HTC Vive Gets a New VR Title in The Way of Kings, Escape the Shattered Plains

Today the HTC Vive just got a new title for their library of games with The Way Of Kings, Escape The Shattered Plains which puts you in the role of a young warrior trying to make his way out of a hostile environment where basically everything is either trying to kill you or is too weak to help you. Seriously, the game is kind of weird like that, but it also looks like a pretty good first-person adventure title from Arcturus and DMG Entertainment. We have the game’s description below along with the official trailer, in case you feel like trying it out for yourself.
