Last month saw 3rd Eye Studios launch its virtual reality (VR) sci-fi thriller Downward Spiral: Horus Station for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation VR. Today the studio has announced a partnership with Perp Games to bring the title to retail stores, starting in November with Europe followed by North America in the near future.
Offering a core single-player adventure where players find themselves on a deserted space station, Downward Spiral: Horus Station is a zero-g thriller with players having to solve puzzles and unlock the story through environmental clues – there are no cut-scenes or dialogue in the videogame.
Whilst investigating, players will find out that they’re not completely alone on the station which is why they they need to find maintenance hardware on the ship, such as bolt throwers, rail guns and arc wielders to help solve the puzzles and fight back against oncoming threats.
Downward Spiral: Horus Station will be available for PlayStation VR at retail in Europe on 9th November, with a USA release to follow. “We think Horus Station is something special and are very much looking forward to seeing it physically in stores,” 3rd Eye Studios Co-Founder, Tapio Vierros said in a statement. “From the outset, Perp Games looked like an ideal partner to make that happen, and it has been a pleasant experience to work with them.”
“We love 3rd Eye Studios approach to gaming. So many new and exciting ideas are packed into Downward Spiral: Horus Station. From the amazing Zero Gravity movement to the eerie silence of the abandoned space station, the game is simply mind blowing,” adds Rob Edwards, MD of Perp Games.
Alongside the singleplayer you can always team up with a mate in the co-op mode, or go head to head with the PvP multiplayer.
