The horror genre has found a natural home on virtual reality (VR) headsets, with the immersion they provide ramping up the scare factor of videogames. One of the most popular is VRWERX’s Paranormal Activity: The Lost Soul, a Steam Early Access title that supports Oculus Rift and HTC Vive. While most Oculus Rift users likely do use Steam there will be some that only go through Oculus Store, limiting their access to Paranormal Activity: The Lost Soul, but that’s set to change soon.
On Steam’s discussion thread for the title VRWERX has revealed Paranormal Activity: The Lost Soul is likely to appear on Oculus Store this week, if all goes to plan. Back in April the team said: “We are working on getting up on Oculus store. Oculus has specific requirements for us to put it up there and we are implementing them currently.” Followed by: “We are releasing on the oculus store with the next update, which is coming very soon.”
When quizzed this week on an update to the Oculus Store launch the studio commented: “Waiting on Oculus. hopefully this week.”
While Steam VR titles do work on Oculus Rift having them on the headsets own store can make for a smoother experience and certainly opens up the chances for more players to dive in.
Paranormal Activity: The Lost Soul has been in the works since 2015. The videogame isn’t based on any one of the films previously released, it’s simply set in the franchise’s universe. Armed with a torch, players need to explore an average looking home and uncover the mystery and horror that’s befallen this place.
VRFocus will continue its coverage of Paranormal Activity: The Lost Soul, reporting back with the latest updates to the title.
