Virtual reality (VR) fans are likely already familiar with Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes. This unique experience, which has already seen release on the Gear VR mobile head-mounted display (HMD), combats claims that VR technology is antisocial by forcing 2 players to work together in order to diffuse a bomb. Recently the developer of this anticipated title has revealed a release date for the PC version, which supports the Oculus Rift. As it turns out, fans won’t have to wait long to get their hands on this version.
The official website for Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes reveals that the PC version on the title will be on Steam on 8th October 2015. This will mean that the title should support the second development kit (DK2) for the Oculus Rift, with support for the consumer version likely to be added once it’s released in the first quarter of next year. The developer hasn’t confirmed if it will be bringing the title to the HTC Vive PC-based HMD, but a port to PlayStation 4 with support for the Project Morpheus HMD was confirmed at last year’s PlayStation Experience.
In Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes one player puts on the given VR HMD and finds a bomb sitting in front of them. Meanwhile, the other player has a list of instructions on how to diffuse said bomb, but is unable to see it for themselves. Players must communicate in order to decide what type of bomb they have and how best to act while up against the clock. Challenges involve cutting the correct wires and identifying symbols, the guides for which can be downloaded for free.
