GDC 2019: Journey Of The Gods Is Left 4 Dead Dev’s New VR Adventure For Quest/Rift S
Turtle Rock Studios, the developer best known for its work on Left 4 Dead, today announced its new VR game, Journey of the Gods.
As teased ahead of GDC this week, Journey of the Gods is an action-adventure RPG. In the game, you go in search of the power of ancient gods, which will allow you to fight back evil. Oculus VP of Product Nate Mitchell previously said the game reminded him of Nintendo’s The Legend of Zelda series. We can see why; you’ll fight monsters using a mix of sword and shield as well as crossbow combat. There will also be plenty of puzzles to test players with.
We’ll have full impressions of the game for you later on, but for now, you can enjoy these GIFs. They showcase some hallmarks of adventure gaming; lava-filled dungeons, magic powers and ancient weaponry. They also introduce us to your little companion, an owl that can take you between missions.
Journey of the Gods is coming to Oculus Quest and Oculus Rift S. The game will be a launch title for Quest when it arrives this spring, but it’s not clear when it will hit PC VR.
This isn’t Turtle Rock Studios’ first brush with VR. The studio is behind Face Your Fears, one of the most successful applications on Gear VR and Oculus Go. In fact, the team is also working on a sequel for Oculus Quest too. Elsewhere the team also worked on a Blade Runner VR game and a gorgeous RPG named The Well.
