Welcome to Seeking Dawn, a science fiction VR experience that takes you far beyond the solar system. Step into the shoes of a soldier discovering a hostile planet, where predators roam freely and enemies are trigger-happy. As you follow the trail of an allied recon squad, your task is to find out what happened to them and what they came here for.
Combining sharp gunplay with dedicated survival elements, Seeking Dawn’s campaign will throw you into unforgettable environments and pit you against unforgiving adversaries. Do you have what it takes to survive?
– Tailor your personal combat style from an array of diverse equipment
– Scour wild, untamed lands for clues to your mission
– Harvest exotic resources and craft an arsenal of weapons to defend your base
– Play the campaign with up to 3 other friends in co-op
In the 23rd century, mankind has spread to the corners of the galaxy. Having been pushed too far, one human faction has begun its fight for independence, sparking a civil war between the newly formed FCR and the domineering ACC. However, not all battles are fought on the front lines: as FCR operative James Weston, you’ve been deployed far from civilized space, sent to investigate the disappearance of an allied team on an unforgiving alien world.
Dropped into the middle of the wilderness, relying on your wits may not be enough: you’re going to want an arsenal, and the planet has everything you need to build one. An abundance of exotic ores and plants are ready to be turned into cutting edge workstations, mid-battle snacks, sturdy base defenses, and (of course) a dazzling array of high-tech weaponry. Between the savage creatures and merciless soldiers that roam the land, you’ll need every bullet you can craft in order to come out on top.
With these tools at your disposal, you’ll have to pick up the trail of your compatriots, forging you way through a lush forest, descending into the bowels of the earth, tramping your way through a frigid land of ice, and beyond. Just be mindful of your body’s needs – out here, thirst and starvation are as dangerous as claws and guns, and death isn’t picky about how it gets you.
For those undeterred, the world’s secrets await discovery. Weston has a mission to accomplish, and he could use someone to guide him. Do you have what it takes to see it through?
(also playable on Oculus Rift)

It’s difficult to describe, in 900 characters, how amazing this game is; so, I’ll try my best. The story, graphics, and gameplay are absolutely astonishing. First of all, the story Seeking Dawn takes you on, is well thought out. (a continuation on this story would be awesome) Second, the graphics quality is some of the best I’ve ever seen on any VR game, so far. As far as gameplay, that’s the best part! Throughout my experience, I have enjoyed going back and forth, gathering resources, and returning to my base to craft ammo, food, and tools. The ambient creatures roaming around add a deep sense of immersion. The enemies, however, seem a bit generic and could use some improvement. It would be nice to see some “dynamic” AIs. In all, this is by far my absolute favorite game, for VR.

Best VR game I have played so far. This game is like halo and the text in the GUI and onscreen text are large and easily readable. The aiming is also spot on which is neccessary in shooter game when things start getting faster paced. I noticed as a indie dev my self a cave asset pack that was very nicly blended in with the enviroment. I almost did’nt recognize it. 🙂

loved it, graphically it is brilliant, think of the movie Avatar and your close.
mechanics worked well
motion is epic and supprisingly with all you can do including sprinting i had zero motion sickness
10/10 from me

Absolutely one of the best games in VR!
Great co-op, crafting, base building, and a decently long campaign!
I highly recommend this gorgeous game!!
Also, I see many complaining about teleporting not knowing that the game is also full locomotion. It’s a shame a lot of people gave it bad ratings for something that it doesn’t deserve.

I’m relatively new to VR and this is one of the first titles I’m playing on my own rig. So far I’m absolutely loving it!
The game makes good use of the vive controllers. There is a particularly enjoyable quick select menu for switching between equipment and items. Simply hit the menu button, a radial wheel of your items pops up, reach for the one that you want and it will be equipped in whichever hand you reached out with.
There is a variety of movement and view methods. currently I’m using the smooth look and move options, which I believe should be the most likely to induce motion sickness, but I’ve had no issues.
I’m not far in, but the story is compelling enough to make me want to continue and the gameplay has been a blast!

only played for an hour or so but this game is amazing-everything one would hope for in a vr game – immersive, atmospheric. great graphics and an intruiging story with good action. so far well worth the asking price.
thanks for making a great game and i hope there are more!

Simply stunning and brilliant attention to detail.
Absorbing from the first moment you enter the game. I love the HUD display and the movement system (you chose preferred options from teleport, blink, etc). The graphics and stability is second to none. An experience you totally lose yourself in! Fantastic!

