The studio that created the classically popular point-and-click puzzle adventures, Myst and Riven, released their next sci-fi adventure puzzle game (what a mouthful) called Obduction last year for PC and Oculus Rift. Obduction then came to HTC Vive and got Oculus Touch support in March this year with the promise that the game will be coming to PSVR later this year as well.
Well, lucky for Playstation VR owners – the wait is finally over. Because Cyan’s best-selling VR title, Obduction is finally coming to PSVR next month on August 29. The game will launch with a $29.99 price tag.
“It’s been almost two decades since we created a product for console, and we couldn’t be happier about our return to PlayStation. We’ve been working really hard to craft a special Obduction experience for both PS4 and PSVR, and we’re so excited to get Obduction to our PlayStation fans,“ said Rand Miller, CEO of Cyan, Inc. in a statement.
If you haven’t heard of Obduction before, it’s a puzzle game with gameplay elements a lot like the studio’s iconic Myst. In Obduction you’re abducted (as the name gives away) and taken to a faraway alien planet with strange remnants and pieces of your home planet, Earth. It’s up to you to traverse this wonderfully strange and breathtakingly beautiful landscape to figure out why you’re here and how you can get back home.
Check out Obduction’s new trailer below:
The entire game has been ported to the PSVR platform, which means you’ll get the same experience that the Rift and Vive players got, but it also means no new features or content, unfortunately. However, some pre-orders do offer exclusive content like themes and avatars if you’re into collecting those. If not then at least you still get to experience the whole game.
