Caveman Studios, the team behind the tactical VR shooter Contractors (2018), announced its upcoming competitive battle royale Contractors Showdown is headed to Quest on April 25th.

Pre-orders on Quest are also said to come with cosmetic rewards, including three different character skins, a weapon skin, and a weapon charm.

There’s no word on when other VR platforms are headed for release. The studio previously mentioned it was coming to “all major platforms” in 2024, however only lists Quest and SteamVR headsets on its website, with no further mention of PSVR 2. For now, PC VR players can wishlist on Steam.

In addition to a new trailer (seen below), the original article announcing Contractors Showdown follows below:

Original Article (June 16th, 2023): As first shared during UploadVR’s Summer Showcase, the game is set to launch on all major VR platforms in 2024, which is also slated to include crossplay.

Here’s how Caveman Studios describes the action:

Explore the uninhabited, rugged land that has remained ungoverned for decades. Survive, loot, upgrade, engage, and use your tactics against relentless enemies and dangers on the desolate island. Enter the combat solo or engage with allies to fight against all odds as a team.

The game’s map is said to span a 4km x 4km area, which you’ll tackle with your tactical PDA in hand for both a map and ability to call in support. Contractors Showdown also promises weapon customization, gear upgrades, damage indicators, and more. It’s not certain how many players will be able to jump in, however the studio calls it “a large number of teams of contractors.”

Long-requested features, such as progression, matchmaking, and daily quests, will also be included, the studio says. Unlike the original tactical shooter, Contractors Showdown won’t be supporting mods at release, however the studio says they will prioritize crossplay.

In the meantime, the studio says it will continuously update the original Contractors to version 1.0 as promised.
