A version of Zero Caliber VR (2018), the military shooter from A-Tech Cybernetic (2020) developers XREAL Games, is coming to Oculus Quest on May 13th, 2021.

Zero Caliber VR first came to PC VR back in 2018, launching its story-based campaign to ‘very positive’ reviews via Steam Early Access and the Oculus Store for Rift.

Hungary-based indie Xreal says Quest 2 enhancements will include physically based rendering (PBR) textures on the weapons and hands at launch, with more enhancements coming in post-release updates. The studio says it’s also planning “quite a few post-release updates with new content/game mode and improvements.”