Bon, je change mon commentaire ci dessous.Après avoir vu qu’il fallait mettre la nourriture au niveau du front (bizarre!) J’ai super bien avancé dans le jeu.Par contre j’ai un bug qui me donne des munitions infini ! Ca à l’ai pratique mais de temps en temps quang je demande des munitions il pleut des recharges à n’en plus finir.
J’ajoute qu’il aurait été intéressant d’avoir une scéance d’entrainement avant le jeu pour effectivement faciliter l’apprentissage. Autre chose génante quand on meurt on revient à la base au lieu de revenir là ou l’on meurt!
Il est bien après avoir compris comment jouer … j’ai vu un peu tard que l’on pouvais avoir les sous titre en français.J’ai aussi vu un peu tard les sous titres sur la main gauche! Bon j’ai pas compris pourquoi la gauge de gauche se vide rapidement (elle semble liée à la nouriture….que j’arrive bien à manger pourtant

Brilliant job Multiverse, finally VR is coming of age. As reviewed elsewhere, think Avatar without the blue monkeys. Graphics are beautiful, if a little dark at times. I have had motion sickness with a number of other titles but this is solid as a rock. The interface is well thought out and presented and the world well designed. The weapons, enemies and combat are well done and the inclusion of gathering and crafting adds yet more gold stars.
This has set the bar for what a VR shooter/rpg needs to be, more please.

Really fun game and the customer service if you have any sort of issue is awesome. I had a glitch that happened a few hours in and I just facebook messaged them and they responded quickly and fixed it.
The only problem with the game that I found is that it crashes for some reason if I don’t save often, so if you have that issue just make sure you save frequently and it will be just fine.
Looking fwd to more games from these guys and gals.

I recommended play this game, it is very inmersive and large (to VR standars).
– Good First Person Shooter
– The Environment looks amazing
– 8-10 hours of game
– Boss fights.
– The survival part is annoying (the caracter only tell you that he is hungry or thirsty… this is all…)
– The harvester – construct part is very limited.
– The IA it is not the best.
– It is not compatible with SteamVR Beta..
Note: Do not use SteamVR Beta to play the game, which causes a bug in the beginning. Go to the Steam VR properties and turn off the Beta option, and disable the desktop game theather too, since that just closes the game when you try to start it. Also, I ran into an issue where I couldn’t open my backpack during the tutorial. I had to restart the game, then it was fine.

Has no one play tested being a left hander? When swapping the movement controls to the right hand sprinting is no longer an option for the character and movement when attempting to gun in the same hand isn’t the most comfortable. All inventory items get split from the quick menu. Any other problems… Eh… little bugs. Pretty good rpg shooter and a game that can be brought to light as one that entertains. A proper buy actualy if the subscription isnt your thing. Also made well to play with others: Shareable inventories, toggles for friendly fire, a vast inventory system and masses of enemies for lots of fun panic. A followable storyline for the nerdy bookworm, too. There is a bug with the movement (hand) swapping. In a game with designated hands it takes a hit. Right handers get all the good stuff.
Keep up the good work and keep making content for us.

This is a GREAT game, awesome graphics, well detailed storyline… but it has SO many loading screens! and they are SO lenghty!…
It also needs a better guidance, like i feel things are not clearly explained.
This is an awesome game, it has little detais to fix!

Awesome environment, engaging story and cool gameplay. I love it so far. It’s most definitely worth playing if you like the adventure shooters. Some errors I ran across are sound being out of sync. Some of the non hostile lizards I shot curl up like they die, but continue moving. The forging in the base station is buggy. Don’t make the same mistake I did by trying to have a workshop in the big area because it seems the game will only let you use only one of the forges in the room. The others don’t open up. Good stuff so far just work through the bugs and let the devolopers know what to work on. Thanks for the awesome subscription game. Also an option to be able to teleport by holding down the touch pad and using the finger sensor to walk would be nice. I can’t walk all the time cause i’ll get motion sickness. but just to use it to strafe and fight enemies would be good.

It felt like playing an Halo Campaing , very well dont , i like the crafting and harvesting. There are a bunch of bugs where you fall off the map and don’t die and only way to get back is to restart. It has a save feature but no in game load featuer you have to exit to title screen and then load the last game which was a bit annoying but overall it was lots of fun , good story and graphics , overall a great shooter with a hint of RPG elements. 4 out of 5 stars cuz of the bugs and the missing load save game feature in game.

Graphics are Good
Controls are Okay
Gameplay is bad, you need to get items to make ammo so you can shoot bad guys, once you run out you need to scavage for items to make ammo, ammo can only be made in a underground level and you cannot get inside once you go to other levels.
Story seems okay. Would be a great game if you had good amount of ammo to kill bad guys and see the rest of the story.

