Schell Games and its puzzle experience I Expect You To Die was part of a flurry of developers to confirm support for upcoming standalone headset Oculus Quest at the end of March. Now the studio has stated that the title will definitely be available on launch day and that it’ll support cross-buy functionality.
I Expect You To Die joins a growing lineup of Oculus Quest titles supporting cross-buy on Oculus Store, including Apex Construct and OrbusVR: Reborn. Cross-buy support is an important feature when it concerns long term Oculus supporters who own an Oculus Rift. I Expect You To Die was a launch experience for Oculus Touch back in 2016, so it’s more than likely quite a few people own it, especially when in September 2018, Schell Games announced the popular VR game had surpassed $3 million USD in revenue. So any Rift owners purchasing a Quest will automatically have a library of content available.
“Fans were requesting that we bring I Expect You to Die to the Oculus Quest long before the headset was even announced and we listened,” said Jesse Schell, CEO of Schell Games in a statement. “We’re planning to continue expanding the game and rewarding our players, especially with free, new content coming later this year.”
An award-winning, escape-the-room VR spy puzzle videogame, I Expect You To Die puts you in the role of an elite secret agent. In a race to thwart the evil Dr. Zor players have to survive deadly situations and complete missions using their problem-solving skills without succumbing to the villain’s traps and tricks.
“VR is bringing a completely new energy to games,” Schell mentions on Oculus Blog. “With immersive and engaging hardware like Oculus Quest, it’s easy for players to forget their surroundings and become singularly involved in an experience. And with a lower price point, the barriers to entry have been lowered, making VR a solid choice for many players who have been reluctant to try the technology before now.”
I Expect You To Die is available for download now for $24.99 USD on Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, and PlayStation VR. For further updates keep reading VRFocus.
