There’s nothing like a good virtual reality (VR) scare to make the hairs stand up on the back of your neck and get the heart pumping. Especially in October for Halloween season. Popping up on Steam, Wolf & Wood is soon to release The Exorcist: Legion VR Deluxe Edition, a remastered version of its horror series.
Listed for release this month, The Exorcist: Legion VR Deluxe Edition will be the full five episodes with enhanced graphics and animations says the developer. Additionally, the new edition with feature improved movement controls, Valve Index controller support and Oculus Rift S optimisations.
Details regarding price and launch date have yet to be revealed, however, purchasing the current complete series costs £18.95 GBP on Steam, so expect it to be a similar price. Wolf & Wood hasn’t confirmed if any of these enhancements will come to the PlayStation VR version, or as an update for those that have already bought the title.
The Exorcist: Legion VR features 5 scary chapters: First Rites, Idle Hands, Skin Deep, Samaritan and The Tomb. Every chapter is around 30 minutes in length, each having its own unique story which is then part of a large narrative. You play 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 that the cause is far more demonic.
“Its the presentation where The Exorcist: Legion VR shines. It is not long or complex, but it has bags of atmosphere and says what it needs to say with panache,” VRFocus said in its four-star PlayStation VR review. “The sense of presence is used effectively to give you a properly immersive horror experience.”
For those after something a little less scary and more destructive then Wolf & Wood has just released Hotel R’n’R on Steam Early Access. Taking place in various hotel rooms, you’re a musician who has made a deal with the devil for fame and fortune. To repay the demon all you need to do is cause a lot of damage.
VRFocus will continue its coverage of Wolf & Wood, reporting back with the latest updates.
