OrbusVR: Reborn’s First Mini Story Pack DLC to Launch April 28
Overland Park, Kan. – April 16, 2020 – OrbusVR announced today that its first Mini Story Pack, Secrets of Mugwood, will officially launch Tuesday, April 28, 2020. The Mini Story Pack will be the title’s first foray into in-game DLC, and will feature all-new zones, NPCs, and questlines.
Journey into the hidden microsystems of Patreayl where you’ll battle belligerent bugs (and a few monstrous plants) for the fate of a community of sentient lizards. Meet the residents of a quaint mushroom village and try your hand catching moonflies. Defend a patrol outpost overrun by spiders. And finally find your way through a maze of insect-infested tunnels deep underground in search of a sacred object…
Mini Story Pack #1: Secrets of Mugwood will introduce 10-15 hours of new gameplay. The adventure will play out over 4 new mini zones (as well as a “miniaturized” version of Pierre Cenn’s shop), exploration of which will be further enhanced by the addition of a new climbing mechanic. Pack players will earn 3 new armor sets and 2 new weapons (per class), as well as extras such as mounts, pets, Player House furniture, and more. In addition to climbing, the Mini Story Pack will also introduce a new Treasure Hunt mechanic in which players use fragments of a map to find hidden treasure chests in the new mini zones.
“We are very excited about the possibilities Story Packs will open up for us,” said Robert Dutton, Producer. “With a small team, the Packs are a great way for us to balance available resources to meet the needs of the current game while building toward the future. They give us the best of both worlds. They will allow us to add more content for players and explore new mechanics while providing additional funding to work on performance improvement, bug fixes, and other issues in the current game.”
The dev team plans on transitioning new mechanics featured in the Packs such as climbing and the Treasure Hunt into the base game. The first Mini Story Pack will allow solo and group players a chance to explore a new storyline, world and monster mechanics, but will not give them an advantage over those players that choose not to purchase the pack.
Mini Story Pack #1: Secrets of Mugwood will be available for $9.99 through the game’s cash shop.
