VR is something that I genuinely believe to be a massive success. We’ve seen so many “innovations” over the years that have wound up being little more than fads but I really believe VR to be something that is here to stay. With this being said, whenever a new game is added to the collection for any VR enabled platform it’s really interesting to see what it’s going to be offering. In this particular case I can tell you that The Talos Principle VR is now available on Steam for the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift.
Croteam, the same group behind Serious Sam VR, and our pals over at Devolver Digital, have announced the release of The Talos Principle VR. As mentioned this is compatible with the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift at a price of $39.99. As a nice little addition … if you buy the game you’ll also receive the four – episode Road to Gehenna VR expansion absolutely free.
The game is a Virtual Reality re-imagining of Croteam’s critically acclaimed first-person puzzler which is created in the tradition of philosophical science fiction. Redesigned from the ground up, The Talos Principle VR features roomscale VR support, multiple movement modes and fully customizable VR controls that take full advantage of the HTC Vive.
“If you thought solving puzzles in the Talos Principle made you feel like a genius then you’re going to pee your philosophical pants in The Talos Principle VR,” noted Devolver Digital CFO and virtual reality visionary Fork Parker.
So if you’ve played the original game, loved it, and have VR then this could certainly be a very sensible way to go. Of course, if you haven’t played the first game, are VR capable and fancy giving the old brain cells a bit of a work out The Talos Principle VR may well also be a brilliant way of doing it. Either way, if this is something that’s peaking your interest you can find out a bit more here.
