Transference, a psychological virtual reality thriller, will release in Spring 2018 for PlayStation VR, HTC Vive, and Oculus Rift.
Ubisoft revealed the game at its E3 2017 press conference. It is developed as a collaboration between FunHouse, a Ubisoft Montreal division, and Spectre Vision, a production company founded by Elijah Wood, Daniel Noah, and John C. Waller.
Set in a digital recreation of a person’s mind, the game will have players uncovering the secrets being concealed by a family and their home. The game is inspired by research which measures brain waves as a method of visually recreating dreams. In the house, players will meet the family members and dive into their own memories each with a unique perspective. Player choice will directly have consequences on the family’s fate.
“The game is a thrilling mixture of both our experience in storytelling and Ubisoft’s unparalleled skill at crafting deeply immersive worlds, says Elijah Wood, who acts as SpectreVision’s creative director. “We jumped at the chance of working in VR with Ubisoft and we believe we have a beautiful and haunting game that will really resonate with players, even after they’ve taken off their headset.”
Transference will also be available for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
