If there’s one videogame virtual reality (VR) horror fans will likely be looking forward to in 2021 then Fast Travel Games’ Wraith: The Oblivion – Afterlife is probably it. Set to support most major platforms, the studio has released a new video showcasing footage from the Oculus Quest 2 version.
The video is split into five segments listing the title’s various plus points, from being a wraith who can walk through walls to its rich narrative and suspenseful gameplay. Narrated by Fast Travel Games Andreas Juliusson, each talking point is accompanied by development footage shot on the Oculus Quest 2. It might not be final launch quality but it gives you a good idea of what to expect.
As the footage takes you through various areas of the Barclay mansion, some such as the projector room have been seen before. Yet there are plenty of areas that have not, and it gives a much better impression of how large the mansion is and the amount of exploration involved.
You also get to see some of the special abilities and interactive elements you’ll be able to employ to help work out what’s going on as well as hiding from the Spectres stalking your every footstep. Abilites include Wraith Grasp to pickup distant objects or Insubstantiality – the walking through walls trick.
If you’re a World of Darkness fan, Wraith: The Oblivion – Afterlife shares the same universe as Vampire: The Masquerade and Werewolf: The Apocalypse. This VR version will also be the first time the Wraith’s perspective has been made available.
While the new video may concentrate on the Oculus Quest 2 version, Wraith: The Oblivion – Afterlife will also support Oculus Rift/Rift S, HTC Vive, Valve Index and PlayStation VR when is arrives early next year. As previously reported, the Oculus versions will support cross-buy via the Oculus Store.
