Espire 2 Out Now on PICO 4 VR Headset Alongside  New Weekly Challenges and Leaderboards in Latest Update 

Virtual reality developer Digital Lode Immersive Media and publisher Tripwire Presents announced today that Espire 2, the gold standard in VR stealth and action, is now available for PICO 4 VR headset. To celebrate this milestone, players can find Espire 2 on the official PICO Store today for $23.99 USD with a 20% discount for a limited time. In addition, as a testament to its continued commitment to support Espire 2 and its growing community of Espire Agents, developer Digital Lode is also excited to share first details on the latest Espire 2 content update. Available now on Meta Quest 2 and Quest Pro platforms, today’s update introduces the fan favorite Weekly Challenges, Leaderboards, and more.

Espire 2 1.5 Update Key Features:

  • Weekly Challenges & Leaderboards: Back by popular demand, the fan favorite Weekly Challenges and Leaderboards from Espire 1: VR Operative return in Espire 2. Each week, players can expect new curated challenges from the developers, designed to test players skills and mettle as they compete with other players for the top score across the new leaderboard system.
  • Matchmaking Improvements: Matchmaking has been improved to ensure the best latency possible by connecting players with others closer to their location. For Meta Quest 2 and Quest Pro owners, Matchmaking searches will no longer attempt to match players with accounts the user has previously blocked.
  • Mixed Reality Mode: The 1.5 update also introduces significant under-the-hood improvements to Espire 2’s technical systems, including upgrading from Unreal Engine version 4.26 to 4.27 and switching the graphics API from OpenGL to Vulkan. The result: Espire 2 will run more smoothly with higher visual fidelity on all platforms. These changes will also pave the way for the recently announced Mixed Reality Mode, coming to Espire 2 later this year.

In the world of Espire 2, advanced military and virtual reality technologies meet, allowing Espire Agents to take on the role of a super spy, piloting deadly Espire espionage frames remotely from the safety of the Control Theatre. Set in the year 2036, Espire 2 marks the return of Espire Agent POE (the Primary Operator of Espire). After emerging from a seven-year coma, POE is thrust back into the world of dark espionage as the centerpiece of the Espire project. Now, with the help of two bleeding-edge droids called “Frames” and an all-new arsenal of weapons and tools, POE must embark on a mission to eliminate the global threat imposed by the deadly terrorist organization, OPHIS.

Out now for PICO 4, Meta Quest 2, and Quest Pro platforms – and coming soon for Quest 3, Espire 2 combines the tactical precision of modern stealth titles with the unprecedented immersion of VR, further expanding upon the genre-defining experience of its critically acclaimed predecessor. Espire 2 has an MSRP of $29.99 and an ESRB rating of “T for Teen.”
Digital Lode also invites players to join the growing Espire community and find like minded virtual reality fans on the official Espire 2 Discord server.
