Last summer indie developer MarsLit Games announced its first title with virtual reality (VR) support, Unknown Fate. Prior to the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) 2017 next week, publisher 1C Company has announced the videogame is due to launch this Autumn and provided a new trailer to tease the upcoming release.
Unknown Fate is a story-driven first-person adventure set in a surreal universe. Players are cast in the role of Richard, needing to piece together his broken memories by exploring several worlds, each occupied by a guardian. There are four guardians, each of which occupy his own world, but there is a fifth, who has succeeded in breaking the boundaries tying him to one place. Able to roam all the worlds freely, this last guardian might be able to answer all the questions in Richard’s head, depending on which side is chosen.
Players will encounter strange characters, unfamiliar artifacts and scenes resembling Richard’s former life, having to solve environmental puzzles and defeat enemies as they progress.
The new trailer has been rendered in-engine with Unity, giving the best look yet at what Unknown Fate will offer.
MarsLit Games will be demoing Unknown Fate for the first time at Gamescom 2017 in August, which VRFocus will be attending, so expect some hands-on coverage from the event.
VRFocus will continue its coverage of Unknown Fate, reporting back with any further updates.
