Requisition VR is on track for release in September
Requisition VR is an upcoming and one-of-a-kind zombie game created by the developer Arcadia. The game is currently on its fifth wave of beta testing. They are positive everything is going as planned for its scheduled release this September.
The developers are presently concentrating on gaining useful input from the beta testing to ensure that the game is truly ready and not pushed for a release in September. The Home Alone-inspired game concept receives extra attention from the creators.
Instead of coop games where players can team up, the Home Alone aspect of the game allows for engaging PvP where players go against one another. The game's weapon-building feature, which allows players to make their own weapons out of various household items, was another domain on which the creators concentrated their efforts. The developers stated a desire to continue working on the Horde mode and the Story mode.
