Discover your inner Arch-mage. Veteran developer Insomniac Games presents The Unspoken—an Oculus Touch‐enabled VR action game that pulls players into a hidden world of spellcasting and magician’s duels. Manipulate the environment around you with the powerful arcane forces that flow through your fingertips, summon unfathomable monstrosities with your bare hands, and rise up through the ranks of an urban magic fight club.
It will be called “The Unspoken: Acolytes”. Here’s the official press release statement, followed by the trailer.
The demo is playable right now at Oculus Connect 4 in San Jose!
The Unspoken: Acolytes reveals the untold story of Chicago’s secret spell-casting duels. You’ll travel through neon alleys to face down other-dimensional Demons, cross vertigo-inducing rooftops to battle large-scale Wraiths, and sneak into hidden sanctums to investigate the murder of an acolyte.
You’ll cast spells with your bare hands. From a finessed flick of the wrist to a visceral push, the play style is up to you – five classes channel their energies to cast over thirty spells. You’ll levitate cars, unleash electricity, and see the future.
The Unspoken: Acolytes is designed with variable difficulty and selectable classes, for brand-new and experienced players alike. For new players, the chapter provides an ideal point of entry—a way to hone your skills before playing a competitive match. And for experienced players, the chapter offers more insight into the world of The Unspoken—a deeper look at the history of spell-casting classes, the duel, and the Astral Plane itself, with rewards that feed into The Unspoken PvP.
Best of all, The Unspoken: Acolytes story chapter is a FREE update for existing players, and included for purchase with the award-winning competitive game. Look for it later this year. In the meantime, download The Unspoken today in the Oculus Store.
The single-player game is our number one player request, and it’s an experience we’ve wanted to make for a long time. But Arch-Mages, don’t fret! We’re still all-in on the competitive game, with more updates and more surprises just around the corner.
We’ll see you in the Astral Plane!
