A fun sandbox VR game where you can move freely around medieval times climbing walls and exploring fantastic architecture-and of course, slaying the enemy! Thi VR game was launched in 2019 by the game developer WarpFrog, and is available on most VR platforms online. We will go through all of the splendor that goes on in Blade & Sorcery and, what optimal hardware you need to get the best experience from the game.
Blade & Sorcery Gameplay
You are a magical sorcerer set out to save your city from being overtaken by the enemy. With the help of magic, blades, and speers, you are prepared to defeat your enemies in bloody battles that take place in a large castle, arenas, and dwelling canyons.
the game lets you move around freely to explore all of the buildings and artifacts you find to help you along the way.
Blade & Sorcery is not a game you spend a couple of hours on. It is an exciting virtual world filled with combat and excitement you will probably want to stay in for hours on end. the gameplay is smooth and intuitive, so you don't really need a lot of practice to get on with brutal combat with the enemy in this game.
There really is no fantastic storyline or intricate puzzles to complete. Just roam around and see what you find. Backgrounds and graphic elements are well made in the game, but the characters you are battling are a bit sluggish and don't really seem that realistic. But exploring this game in itself is a great experience.
Compatible Devices for Blade & Sorcery
Large sandboxes like this do require a bit of RAM, so unfortunately it's not available on standalone VR headsets like the Oculus Quest. PC is the only option here, but other than RAM, the specs you need aren't frightening. On Steam and Oculus, it says you need at least an NVIDIA GTX 1070, but players have reported it works fine on GTX 1010 and up.
The bare minimum processor you need is an Intel i5 but, it is recommended i7 or equivalent from AMD. Any headset works fine with this game with at least a refresh rate of 80Hz and a 110-degree viewing angle. The gameplay is very smooth and little fast-paced movement, so this is a great game for VR beginners.
Final thoughts on Blade & Sorcery
Overall, the game has gotten very good ratings from players and is currently a very popular title on Oculus. So if you're in the market for a Rift S, this is a great introductory game to start out with. Moving around in spacious sandboxes taking you back in time is a great experience in VR, and Blade & Sorcery does this masterfully. Apart from a few unrealistic characters and battle interactions, the views and movement in the game are very well made. But we would like to see a sequel where the action gives you a bit more adrenaline and excitement.
