VR rhythm game Drums of War available now on Steam and Oculus

Just in time for the TVGB Vivestream’s triumphant return, VR rhythm combat game Drums of War is now available on Steam and the Oculus Store. This isn’t your run-of-the-mill rhythm game, though; you play as a towering orc, rampaging across the land with a weaponized set of drums. It sounds like just the right kind of madness for virtual reality. It comes with an interesting pedigree as well; the creator is one Alan Flores, who led the design of a number of Guitar Hero and Tony Hawk games. Just be warned that you won’t find quite so much variety in the music here; Drums of War is all about metal, for better or worse. The score was written by Game Castro, and there are additional songs from metal bands Warbringer and Exmortus. 

We’ll have a full review and/or Vivestream episode up soon, but if you want to try it yourself in the meantime, the game is marked down to $9.74 on both storefronts at the moment. You only have a week, though, before the price increases to $14.99. I’m not really into metal, but I’m interested to check it out myself. You can check out the trailer below:
