ORIGINAL NEWS (16/08/2018):
This weekend the Echo Combat open beta (from today at 19:30 until Sunday at 19:00), the new multiplayer mode of Echo VR that we can access for free through the Oculus store. This new opportunity to test the combat mode will allow us to use the new equipment options they have introduced: the bow mine, the stun grenade, and the energy barrier.
In turn, they introduce settings for weapons to sheathe when they overheat, add combat data to stats, reduce defense prep time to 45 seconds, add a new defensive respawn to the third checkpoint on the Fission map, and remove the requirement to have CPU AVX instructions turned on, which prevented some users from launching the game.

The beta also fixes various bugs and tweaks maps for a more balanced experience. We have the full list of changes on this page.
