Originally slated for a September release, Cloudhead Games has now confirmed that the next installment of its virtual reality (VR) series The Gallery – Episode 2: Heart of the Emberstone will now be released on 18th October 2017.
In a statement on Steam the studio explained its decision to delay the launch, saying: “The game is effectively finished at this point, but as a small team we’ve decided to take the opportunity to put some extra love (and bug fixes) into Emberstone before launch. We’re running out of days in September, and while “Heart of the Octoberstone” doesn’t have quite as nice a ring to it, we feel it’s the right choice to make the best game for our fans.”
Aside from the release date, Cloudhead Games has also said The Gallery – Episode 2: Heart of the Emberstone will take around four to six hours to complete and it’ll cost $29.99 USD. There will be a 10 percent bundle discount when purchasing both episodes, and for existing owners of Episode 1 there will be a “complete the bundle” discount.
Or if you’ve not played The Gallery: Episode 1 – Call of the Starseed yet and want to complete that before Episode 2 comes out, then it’s currently available on Steam, Oculus Store and Viveport for 50 percent off until 4th October.
