Previously released for the PlayStation VR, developers Forge Reply have announced that its virtual reality (VR) experience inspired by Greek myth will soon be heading to HTC Vive and Oculus Rift.
Using a third-person perspective that is relatively uncommon in VR titles, the player must help the titular protagonist navigate the dangerous, gloomy labyrinth where the invincible Minotaur waits to rip apart anyone foolish enough to enter. The only guide on this journey is the spirit Ariadne, who can offer advice and clues.
The PC release of Theseus will feature several improvements to graphics, with higher overall resolution, along with tweaks to shadows and textures to provide more polish to the experience. As with the PlayStation VR version, the focus remains on creating an engaging and immersive atmosphere and telling a strong story.
“With the PC release of Theseus, we aim to expand our reach and to consolidate our presence in the VR scenario,” said Filippo Rizzante, CTO at Reply. “PC fans have expressed the desire to play the game since the original announcement, and we are glad that soon they will be able to do just that.”
The developers anticipate the title receiving its release on PC sometime in Autumn 2017, though a firm release date has yet to be confirmed. A price point has not yet been set, but is likely to be in line with the price for the PlayStation VR version, which is currently $19.99 (USD).
