With the game boasting two beautifully crafted arenas, 'Deathmatch' and 'Team Deathmatch' game modes  five different weapons, five special abilities for turning the tide of battle, and a 'Bot Shootout Practice Mode' at the time of its Early Access launch, Skyfront VR has no shortage of ways to enact skybound supremacy, with new modes, maps and features planned for the coming months.
