Ubisoft's psychological thriller Transference ditches VR requirement, is coming this fall

13 June 2018

Transference was a curiosity at Ubisoft's E3 2018 conference previous year. As proudly presented from the stage by the company's cofounder Elijah Wood (maybe you've heard the name), what unfolds of Transference begins a bit like Strange Days, with the "uncanny valley" cannily used as the side effect of entering someone else's point of view through computer hardware.

Imagine an escape room set in a deranged mind, in both VR and on traditional platforms.

Transference will launch for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC this fall, Ubisoft announced during its E3 2018 press conference.

The game's story finds the collected brain consciousness of "brilliant-but-troubled" scientist Raymond Hayes and his family forming a frightening digital simulation. The live-action storyline will shift between three different perspectivesm as you unravel the mystery at the heart of the family.

The psychological thriller first-person exploration VR game, which debuts this fall, puts players into the uploaded memory data of a traumatized mental patient. This is no RPG, you stumble into Raymond's experiment with your own experience and must interpret events for yourself. Those that want a more immersive experience will be happy to know that the game will also be available to play in virtual reality on PSVR, Oculus Rift, and HTC Vive.
