The week of the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) is a bewildering array for videogame news from across the industry. While virtual reality (VR) is still niche in comparison to traditional console or PC videogaming E3 hasn’t disappointed with a nice selection of announcements. This week Croteam has quietly announced that The Talos Principle VR, a first-person puzzle title is still in the works.
The studio simply said in a Tweet: “The
#E32017 is on, and so is The Talos Principle VR. Currently demoed behind closed doors!” No other details have been release thus far other than a gif showcasing one of the puzzles and a pair of HTC Vive controllers, so that at least confirms one head-mounted display (HMD).
Originally, Croteam released The Talos Principle in 2014 for PC, receiving ‘overwhelmingly positive’ feedback from the Steam community. The videogame revolves around players waking in a strange world of ancient ruins and advanced technology, tasked with solving increasingly complex puzzles whilst deciding to have faith or ask the difficult question in life.
Then in 2015 the studio announced SteamVR support, unlocking a public beta. Since then all has been quiet until this week with Croteam now demoing the experience for select E3 2017 attendees.
VRFocus will endeavour to find out further details on The Talos Principle VR, so keep checking back for further updates.
