Hammerhead VR Confirms Release Date for Horror Experience Syren

Today Hammerhead VR, the studio behind virtual reality (VR) projects like ABE VR and Thunderhead, has announced the release date for its next project, horror video game Syren.

The announcement came by way of a new dark and moody image inside the underwater research facility. Syren will support Oculus Rift, HTC Vive and PlayStation VR. The launch, scheduled for 15th February, will just be for the first two headsets. PlayStation VR owners will have to wait a little longer, Syren will be available for Sony Interactive Entertainment’s (SIE) head-mounted display (HMD) in March.

Syren Release Date announcement

“Syren is the first game in our new series of sci-fi fantasy titles currently in development. It follows the amazing response we had to ABE VR and continues our focus on unique, high quality experiences created specifically for VR. Syren is great as it draws on myths of monsters in the deep and mad scientists, so we had plenty of fun making the game and hope people enjoy it,” said joint managing director, Simon Windsor.

First unveiled in November with Hammerhead VR releasing a teaser trailer, Syren is part stealth, part survival with puzzles to be solved alongside dealing with the creatures the facilities scientist has created.
