There’s not many videogames that offer true cross-platform support for Oculus Rift, HTC Vive and PlayStation VR. The most well known is CCP Games’ EVE: Valkyrie, but today another title enters the fold, this time from Ubisoft in the form of Werewolves Within.
For those that haven’t been following VRFocus’ coverage of Werewolves Within, the virtual reality (VR) videogame is being developed by Red Storm. It’s an online multiplayer party title for between five to eight people, that combines immersive technology with the classic competitiveness of playing with friends around a game table. Set in the small medieval town of Gallowston, players are randomly randomly assigned roles and abilities, with one of these being a werewolf. It’s up to the other players in the group to utilise the skills of their characters, along with a guidebook with hints, and the power of persuasion to assess each other. Each round is played quickly, assigning players new roles every time, mixing up gameplay.
Ubisoft has released a brand new trailer for the launch (seen below) which mixes gameplay footage with player engagement, showcasing what to expect from the title. Werewolves Within can be downloaded now from each of the head-mounted displays (HMDs) respective stores. And for further Ubisoft announcements, keep reading VRFocus.
