Final Fury Beta Brings the Fight to Meta Quest 2

Kluge Interactive has announced a closed beta playtesting for their newest title, Final Fury. Currently in development for all major platforms, Final Fury is a new VR fighting game. It is aiming to bring the dynamic gameplay mechanics of classic arcade fighting games to the immersive world of VR.

Final Fury is set in a distant future. The galaxy’s most formidable combatants vie for supremacy in an epic fighting tournament. Combatants boast their own unique fighting style, move set, and personality, adding depth and variety to the combat. The game is designed to be approachable for all skill levels. Kluge Interactive aim to appeal to both hardcore fighting game fans and VR enthusiasts alike.

“To bring classic Street Fighter-like experiences to the world of VR, we had to rethink classic gameplay mechanics, transporting them out of the 2D flat screen and into the world of VR. Come experience combat like never before. Chain together precision combos using our unique gesture attack system. Hone quick reflexes to defend against incoming strikes and strategize counterattacks to emerge victorious,” said Abraham Aguero, Creative Director, Kluge Interactive. “Easy to pick up, yet with technical depth reminiscent of classic arcade fighters, Final Fury offers a unique challenge for players of all skill levels.”

The upcoming Final Fury closed beta will feature a selection of the game’s diverse roster of characters. Tempest, the well-rounded fighter with ice-based powers; Glitch, the mine-laying robot that dominates control of the arena; Niko, the speedy fighter with electrifying attacks; and Gaia, the earthy brawler with nature-based powers.

Created by the studio behind the top-selling VR rhythm game Synth Riders, Kluge Interactive will limit the Final Fury closed beta to Meta Quest 2 only. However, the final game will launch on a variety of VR formats. It will provide players with a preview of Final Fury’s single-player and multiplayer modes. In single-player, closed beta participants will be able to hone their skills against CPU opponents. Multiplayer opens up opportunities for head-to-head battles against friends or random players.

Closed Beta playtesting will commence on 21st July 2023. You can register to participate in the closed beta here.

“Action-fighting game fans and VR enthusiasts can now go hands-on with our Closed Beta playtest where players can experience both single and multiplayer battles and provide invaluable feedback. Your input will aid us in putting the final touches on Final Fury.” said Aguero. 

Invites for the Closed Beta playtesting will be distributed in waves throughout the Closed Beta. Are you planning on getting involved? Let us know in the comments below!
