Ubisoft is one of the few major console and PC game publishers that has decided to commit to releasing a number of big VR games. The publisher has launched three such titles in the past several months, including Star Trek: Bridge Crew just a couple of weeks ago. Today, as part of its E3 2017 press event, Ubisoft announced yet another upcoming VR game, Transference, and it looks like it’s going to be very creepy.
The game itself is being developed by FunHouse, a division of Ubisoft Montreal, in collaboration with SpectreVision, a film production company that counts actor Elijah Wood as one of its co-founders. The premise of Transference is that the player is supposed to be looking inside the mind of a specific person, who has had his thoughts and memories converted into digital form. The game will allow players to explore this person’s mind, and also uncover what might be some sinister secrets about him and his family.
The trailer that was released to promote Transference also features Wood, and it is pretty creepy on its own, so we would imagine the game will be very frightening. Transference is due sometime in the spring of 2018 for the PlayStation VR, Oculus Rift and HTC Vive headsets. It will also be released in a non-VR version for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.
