Downpour Interactive took the time to explain that everything you would expect of the PC version is in the Oculus Quest version. That includes what they call an “immersive battlefield experience with great combat mechanics and a sharp eye for realism”, as well as some incredibly impressive visuals, even for the Oculus Quest. The Oculus Quest version includes all multi-player and single-player game modes such as Assault, Uplink, Escort, co-op Hunts, and even the social modes as well. Even the scopes on guns work and behave realistically, as they do in the PC version, and all gun handling and shooting mechanics feel visceral and authentic.

You can wishlist Onward for the Oculus Quest right now by following this link. Unfortunately, players who have purchased Onward on the PC-based Oculus Store will not have cross-buy access to it on the Oculus Quest, since it was a separately developed version of the game. Onward has been in development for several years now, even going back to the Early Access program on Steam in 2017. Check out the trailer below to see the Oculus Quest version of the game in action.
