Elijah Wood, one of three partners of the film company SpectreVision known for its horror/thriller related films, has teamed up with gaming giant Ubisoft Montreal to bring a new first-person thriller game to fans this fall.
Ubisoft Montreal (a branch of Ubisoft) has released some major titles over the years most notably the “Assassin’s Creed” series, the “Far Cry” series, and “Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege”.
The two companies are working on a new psychological thriller video game called “Transference”. Players are unwilling participants in an experiment by Dr. Raymond Hayes who took brain data from himself, his wife, and their son and programmed it into a corrupt digital simulation.
Players will have to traverse the environments as they solve puzzles in order to unlock some secrets hidden in the minds of the Hayes family members.
The game is a unique mix of live action performances and digital gameplay that can be enjoyed with the aid of VR headsets, don’t worry; the game will also be available to play on consoles without VR. No specific details at the moment but I’m sure as fall approaches there will be more.
