VR Shooter X8 Comes To Pax West

PAX West is coming and X8 has big plans.

Thirdverse, Inc., the leading development studio behind the popular VR multiplayer hero shooter game X8, today announced its presence at PAX West, one of the most prestigious gaming events in the industry. Thirdverse will be showcasing its popular free-to-play VR multiplayer hero shooter game ‘X8’ at the Seattle Convention Center from September 1-4 in booth 3105. Visitors attending PAX West will have the unique opportunity to experience ‘X8’ firsthand and engage in action-packed 5v5 rounds from the showfloor. Additionally, PAX West goers who visit Thirdverse’s X8 booth will also have the chance to collect some exclusive X8 swag.

Since its Early Access release on Meta Quest and Steam in late May, ‘X8’ has been generating significant buzz in the gaming community – over 70,000 players have already installed the game to play 250,000 matches and 2 million rounds of intense 5v5 gameplay to date. X8 is a VR multiplayer hero shooter game that offers gamers customizable loadouts of weapons, armor, items, and abilities, allowing players to equip their heroes before the battle begins. Additionally, each hero holds three special abilities and their hero-specific items offer situational advantages. Teams use an array of strategies to penetrate enemy defenses to deploy ‘The Syphon’ at specific sites on the map during an attack or deactivate it within 30 seconds using ‘The Defuser’ during defense. The team that eliminates all attackers or disrupts the deployment process to score the most points over the course of the 14-round game is declared the winner.

As a trailblazer in VR gaming, Thirdverse remains committed to pushing the boundaries of what is possible in the virtual realm. With ‘X8,’ the company is poised to redefine the 5v5 multiplayer hero shooter experience in VR and captivate players worldwide. Thirdverse’s dedication to innovation, combined with its passion for creating memorable battle gaming experiences, has solidified its position as a leading force in the VR gaming industry.

Gamers and industry professionals attending PAX West are encouraged to visit Thirdverse’s booth to discover ‘X8’ and experience the VR action firsthand.
