So now that you’ve loaded up a few mods, how do you actually use them?

In any game map, check the room you spawn in. On a desk nearby will be a spawn book. If you walk up to it, you will see all of the mods you’ve installed. If you select one in the spawn book, it will tell you some details about the mod and allow you to spawn them in the game.

Once a new weapon or item is spawned, place it in your inventory and use it later in battle.

What is Blade and Sorcery?

Blade and Sorcery is a hand-to-hand combat game. It operates like an open sandbox, giving you a unique experience each time you play.

The game focuses on simulation to provide users a non-gamey experience, but rather a lifelike combat arena. The game is moddable, allowing you complete freedom to play around with different weapons and use a wide range of combat skills like:

  • stabbing
  • smashing
  • choking
  • kicking
  • zip lining
  • climbing
  • gripping
  • punching
  • lifting objects with telekinesis

There’s no stopping your rule in the combat arena with the customization ability the game provides.

Combat Sandbox

Sandbox refers to gameplay that offers much experimentation and modding to complete tasks and goals, if any. Sandbox games barely have rules or goals and focus on free-form gameplay.

Users can change the game environment by adding their favorite elements and playing around with them to get the best gaming experience possible.

Both Blade and Sorcery’s Meta Quest and PC VR versions enables gamers to unleash their fullest combat skills in battles with the Sandbox mode. The game doesn’t have a story at the moment, but a story mode is likely on the cards soon. The development teams want to perfect the combat and lifelike physics before creating specific levels and goals to complete.

In the new Dungeons mode, “you get to make your way through a semi-procedurally generated dungeon with randomized rooms and droves of enemies.” This wave combat feature is highly addictive.

Furthermore, fans are waiting for the most-anticipated Progression mode where users can build the character with time and kind of play in a story environment instead of just the experiment sandbox mode.

Physic-based Combat

The blade and Sorcery PCVR version has the best physics-based engine in any combat VR game. And since most of the features in the Nomad are the same as the PCVR version, the Quest 2 users can get their hands on the realistic physics-driven simulation to experience combat like never before.

The freedom the game offers in parrying an enemy with multiple simultaneous actions and the realistic physics makes it one of the best hand-to-hand combat games.

Weight and Presence Simulation

Combat in Blade and Sorcery feels the most real with the use of representational weapons and objects mimicking the feel of handling them in real-life. Every character, object, or item in the game is so realistic that you will get a taste of reality while taking on your enemies.

Full-Body Tracking

The full-body tracking feature replicates your body movements in the game, making the VR experience even more immersive. Your real-life actions imitate 1-to-1 in the game, and Blade and Sorcery’s standalone version will completely immerse you into it.
