Myst developer Cyan has been keen to bring its latest engrossing adventure, Obduction, to as many VR headsets as possible, and now it’s coming to a new VR platform too.
Obduction will be one of the first games to support VR when it releases on Apple’s new iMac Pro, the company recently announced on Twitter. At yesterday’s WWDC17 conference Apple announced that the latest entry to its Mac family would come fully equipped to support SteamVR and compatible headsets like the HTC Vive. That’s thanks to AMD’s Radeon Vega GPU housed inside the machine.

Obduction already supports the HTC Vive on PC, so don’t expect any major differences between those two versions. There’s no word yet on when the Mac version of the game will be releasing, though the iMac Pro is due to launch in December for $4,999. The machine is intended for professional use but you’ll be able to play VR content too.
If you’re planning on picking up the new Mac then you can’t go wrong with Obduction. “While Obduction does have some issues, the fault for them rests less on Cyan as a studio, and more on VR as a new medium that still has room to grow,” we wrote in our review last year. “What can be attributed to these game makers, however, is an amazing world, clever puzzles, a fascinating story, satisfying gameplay, and a title that can stand next to its elder brothers Myst and Riven with pride.”
The game’s also planned for launch on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation VR (PS VR) in the near future.
