Sad news for all you VR gamers eagerly awaiting the release of Xing: The Land Beyond. Developer, White Lotus Interactive, have pushed back the scheduled release a couple extra days. While the original release date was set for the 18th of September, the 21st is now the official launch date.
While the three-day delay might not seem like much, fans of the first person puzzle adventure have been watching Xing develop for almost three years now. But, as the developer has stated, publishing games can be difficult. A few more days to polish probably won’t kill anyone.
You Have Died
Xing: The Land Beyond places players into a puzzle rich first person adventure that takes place after your death. As you explore your new state of being, you will unravel the memories of those long lost, gather relics, and learn to harness the elements. The mysterious lands of the undead can be a tricky place full of traps, so keep your wits about you.
You will encounter puzzles that require your mastery of the elemental skills you acquire on your journey. Interestingly enough, you will also be faced with some platformer elements that will have you jumping around from platform to platform, but with no teleportation. All player movement will come from a controller based free movement system.
One of the constant remarks made about Xing is how beautiful the world around you is. Complete with weather effects, day and night cycles, and a vibrant palate of colors, it is easy to see why it receives the praise. The developer’s decision to utilize the Unreal Engine 4 appears to have made the wait one worthy of your death.
Unfortunately, we do not have a price to share with you at this time. We do know that Xing: The Land Beyond will be available for the Rift, Vive, and PlayStation VR. The game will also support tracked motion controls with room scale and a seated controller based experience as well. A little something for everyone.
