Caveman Studios is finally bringing their competitive VR shooter to the Oculus Quest 1 and 2 on December 3rd. Contractors join seminal FPS Onward and the recently released Population: One as a growing list of first-person-shooters to hit the Oculus Quest.
What makes that list so good for owners of either the Quest 1 or 2, is that each of those offers something completely different. Onward is a slow-paced true military sim that features great team-based action, while Population: One is a battle royale game that should scratch that PUBG or Fortnite itch in VR. If you’ve played the PC version of Contractors then you already know it’s a fast-paced FPS with loads of guns and quick respawns.
Contractors has been my personal go-to VR shooter when I’m looking for some quick action since it released on PC VR headsets back in 2018. Caveman Studios has delivered many updates since then but the update coming on December 3rd may be the one I’m most excited for. Contractors VR on the Quest isn’t just a port, but it will bring with it new modes as well. Caveman Studio says the Quest version will also feature casual and competitive game modes, offline play, new character models, and what has me most excited, co-op missions. Check out a teaser for the co-op mode above.
Contractors admittedly doesn’t have the player base of Onward or Pavlov, but a full release on the Quest has the potential to change that in a big way. Especially considering the game will feature both cross-play with Steam and Oculus PC players and cross-buy with owners of the Oculus Rift version of the game. This means, of course, if you already purchased the game from the Oculus store, you’ll get the Quest Version for free, and you’ll be able to play the game with PC players no matter the store they bought it from or the headset they play it on.
For those who don’t already own it for the Oculus Rift, Contractors VR will cost you $20 dollars when it releases on December 3rd.
