New Content Coming to Expand Moss Gameplay, Arriving First for Oculus Quest
Other platforms will receive the update a little later.
Polyarc’s Moss was an instant hit when it arrived for PlayStation VR in the early part of 2018. Players fell in love with the pint-sized hero Quill and the adventure to save her uncle. Arriving on Oculus Rift and HTC Vive a few months later, Moss was one of the first titles confirmed for the upcoming Oculus Quest headset, with Polyarc teasing fans could expect more. Today, that has now been confirmed, with brand new content set to expand the title across all platforms, arriving first for Oculus Quest next week.
There’s going to be plenty of new content for fans of Moss to enjoy, with a brand-new chapter called Twilight Garden to explore. In addition to the new chapter player’s will have a new mini-boss to fight, new environments to explore, puzzles to solve, character to talk to, an alternate weapon/armour set to enjoy, and of course more story. The new content is peppered throughout the videogame and can be accessed through portals players find in the environment.
“The Quest is a game changer for the VR industry, and something we’ve been eagerly anticipating as developers specializing in VR content. Its wireless head and hand tracking technology allows full immersion in another world, simply by picking up and putting on a headset, regardless of where you are,” said Josh Stiksma, principal designer, Polyarc in a statement. “Now you can explore the whimsical fairytale from home or on the go as you travel, commute, and visit friends or family. In addition, to make this experience even more magical, we’ve updated the game. Players may now discover and explore new content hidden within the world of Moss.”
As mentioned, in Moss it’s up to a little mouse named Quill to set out on a quest to find her uncle. The actual gameplay is two-fold, you’re a benevolent being that not only controls Quill and her actions but the environment as well. So at times, you’ll need to run Quill around the levels whilst using your other hand to manipulate them and successfully get her through.
Moss will be a launch day title when Oculus Quest arrives next Tuesday 21st May along with the new content. PlayStation VR, Oculus Rift/ Rift S, HTC Vive, and Windows Mixed Reality headsets will automatically receive the update in June.
