It’s been a long time in the making but finally today White Lotus Interactive has released its long awaited puzzle adventure XING: The Land Beyond on Steam, with full support for HTC Vive and Oculus Rift.
XING: The Land Beyond transports you to XING, an afterlife where secrets lay in wait to be uncovered telling the truth about why you’re there and who you are. The videogame is littered with environment-based puzzles which require powers and abilities gained along the way to solve them, such as rain and snow.
Because the videogame has been designed to support both virtual reality (VR) headsets and standard desktop monitors White Lotus Interactive has ensured there are plenty of control options available. Gamepads and motion controls are fully supported with VR players able to use a free movement system the studio calls ‘Reins’ because it is similar to directing a horse, which VRFocus goes into more detail in a recent preview. There’s also the usual analogue stick style with snap turning and smooth rotation options.
XING: The Land Beyond can be purchased through Steam for £14.99 GBP. There will also be a version for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation VR although at the time of writing the title isn’t listed on the console’s store.
