Cyborn’s Hubris is already well known as one of the best-looking games in VR. But with the incoming launch of Meta Quest 3, the studio is using the improved hardware to upgrade the experience. Just like Red Matter 2, Hubris is getting a range of visual Quest 3 enhancements to make its virtual world come alive.
As detailed in a recent post on X (formerly Twitter), Cyborn details a range of refinements. For example, the screen resolution is being upgraded from 980 x 1152 to 2064 x 2208 per eye. Alongside the LOD (Distant Level of Detail) improvements this should make the gorgeous vistas crystal clear. When looking at the finer details, the texture quality is getting an upgrade as well as the foliage density increasing.
All in all, a pretty game should look even prettier on Meta Quest 3.
Hubris on Quest 3
Hubris joins a growing collection of Quest 2 games benefiting from Quest 3’s extra processing power. These include the likes of Espire 2, Golf+, Guardians Frontline, The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners, Zenith: The Last City, Virtual Desktop and many more. Some are merely using Quest 3’s Snapdragon XR2+ chipset to improve their visuals whilst others are going further. Espire 2, Wallace & Gromit: The Grand Getaway, Yuki and others are adding mixed reality components too.
The sci-fi game is a single-player adventure where you play a recruit tasked with locating a high-profile agent. Sent to a mysterious alien world, Hubris is a physical gameplay experience involving running, jumping, climbing and swimming. There’s also plenty of action, with combat sequences dealing with deadly enemies interspersed with chances to craft and upgrade weaponry.
Meta Quest 3 launches on 10th October 2023 with prices starting from $499.99. Pre-orders are available now with a free copy of Asgard’s Wrath 2.
