With Sony Interactive Entertainment’s (SIE’s) PlayStation VR head-mounted display (HMD) still over six months away from launch, it’s quite early for developers to be announcing titles that will be available. But several have already done so and the latest is FATED: The Silent Oath from Canadian developer Frima Studios.
Revealed today, not only will FATED: The Silent Oath be a launch title for the PlayStation VR it’ll also be arriving on 28th April 2016 for Oculus Rift and HTC Vive HMDs.
Developed with Unreal Engine 4, FATED: The Silent Oath takes players on one man’s quest to protect his family from the destruction of their world at the hands of the gods. Set in the mythical age of Vikings the emotionally-charged story revolves around the exile of a man and his family during Ragnarök – the end times. As he travels with them, he witnesses events which are both terrifying and touching, learning about himself and his loved ones.
“Fear is a concept that is relatively easy to achieve in Virtual Reality, but for FATED, we wanted to explore compassion, sadness, happiness and other complex emotions”, said Vincent Martel, Executive Producer on FATED. “Nothing is stronger than the connection between a parent and his child. We knew we would strike a sensitive chord with players in FATED.”
Below is the launch trailer for FATED: The Silent Oath, and VRFocus will continue to bring you the latest updates for the title.
