Fun Train and Wolf & Wood have been slowly adding new chapters to the virtual reality (VR) horror series The Exorcist: Legion VR since its initial launch for PC headsets in November 2017. As further chapters have come out the developer has continually stated a PlayStation VR version was in the works without clarifying when that might see the light of day. Today, the teams have now confirmed PlayStation VR owners will be able to enjoy the horror series later this month.
The Exorcist: Legion VR is launching on PlayStation VR with the first three chapters available:
- Chapter 1 – “First Rites” – Players must investigate the ritualistic murder of Father Bell, a priest at the local church. While there, they discover that he was researching the return of a cadre of very dangerous entities- the Legion. Collecting several of the priest’s arcane exorcism tools, it’s up to them to pick up where his work ended. Unfortunately, something, or someone, doesn’t want them to continue.
- Chapter 2 – “Idle Hands” – Explore what happens when people dabble in forces they don’t fully understand. Back at the police station, the player receives a package from a stranger directing them to investigate the sudden psychotic episode of an institutionalized school teacher who is tormented by an unseen force. The entity they encounter is as old as Babylon itself and is adept at using illusion to prevent them from severing its hold over its victim.
- Chapter 3 – “Skin Deep” – In this chapter players will encounter Abyzou, an entity 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. It’s the player’s task to force her to reveal herself, protect a newborn baby and send her back from whence she came!
Inspired by the world created by horror maestro William Peter Blatty, each chapter is part investigation…part exorcism, featuring a unique demonic entity that aim to test player’s skills. Each episode in the series features approximately 25 minutes of gameplay and can be purchased individually for $6.99 USD, or the Complete Series (including the forthcoming Chapter 4 “Samaritan” and Chapter 5 “The Tomb”) will be available for $29.99. If you buy Chapter 1 and then want access to the rest of the series simply purchase a Season Pass for $24.99.
Chapters 4 – 5 are slated for release later in the summer for PlayStation VR (Chapter 4 has already launched on Steam). When those dates are announced, VRFocus will let you know.
