Onward’s Key Features
Take to the battlefield with your friends, no matter what platform you’re playing on. Players who use the Oculus Quest will be able to join their friends using Oculus Rift or SteamVR compatible headsets in battle.
Solo and co-op game modes
Take on AI enemies to hone your skills against AI opponents. Chase down all enemies in the Hunt or hold off the enemy forces as you wait for extraction in an Evac mission. Explore maps freely or go to the shooting range to familiarize yourself with the wide variety of weapons in the game — all of which are unique and require knowledge to operate.
Up-to-ten player multiplayer gameplay
Take to the online battlefield in a high-stakes clash with up-to-ten people and best your enemies on a strategic and tactical level. Choose from one of three objective-based modes to fight for control of an Uplink station, get the VIP to safety (or prevent it), or secure an area long enough to upload a code through your tablet.
Two unique factions with a wide variety of weapons
Onward focuses on the battle between a militaristic MARSOC faction with access to modern weaponry including the AUG, M16, P90 and the M249 light machine gun, and the insurgent Volk forces who rely on tried and true powerhouses like the AKS74U, the Makarov, and even an RPG launcher. This is only a small sample of what awaits in-game.
