New Windlands 2 trailer teases VR grappling hook excitement, preorders live now

Take advantage of a 15% discount before the game goes live next week.


Some earlier VR experiences still remain and the best examples the platform has to offer and Windlands by Psytec Games stands among the best. The game's grappling hook mechanics are engaging, exciting, and could make you wonder when a full Spider-man experience will come to VR. While there's no movement on the Spider-Man front, VR consumers are getting another dose of grappling hook goodness with Windlands 2 and preorders are live now on Oculus Home.

If you decide to be an early worm to the Windlands 2 party, you'll be able to take advantage of a 15% discount which brings the game's price from $29.99 to $25.49. The team also dropped a new trailer (embedded above) that shows off a lot of the new features coming in the sequel. Here's a snapshot of what you can expect:

  • Up to four player Co-Op.
  • New Bow Weapon to use alongside the hooks in epic titan battles.
  • Fully voiced storyline with NPCs and world events.
  • Full Original Soundtrack
  • Optional skill based Speed Run Races and collection challenges with Leaderboards.
  • Multiple advanced modes, including "no hooks", "one life" and "hook anything".
  • Collectables, Easter Eggs and Achievements that reward exploration with new hooks as rewards for completers.

The preorder page is live on Oculus right now and Windlands 2 is due to launch September 12, 2018, on the Oculus Rift. Stay tuned to Shacknews for additional updates.