Seems half-backed… as an example, during the introduction, the NPC that talks to you doesnt keep eye contact (doesn’t look where you are) and the heights difference is not taken into account either, Impossible to “dodge” mob attacks, which makes it frustrating… also a little bit of nausea during movement
Oct 01, 2018
I see the potential for this game but every time ive played so far ive quit i cant stand the movement scheme you need to increase the distance of the teleport if you want to know the perfect movement controls look at dead effect 2 or sairento their vr movement is flawless other than that the games been good i just cant keep teleporting 5 feet at a time and the blink takes you out of the game and the walk if you could double click or auto run it wouldnt be bad but the way its set up now is flawed. Im not bashing this game it looks good and seems potential awesome but if youre not comfortable moving around nothing matters

Do not waste your time or money on this poorly optimized garbage. there is potential here for a great game but its unplayable due to laughable performance. even on an overclocked gtx1070ti and ryzen 5 1600 the game can’t break 50fps. A quick google search shows the same issues for a LOT of people.
***UPDATE*** Gave this another try after upgrading to a Ryzen 3rd Gen CPU and its massively improved. Clearly the game has also had some optimizations so its hard to say which had the bigger impact but i would still be very skeptical running this game on older CPUs
Sep 26, 2019
Need fix to bugs… crashed 3 times in a day, I fall to a place without exit 2 times too, and got stuck in a rock 3 times.
The mission objectives needs to improve, you don’t know very well were to go and you play one hour to get a portal gun that you can craft in the beginning.
The part which you have to grab bones to climb is bad… the bones are too distant.
Could be good, need a little work but have potencial. Have good voice acting, good graphics and an interesting craft system.
Hope the developers won’t abandon the game.
Jun 08, 2019
It made a very good first impression. But even on easy totally unbalanced. You just won’t deal any damage and enemys rush you to death. Fights take forever and you’ll take breaks for eating all the time. Usually it is best to just run through them and hope the best. Enemies respawn, resources not. It just lost its fun at some point. Seems hardly tested before releasing it here to me…
Performance got worse with latest patch?

Probablement un bon jeu si on comprend comment jouer.
C’est plutôt beau, l’exploration dans des décors exotiques et les combats contre d’horribles extraterrestres sont assez agréables. Mais je meurs de faim et de soif, sans arriver à trouver comment manger ou boire, et je n’ai toujours pas compris ce que je fais là ni ce que je suis censé faire. Apparemment il y aurait aussi du craft (pour ceux qui ont le mode d’emploi).
Ca manque clairement d’un tuto, et je n’ai rien trouvé sur le net, le jeu a l’air mort. Si quelqu’un a une adresse…

This game is riddled with game-breaking bugs (eg. 1 falling through the floor and not being able to get back into the level – requiring a complete restart!) (e.g. 2 the EM tower that you are supposed to destroy to progress is actually indestructible).
I’ve struggled and struggled with this. THere is a good game in here somewhere. It’s just too much effort to get there.

Hallo, die Grafik ist bei mir echt mies. Ich habe einen Hochleitungsrechner von Alienware und bei anderen Spielen eine sehr gute Grafik. Ich habe im Spiel auch alles auf hoch usw. eingestellt. Mein Rechner arbeiten wie verrückt bei diesem Spiel. Beim Teleportieren dauert es auch oft eine kleine Ewigkeit, das ich an dem Ort bin auf den ich möchte. Woran kann das liegen? Wird das Spiel vielleicht gestreamt und meine Internetverbindung ist schlecht? Würde gerne mehr Sterne geben. Eine Deutsche Sprache wäre auch super.
Wäre für Unterstützung dankbar.

This game seem to have great potential, but havn’t reach it yet.
Started a game with a friend, at default settings and difficulty. Played for two hours, but game didn’t save tho I did Hit ”save game”.
Ressources are scarces, we kept missing ammo and craft bench is way too far away.
Movement system is great (We used walking instead of teleport), inventory and hub is convenient.
But the worst part is the lack of checkpoints in some areas…In one, I died 5 times, and each times I had to walk from the very begining, aproximatly 10min away (running speed).
(Most of times I died because only available server was Asia tho I’m in Canada)

The teleportation ist a joke – sometimes it works, but very often nothing happens or with a 3 seconds delay. Graphics look very nice – too bad it’s unplayable for me with my Vive…
Mar 17, 2019
All walking options are bugged. Teleport jumps randomly when it wants to and doesn’t move when you tell it to, walking reserts your position whenever you let go (ultimately you can’t even move) the others are a product of the last two issues. launched game 3 times for it to actually start, twice just trying to get the Vive to receive the signal. Starts by launching steam overlay for no reason, and sending you to the store page, while in game. Game set to lowest settings, is unoptimised and drops frames, with a GTX Titan… Looks great though, too bad I still can’t move or I’d see past the hallway.
May 05, 2019
Well made and detailed game but when you are hit by a monster there is a red flash infront of your face and you get hit so fast that you cant see anything and it makes the game feel unplayable.
Dec 28, 2019
Too much reflective surfaces that make it feel too bright which throws off your vision and makes it hard to see at times.
No serious animations on how the creatures react when you shoot them.
Not compelling both visually and gameplay wise. I was very excited to jump in but came out dissapointed as this game lacks in so many aspects it’s not even funny.
Trailer looks good but doesn’t compare to the shit show of the game itself.
Do not recommend.
Oct 09, 2019
Would be a good game if it wasn’t buggy as hell, I can look past a few minor bugs but some are gamebreaking. Performance is awful too.
