Sharpen your blades and polish your armor, because players in POPULATION: ONE are about to get medieval with the launch of the massive Kingdom Age Update series of events on the Oculus Quest and Rift Platforms from BigBox VR today. Take a peek at what’s in store in the announcement trailer:
The Kingdom Age Update introduces a massive new medieval-themed setting to the map. The Bureau has once again made some major changes to the world and replaced the entire Complex 33 infrastructure and Ridgeline next to the Frontier from Season 2 in favor of an all-new setting. This will usher in a host of fresh character and weapon skins, four exciting events, and a brand-new weapon available on the map only during the Kingdom Age: the legendary sword Excalibur!
Immerse yourself in a fantastical world featuring a massive castle at its center. There’s the enormous interior Castle Grounds and throne room, the exterior walls and fortress towers, an open townsquare full of small structures, the rural medieval village outskirts, and dilapidated ruins surrounding the location.
Take a look at some of the new character and gun skins below:
Throughout the Kingdom Age Update, POPULATION: ONE will feature a rotating cycle of free events, and all events give players a chance to earn rewards. The first event that kicks off today runs until August 16 and it’s named Kingdom Conquest.
During the Kingdom Conquest event, players will earn points during matches by collecting crystals, dealing damage, and downing enemy players. As you collect more points throughout the event, you’ll unlock rewards like character skins and more. Roughly every three weeks a new event will start with new objectives, new rewards, and new ways to enjoy POPULATION: ONE with your friends in VR.
POPULATION: ONE is a thrilling battle royale shooter available exclusively in VR that lets you climb any surface, build walls and platforms in an instant, and fight to become the last team standing in a massive map that’s free to explore from top to bottom. With its innovative Vertical Combat System (VCS), you can even glide across the world in a wingsuit in between scaling buildings and finding the perfect vantage point.
Whether you’re a veteran POPULATION: ONE survivor or a brand new player that’s just getting your feet wet, there’s never been a better time to dive into the game than right now with the Kingdom Age Update.
