Metro VR Studios to Showcase Orion13 and Host Battle Area Competition

At booth #12004, attendees can demo the indie sci-fi VR adventure and test their combat skills in a survival arena challenge

BOSTON - BostonChron -- Metro VR Studios (MVRS), a Boston-based start-up and independent virtual reality (VR) video game development company, announces it will be exhibiting at PAX East 2020, from February 27 - March 1, at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center in Boston, Massachusetts.  At booth #12004, the indie studio will showcase its inaugural title, Orion13—a first-person VR sword-fighting action/adventure game released on Steam earlier this month.

PAX East attendees will have the opportunity to don an Oculus headset and wield a virtual sword as Orion13, a newly sentient robot warrior who must battle her way through a futuristic dystopia. Booth visitors can play through one of multiple gameplay levels, where they will experience intense hack-and-slash combat, decode interactive puzzles, and meet colorful friends and foes that drive Orion13's movie-like story arc.
