Incuvo, the Polish developer behind the virtual reality (VR) versions of Bloober Team’s Layers of Fear and Blair Witch has announced its next port. The studio is working with Creepy Jar on Green Hell VR, an open world survival videogame slated for release next year.
Creepy Jar launched Green Hell in 2019, receiving ‘Very Positive’ ratings from the Steam community in the process. The survival sim dumps players in the Amazon rainforest without any food or equipment, challenging them to find a way out by learning survival techniques, making tools and building shelters whilst fighting hunger, thirst, fatigue, disease and even mental health.
All of this will then be coming to PC VR headsets and Oculus Quest in late 2021 confirms Incuvo. From the details released so far the team are trying to include all the original elements whilst catering to VR’s immersive requirements. If the recent Blair Witch: Oculus Quest Edition is anything to go by Green Hell VR should be in good hands.
“We have recently completed the pre-production phase of our latest project with survival elements, Green Hell VR. We are currently at the stage of preparing the alpha version, which in Q1 2021 will show recipients the huge potential of this survival game in virtual reality. We focus on implementing the latest mechanics in order to achieve exceptional immersion. We make every effort to ensure that the final project meets the expectations of the players, which, as we know, are big, ” said Andrzej Wychowaniec, CEO of Incuvo in a statement
Once the alpha testing has been completed the team expect the beta version of the project should be ready by Q2 2021.
Currently, Green Hell VR is scheduled for release Q3 2021 for SteamVR headsets and Oculus Rift, with an Oculus Quest version arriving Q4 2021. For further updates on the survival experience, keep reading VRFocus.
