Stockholm, Sweden - June 7, 2018

Fast Travel Games adds competitive experience in acclaimed VR action/adventure, free for all players owning the game

Fast Travel Games has today released a content update for their acclaimed debut title, VR exclusive action/adventure Apex Construct. It is called Cygnia Cup Challenge and it is free for all players owning the main game on either Steam or Oculus, with the PlayStation VR version of Apex Construct getting the free content update later this summer. In Cygnia Cup Challenge, the player will be transported to a shifted pre-apocalypse arena and take part in a global fight to be the one who rules the leaderboards:

 

  • Fight in 6 locations in the arena, each with escalating difficulty levels.
  • Take out shooting targets and enemies quickly to keep the combo meter up!
  • Avoid getting shot by Mothr’s attacking bots. If you die, the challenge is over.
  • Use your wits (and your different arrow types…) to reach the highest score.
  • Earn your place on the global leaderboards.
  • Participating in the Score Challenge also earns you RP which you can spend on upgrades or consumables in the campaign.

Cygnia Cup Challenge is accessible from the game’s main menu, so both new and current Apex Construct players can jump into the experience immediately after booting up the game. Creative Director Erik Odeldahl explains the reasons behind making Cygnia Cup Challenge: “We are immensely proud of the bow mechanics in Apex Construct and while the main adventure in the game is a long one, players have been asking for additional ways to make use of their acquired combat skills. We decided to create and deliver a new, competitive feature where they can bring these skills to challenge other players across the world.

PR & Marketing Manager Andreas Juliusson adds: “With the global leaderboards, which are visible in-game, we will find out who the best archers in the world are. We also have plans to initiate Cygnia Cup contests at a later stage, with some exciting prizes, so players should start practicing and try to climb the leaderboards today!

About Apex Construct
Apex Construct is a single player action/adventure game built exclusively for VR, where players need to explore a shattered world to uncover its secrets while defending themselves from the synthetic creatures, utilizing an upgradable bow, arrow & shield setup. Progressing through the adventure, players will gradually reveal what actually happened to the world they once knew – and what their role is in the drawn out conflict between two powerful AIs. Delivering full immersion through a highly interactive environment, players get to explore the surroundings at their own pace and with different movement options like Full Locomotion or Teleportation. New content update, Cygnia Cup Challenge, adds a competitive mode where the players hone their bow & arrow skills to climb the leaderboards.
