Fate/Grand Order VR will be heading to PlayStation VR as a free download for users in Japan on 6th December, 2017. Developer Type-Moon have released a 360-degree trailer to raise excitement for the title amongst fans.
Fate/Grand Order VR is a spin-off from online free-to-play RPG Fate/Grand Order, which is in turn based on the Fate/Stay Night visual novel series. Fate/Grand Order is a turn-based tactical RPG that follows the story of a group called the Grand Order, who have been charged with the task of travelling back in time to correct a series of temporal anomalies that threaten to render humanity extinct.
As with the Fate/Stay Night titles, Fate/Grand Order presents its story in the format of a visual novel, in which the player takes the role of a ‘Master’ who can command powerful summons and familiars known as ‘Servants’. Each servant has its own personal scenario that the player explores over the course of gameplay.
The virtual reality (VR) spin-off, which to is known in full as Fate/Grand Order VR feat. Mash Kyrielight and instead of a full RPG, will instead act a a ‘VR Drama’ set in the Fate/Grand Order universe. Players will be able to travel with Mash, a ‘Servant’ character from the Fate/Grand Order RPG who has been infused with a powerful Heroic Spirit, something that servers to tie in to the overarching mythology elements taken from the legends of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table.
What level of interaction players will have during Fate/Grand Order VR is not yet known. The title will be available for free download for PlayStation VR users in Japan from 6th December, 2017. The 360-degree trailer is available to view below.
