The Game’s Core Experience
BOSS FIGHTERS provides players the option to control a VR-powered Boss or team up as PC Fighters. The game emphasizes its unique asymmetric action, where gameplay changes based on the device.
Roles for VR Players
Using a VR headset, players can assume the role of the Boss. In this role, players can create chaos for Fighters, using various in-game weapons. They also have the opportunity to challenge a team of PC players.
Roles for PC Players
On the other hand, PC players collaborate as Fighters. Their objective is to defeat the Boss. Fighters can navigate through arenas, recharge their weapons, and dodge the Boss’s attacks. Additionally, they can collect rewards to upgrade weapons and personalize their avatars.
Understanding Asymmetric Gameplay
Asymmetric gameplay refers to the varied experience based on the device. In BOSS FIGHTERS, VR players exclusively assume the role of the Boss, while PC users can be Fighters. A VR device isn’t a prerequisite for the game, but it’s needed for the Boss role.
