Wolf & Wood, the British indie developer behind episodic virtual reality (VR) horror The Exorcist: Legion VR, has today announced the launch date for the third installment of the franchise, with Chapter 3: Skin Deep coming to Oculus Rift and HTC Vive next week.
Originally the third episode was due for release before the end of 2017, with the studio releasing a teaser trailer just prior to Christmas, having launched episodes one and two a month before. Wolf & Wood didn’t disclose the reason for the delay but it’s easy to surmise it was for last minute bug removal and final tweaks.
The Exorcist: Legion VR – Chapter 3: Skin Deep continues the detectives journey into a dark and twisted occult world. In this story a wave of infant mortality has struck and a number of distraught parents have posted online, claiming to have heard the sound of an old woman calming the cries of their babies. A copy of one such recording landed on the detectives desk and it’s recent. It’s up to you to stop a demon before any more go missing.
Wolf & Wood explain: “in Chapter 3 players will meet Abyzou, the infertile devil who has been blamed for infant mortality throughout the history of civilization. Many cultures have encountered her and she has been given many names, from Lilith in Hebrew to Medusa in Greek. Her hunger for the innocent and unwanted is insatiable. In this case, a newborn baby.”
There’s been no confirmation on price just yet, but with the first two chapters retailing for £3.99GBP/$4.99 USD on both Steam and Oculus Store expect the pricing structure to remain the same.
Wolf & Wood has also reiterated the same statement as before regarding the PlayStation VR version of The Exorcist: Legion VR: “Currently in the final rounds of VR consultation with Sony, and Chapters 1 & 2 will be concurrently launching soon.” As and when those launch date details arrive, VRFocus will let you know.
