Having brought the first three chapters of episodic horror experience The Exorcist: Legion VR to PlayStation VR in June, developer Wolf & Wood and publisher Fun Train have announced the last two installments will become available at the beginning of October.
In The Exorcist: Legion VR players step into the shoes of a Boston homicide detective tasked with investigating a series of ritualistic murders, including a priest at a local church. They have all the makings of a serial killer but it soon becomes apparent at the cause is far more demonic.
The two chapters set to launch are:
Chapter 4 – Samaritan – A failed quarantine zone in Haiti has been racked by an unknown plague, and a slew of health worker deaths has led to the collapse of efforts to control the mounting victim toll. What (or who) lies at the heart of the epidemic is for you to uncover!
Chapter 5 – The Tomb – In this grand finale, players are transported deep into the mountains of Upper Mesopotamia to face the demon Pazuzu where one last confrontation will put everything they have learned to the test. The episode features some unique VR mechanics as well as a powerful and exhilarating climax.
“The team at Wolf & Wood have really delivered on this franchise in every possible way,” says Fun Train’s CEO Douglas Nabors. “The intricate level of detail and deep sense of dread that they have instilled in these new experiences demonstrates how powerful virtual reality is for the horror genre and the VR gaming medium in general.”
Compatible with PlayStation Move and Dualshock controllers, The Exorcist: Legion VR offers a variety of locomotion settings including free roam. Additionally, the release will see new Spanish & Japanese subtitle localization, enhancements to the calibration system, as well as new comfort options.
Chapters 4 and 5 will be available on Tuesday, 9th October for $6.99 USD each. The Complete Series (including the forthcoming Chapter 4 “Samaritan” and Chapter 5 “The Tomb”) is available for $29.99 or players can purchase a Season Pass for $24.99 (Chapters 2- 5) if they already have Chapter 1.
