It looks like one of the best-looking VR games of 2018 will be with us in a few short weeks.
Torn from Aspyr games just got a pre-order listing on the PlayStation Store, which itself states the game is launching on August 28th. We’ve reached out to the developer to confirm the date is accurate. The page also confirms the game will cost $29.99, but if you pre-order you can get it for 15% off (or 20% if you’re a PS Plus member).
The game’s also coming to the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive, though we don’t see any release dates listed on those respective stores right now.
In Torn you play as Katherine Patterson, a video blogger that discovers a forgotten mansion deep in the heart of a thick forest. You explore the abandoned building, finding out about the life of Dr. Lawrence Talbot, who lived there until his strange disappearance over 64 years ago. Solving puzzles as you go, you begin to piece together what happened to Talbot and his work with another dimension. Expect to manipulate objects with telekinesis, pull switches and visit other realities.
One of the most notable things about the game, though, is that it’s visually stunning. Meticulously detailed mansion rooms and a gorgeous surrounding forest as just begging to be explored in VR. It looks like a treat for the eyes and, based on our recent preview, we’re hoping the gameplay measures up too.
