Since Snow Fortress for the HTC Vive is Early Access, there are still a load features that the developers have planned including the ability to build you own miniature snow fortress and your own army to do the fighting for you.
“We’re hoping to also let you share your fortress with other players and see how it does compared to their fortress. Beyond this new mode, we are also planning to add an extra Snow Fort levels, improve the graphics across the game, add in a nicer ground surface, add more enemy types and more tools/weapons for you to use.”
You’ll be battling it out across different game modes including Fort and Survival, where there are two types of slingshots, a water bottle to heal your fort, and a shield. The developers say that the game in its current state is good for around two hours of gameplay.
Snow Fortress will remain in Early Access for four months in total before being released, and the developers advise that it may include a price increase, so best to snap it up now if you’re interested in VR snowball fights.
