STOCKHOLM - August 16, 2022 - VR gamers, prepare for victory: the mech-powered sport of the future has officially set its sights on a release date. Resolution Games confirmed today that Ultimechs will launch September 15 on major VR platforms as a free download with no limits on play for Meta Quest 2, Steam VR, and Pico devices. Eager players looking forward to the game’s upcoming release can currently wishlist Ultimechs on Steam and in the Meta Quest Store
“When we designed Ultimechs, we tried to keep in mind what would go into creating a new sport that people would love playing and watching years from now,” said Tommy Palm, founder and CEO of Resolution Games. “Ultimechs combines the excitement, drama and atmosphere of traditional sports and makes the action quick and simple to understand, with plenty of room for big power-plays and clever strategies. Players who want to take things to the next level can sign up for the UltiPass, a seasonal membership that unlocks a wealth of ways to upgrade the look of their mechs.”   
In addition to today’s release date reveal, Resolution Games has published a video for the Ultimechs community that further details gameplay in a behind-the-scenes interview. 
The Ultimechs UltiPass
The Ultimechs UltiPass is a seasonal battle pass system that will provide players with new paint jobs and other cosmetic enhancements to make the mechs uniquely personalized. Details of the Season One UltiPass, including a preview of its content and pricing, will be made available ahead of the game’s launch this September.
