The announcement teases a rich story-driven campaign that builds upon the beloved elements from the original title, promising to take the parkour action formula even further.
A Glimpse into Airon City
In STRIDE: Fates, players assume the role of a parkour spec-ops officer navigating through the intricate environments of dystopian Airon City, which ranges from dilapidated slums to luxurious skyscrapers. The narrative plunges players into a world of gang power struggles, dirty family feuds, and corporate secrets, as they leverage their agility and combat skills to unravel the mysteries of their past.
Players will engage in high-stake missions involving exhilarating climbs, swift vaults through windows, and rapid slides down cables, all while being under the watchful eyes of snipers and drones.
The open-world locations offer not only a vivid viewing experience but also a plethora of challenges that test one’s reflexes in action-packed gameplay scenarios.
STRIDE: Fates introduces significant enhancements, including advanced levels of graphics and interactivity, thanks to the reworked STRIDE engine optimized for standalone VR.
Every aspect of the original game, including running, battling, and puzzle-solving, has seen refinements promising a groundbreaking leap in VR technology.
The game is slated for a holiday season release in 2023 on the Meta Quest platform, with a prospective launch window of November 2023. A Steam version is also in the pipeline, expected to be released in 2024, with a specific date to be announced.
