Lone Echo and Echo Arena launch next month


Two games, same universe

Earlier, Intel announced that Echo Arena, the multiplayer aspect of the virtual reality titleLone Echo, will be free for a limited time at launch. We now know that “launch” is July 20, only a month away! Lone Echowill cost $34.99 and will contain the illustrious Troy Baker’s voice as the AI.

I’m most excited for the movement mechanics in these titles, as the zero-g aspect allows for movement based on arm movements like pushing. Movement is a constant battle for VR developers, but there’s always interesting ideas like this to help circumvent the awkwardness.
