Croteam is no stranger to VR, having released VR versions of their Serious Sam titles, such as Serious Sam VR: The Second Encounter, Serious Sam VR: The First Encounter and Serious Sam VR: The Last Hope. This time, they are creating a VR remake of “The Talos Principle“, a first person puzzle game in the tradition of philosophical science fiction.
As if awakening from a deep sleep, you find yourself in a strange, contradictory world of ancient ruins and advanced technology. Tasked by your creator with solving a series of increasingly complex puzzles, you must decide whether to have faith, or to ask the difficult questions: Who are you? What is your purpose And what are you going to do about it?
Croteam is very serious about VR remake of their classic titles, and if you have played one of their Serious Sam VR titles, you should know what I mean. The Talos Principle VR is no exception, as the developers has pledged many VR features to quell any fear that this might be just a lazy cash-in port. Croteam states that this game will feature many locomotion supports:
- Instant Teleport
- Blink Teleport
- Classic Full Locomotion (with or without comfort mode)
In addition, there will be VR motion control, as well as Roomscale support too! According to Croteam, you will be able to use your hands to “divert drones, manipulate laser beams and even replicate time to prove your worth – or to find a way out.”
The Talos Principle VR will be releasing later this year for HTC Vive and Oculus Rift. The flat screen, normal version of The Talos Principle is available on Steam, and it is very likely The Talos Principle VR will be a fully separate version of the game on Steam.
Here’s a trailer (that was released today) along with some screenshots for this game.
