We’ve been keeping an eager eye on Downward Spiral: Horus Station since the launch of its prologue chapter last year, but now the full thing is nearly here.
The zero-gravity adventure, developed by Finland-based 3rd Eye Studios, will be releasing on PC on March 31st with optional support for the Oculus Rift, HTC Vive and Windows VR headsets for $19.99/£14.99. The promised PS4 and PSVR release will come later this summer. You can get a pretty good idea of what the game’s all about in the third developer diary, which was also released this week.
Horus Station is a first-person adventure set onboard the titular space station. You explore the deserted facility, trying to uncover what’s happened to the crew. Along the way you’ll gather tools to solve puzzles and navigate obstacles in the environment. Weapons to fight drones and other enemies come as tools previous intended to repair the ship. The game can be played either in single-player or with a friend in a two-player co-op mode.
We’re looking forward to Horus Station largely because it looks like a full experience designed specifically around VR (even if the support is optional). It’s not often we see a full story-driven campaign in VR, let alone one that supports cooperative play. We’ll find out if the game lives up to our expectations later this month.
