If you’re a fan of the Myst franchise then you’ll be happy to hear that its developer Cyan are bringing the VR support for their latest game, sci-fi adventure Obduction, to Windows Mixed Reality HMDs, including the optional motion controls. Please note that playing Obduction in VR does require quite a powerful PC, although I don’t know the exact minimun or recommended specs for the Windows MR version.
You can watch a trailer for Obduction above and read more info in the following description taken from the official website:
From Cyan, the indie studio that brought you Myst, comes a new sci-fi adventure.
As you walk beside the lake on a cloudy night, a curious, organic artifact falls from the starry sky and inexplicably, without asking permission, transports you across the universe. You’ve been abducted from your cozy existence and added into an alien landscape with pieces of Earth from unexpected times and places.
The strange worlds of Obduction reveal their secrets only as you explore, discover, coax, and consider their clues. As you bask in the otherworldly beauty and explore the enigmatic landscapes, remember that the choices you make will have substantial consequences. This is your story now.
Make it home.
For 25 years, Cyan has been developing games that create a sense of immersion, a sense of presence, a sense of wonder. VR enables Cyan to elevate their craft to a whole new level. Built in Unreal Engine 4, Obduction has a stunning visual aesthetic. Its imaginative worlds drive a player’s desire to explore, observe and discover.
Are you looking forward to Obduction or have already played the non-VR version and want to play it in VR? Have you played it on another VR system already and if so what did you think? Let us know in the comments below or create a discussion in our (PC) Windows Mixed Reality VR Games forum.
