A new update for Espire 1: VR Operative was just released today by Digital Lode and Tripwire Interactive. This update, available now through the Oculus Store, delivers players a new sawn-off shotgun for all their stealth needs. This "Spectre" update allows players to expand their non-stealth approach and allows them to go loud and proud into a fight instead of having to sneak their way through everything.

For those who do like the quiet life, there is also a new weapon for you. The Spectre SMG includes a suppressor and an extended 45-round magazine. In addition there are two new "ultra-difficult" challenges that have been added to the game. See? There's a little something for everyone.

To celebrate the release of this update, the game itself will be on sale for 25% off via the Oculus Store for today only. If you read this after March 19, 2021, you missed out.

Espire 1: VR Operative Spectre Update Highlights

New Campaign Weapon: Sawn-off Shotgun
• Playable for the first time in the campaign, the Sawn-off Shotgun offers Espire Agents the option to forgo stealth with this extra loud boom stick. This is the perfect weapon for “tanking” your way through the campaign, guns blazing. The Sawn-off Shotgun’s compact size allows for it to be holstered as either the primary or secondary weapon – and is reloaded via magazine clips. So, there is no need to worry about individual shells. Complete the Shotgun Virtual Challenges to unlock this new weapon for the campaign.

New Campaign Weapon: Spectre SMG
• Playable for the first time in the campaign, the Spectre SMG comes equipped with a suppressor and an extended 45-round magazine. With it’s unique firing mode, Espire Operatives can fire a round on a trigger squeeze with a second round firing upon release with reduced recoil. Complete the SMG Virtual Challenges to unlock this new weapon for the campaign.

New Virtual Challenge: Furcata
• Described by the Digital Lode developers as the “most difficult” Hostage rescue challenge ever made, Furcata features multiple starting points, skilled marksmen, and well-guarded hostages.

New Virtual: Mangua
• This brand-new Takedown challenge offers branching paths and rewards players who explore with special weapons to help complete their objectives. As always, keeping an eye out for guards patrolling above you and using zip lines to get the drop on enemies is critical for success.
