Update v1.6 now known as ‘Reloaded’
Releasing this month.
We are in the final development stages of the Reloaded Update, and are pleased to announce that the Reloaded update will release this month!
Virtual gunstock Mode
We have recently been working on getting a new feature into Onward that’ll allow users with Inside-Out-Tracked VR setups to accurately aim and enjoy the game, called “Virtual Gunstock Mode”. There can be tracking deadzones with Inside-Out-Tracked VR headsets, and without this option players can sometimes lose track of their dominant hand when aiming. We’ve been working hard to get a new type of Virtual Gunstock feature into Onward to solve this problem. We’ll reveal more information as we get closer to release.
Improved WMR support
For WMR devices we’ve made controller keybinds more intuitive.
Index controller support
The Index controllers will also be officially supported in Onward upon release. Picking up objects and interacting with weapons and equipment will still be the same as before, but you will now be able to move every finger individually when your hands aren’t holding things.
SteamVR input rebinding support
For people who might want to customize their input, you will soon be able to rebind all of Onward's input commands in SteamVR in v1.6. This also allows us to support many new devices and control schemes, such as with Windows Mixed Reality.
With the use of Oculus, people are able to travel via virtual reality without actually having to pack, fly, and spend the money on a real trip.
