While Esper 2 has already made the move from the Gear VR to the Oculus Rift, the original is still yet to do the same, until now.
Developer Coatsink has confirmed that the original Esper is launching on the Oculus Rift on September 1st 2016. The port will feature improved graphics and enhanced positional tracking over its Gear VR counterpart thanks to the improved hardware of the Rift.
Reprising your role from the original game, you will become an agent of the enigmatic ESPR organisation. ESPR was set up to deal with the outbreak of telekinetic abilities among ‘special’ citizens and consequences of the event. You’ll venture to exotic locations, including the outer reaches of your mind, as you attempt to thwart a villain’s quest to obtain a mysterious artefact.
Both the original Esper and Esper 2 will be made available as part of a bundle in a few weeks named the Esper Collection, and it should be discounted following the September launch. So you’ll be able to pick up the original and play it through and then get straight onto the sequel.
Esper 2 is a direct sequel to Esper. Esper was a launch title for the Samsung Gear VR, powered by Oculus and has also been announced for the Oculus Rift.
Make your way through ancient temples, government buildings, underwater bases and more, as you use your powers to solve puzzles and uncover secrets.
Esper 2 features an all-star cast. Eric Meyers, the voice of Geoff in the original, makes his return. Joining him are the fantastic trio of Nick Frost, Lara Pulver and Sean Pertwee..
