NetEase, a leading Chinese internet technology company have revealed their latest videogame at Gamescom 2018 in the form of the virtual reality (VR) title Nostos. This new title invites players to the vast, tranquil world of Nostos where they will step into the shoes of a survivor who must work together with others in order to survive within this unknown land.
Details on the title are thin at the moment, but from what is currently available it is clear that Nostos is a virtual world full of a rich variety of landscapes and locations to explore. Historical sites are located throughout the world and these hold the remnants of a war that will need to be uncovered in order to learn the truth about what happened, now lost to the sands of time.
Described as an open-world VR title that is brimming with life, the videogame features a range of beautiful looking locations that are full of both animals and nature to offer a truly immersive experience. In the trailer released for the title, there is what looks to be a mix between technology and a more fantasy world. With large spanning forests, winding rivers and breath taking views to enjoy, the world of Nostos seems rich and detailed.
As for gameplay, it looks as though the title will feature a number of different mechanics including climbing, house building, combat and possibility even cooking. As players will need to work with the characters of the world to survive in this world, they can expect to need to master the basic arts of survival such as building shelter and fighting off dangerous monsters. Speaking of which, the enemies in Nostos look to be right out of the worst parts of the world but you’ll be able to fight back using what looks like swords and guns.
On top of all that, the character design of Nostos are interesting and unique and even the friendly animals are a pleasure to view. What mysteries the world holds however, and what players ultimate goal will be remains unknown at this point. If the trailer – which you can watch below – is anything to go by though, this looks to be a very detailed and promising title that hints at possible multiplayer as well.
VRFocus will be sure to bring you all the latest on the title in the future so make sure to stay tuned for more.
