At the end of 2020 Creepy Jar and Incuvo teased the first details for a virtual reality (VR) version of the open-world survival game Green Hell. No other details have been released since then, so today brings a welcome update, the very first teaser trailer for Green Hell VR.
The footage is from an alpha version of Green Hell VR, so while there are improvements to be made it gives a great glimpse at the survival adventure to come. Set within the Amazon rainforest you’ll have to navigate treacherous terrain, living off wildlife whilst trying not to be killed by local residents.
Make yourself a bow to hunt birds or step into the river to catch fish. Just beware that crocodiles might be lurking under the surface or a big cat within the bushes. Crafting is a big part of the survival experience so you’ll have to learn how to make tools, start fires to cook food and shelter, constantly fighting hunger, thirst, fatigue, disease and even mental health. As the video showcases, you can get some rather nasty wounds in the jungle which have to be dealt with.
By the looks of it, Green Hell VR is shaping up quite nicely. There’s still plenty that the trailer doesn’t show like the crafting mechanics and how the port will handle inventory because what works on a PC doesn’t necessarily translate into VR.
While Creepy Jar developed the original Green Hell Incuvo is handling the VR edition. The team already has extensive experience in that area having worked with Bloober Team on Blair Witch: Oculus Quest Edition so Green Hell VR is in good hands.
Apart from the new trailer, the teams haven’t released any further updates. So Green Hell VR to arrive in Q3 2021 for SteamVR headsets and Oculus Rift, with an Oculus Quest version slated for Q4 2021. VRFocus will continue its coverage of Green Hell VR, reporting back with further updates.
