The Exorcist: Legion VR has been scaring players since 2018, an episodic horror fest played out over five chapters. Now, publisher Fun Train has announced that production is already underway on a sequel. Called SIN (Safety in Numbers) as the name suggests, this time the horror title will have a co-op element so you can share the frights with a friend.
For the sequel Fun Train has teamed up with Pocket Money Games (Superhot, Dimension Hunter, The Twilight Zone VR), advancing the chilling storyline and mythology that made The Exorcist: Legion VR so atmospheric. SIN will feature both single-player and multiplayer modes, as well as “other mechanics and playstyles never seen before in a horror co-op game,” the developer notes.
Other than that not much else is known about SIN currently, no screenshots or gameplay has been released thus far with none in the teaser video below. What is expected though is an episodic release, as this is a hallmark of Fun Train with its other title Tarzan VR split across three chapters.
“We’ve received numerous requests for expansions of the Exorcist franchise and I’m happy to reveal it has been underway for some time,” says Douglas Nabors, Fun Train CEO in a statement. “Just a word of warning – if you thought the first game was frightening… luckily this time you won’t have to go in alone.”
The Exorcist: Legion VR was one of VRFocus‘ favourite VR horrors. Reviewing the videogame back in 2018: “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. The sense of presence is used effectively to give you a properly immersive horror experience.”
Pocket Money Games and Fun Train are looking at releasing SIN for Oculus Quest and PlayStation VR in late 2022. For continued updates on the horror sequel, keep reading VRFocus.
