If you love the horror genre then virtual reality (VR) has got you covered. VR allows for a much more intense experience than film or standard videogames, as such developers have been readily exploring new ways to scare players. One of the most popular film franchises of recent years has been Paranormal Activity, and this March a VR adaption arrives on Steam Early Access.
Paranormal Activity: The Lost Soul has been in the works since 2015 – under the previous title Paranormal Activity VR – appearing at several events along the way. Created by VRWERX, the experience isn’t based on any one of the films previously released, simple set in the franchises universe. Story line details haven’t been released yet, but VRFocus previously reported that the studio is planning a fairly sizeable videogame with a run time of around 10 hours.
To coincide with the March release announcement VRWERX has unveiled a new trailer which plays on the whole horror atmosphere of Paranormal Activity. Gameplay wise very little is showcased, with the camera slowing moving down a dimly lit corridor towards music playing in a a distant room. Do you want to go inside? What’s in the room? You’ll have to wait till next month to find out.
Paranormal Activity: The Lost Soul will launch for Oculus Rift and HTC Vive though Steam on 14th March initially, with a date for the PlayStation VR version still to be announced.
