BigBox VR announces the upcoming release of the First season of Population: One with an open subscription for early access.
Population: One, launched in November, 2020, is a competitive team game in the genre of VR Battle Royale for the Oculus Quest and the PC VR.
Traditionally in other games of the genre battle Royale like Fortnite, seasons mark the introduction of the new content in-game, and as additional optional add-ons such as skins and additional items. Each season typically includes the new “battle pass”, usually in the form of a paid add-on, which is a system of progress throughout the season, allowing players to unlock skins and items as you level rise during the game. In every Fortnite competitive season was accompanied by a significant map changes and new gaming events.
