Into the Radius just launched its Milestone 6 update today that introduces a large variety of additions and improvements to the Early Access Virtual Reality game currently available on Steam and the Oculus Store with CM Games is gearing up for an upcoming Q3 full release out of Early Access.

The most exciting new feature is the addition of a new ‘Story’ with difficulty levels, which is focused on providing players the ability to experience Into the Radius’ story and setting without having to worry as much about survival elements, such as losing items upon death. Along with the new difficulty, Milestone Update 6 brings a load of new guns, control improvements, the addition of save slots, and UI/UX enhancements.
