Because we can’t get enough of VR games in space, Ubisoft revealed its new competitive shooter today, Space Junkies — a 1v1 and 2v2 VR shooter set in space.

Players take on the role of a Spacer and duke it out in zero gravity arenas using their hands and bodies to manipulate the environment. The game offers an arsenal of “outlandish,” customizable weapons, such as Sunblasters and Bioguns, and according to the game’s website, environments are destructible and “morph based on your input.”

Space Junkies is powered by Brigitte, a new virtual reality engine built by developer Ubisoft Montpellier. According to a press release, it was designed “to evolve and adapt to the way worlds can now be created for VR.”

This year’s E3 has brought us a slew of VR announcements, including VR support for Doom and Fallout 4 and a new game by developer Polyarc that lets you be best mates with a mouse.
