Espire 2 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 game 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 the game later this year.
