshipping Tlaloc, the aztec God of rain. The “Tlalokii”, as they call themselves. Their motto? “Join us or perish”. What is even worse, they know something that can change the fate of humanity.

Be part of this action-packed, story-driven VR adventure where you fight alongside your fellow soldiers trying to keep order… or what’s left of it anyway.

 

 

A constantly developing military VR FPS experience that will surely make you forget that you are in a video game!
