Oculus Quest’s library of exclusive virtual reality (VR) titles seems to be growing by the week, recently releases including Myst, Warhammer 40,000: Battle Sister and Star Wars: Tales from the Galaxy’s Edge. Tomorrow, Coatsink will add another to that list, the intimidating Jurassic World Aftermath.
Oculus confirmed the launch tomorrow via its Twitter account today, as well as dropping a new trailer which offers a better look at the story and the terror to come. As one of the assortment of videogames revealed during Facebook Connect, Jurassic World Aftermath continues that major IP rollout into VR.
The narrative takes place two years after the event of Jurassic World, where you and your team are sent back – sound familiar? – to retrieve the highly valuable research materials left behind. The mission starts to go wrong before you even set foot on the island, crash landing at the facility. You’re not alone of course, as some hungry and very vicious Velociraptor’s stalk your every move.
So you need to find the info whilst ensuring you don’t become a light snack for these rather deadly carnivores. As the video highlights, there doesn’t seem to be any guns in Jurassic World Aftermath, only tools to help you solve various challenges. Sound is going to play an important part in your survival, you’ll be able to distract the dino’s so you can sneak by but make too much noise and its dinner time.
Jurassic World Aftermath certainly looks like it has that same helpless survival feel Alien: Isolation had – just with more creatures to avoid getting torn apart by.
At the moment Jurassic World Aftermath looks like its going to be one of the last videogames to be released for Oculus Quest in 2020. Only Crytek’s The Climb 2 is still expected this year, likely a surprise announcement in the next few days. If that happens, VRFocus will let you know.
