After a long wait, the PlayStation VR (PSVR) support for the PS4 version of Cyan’s Obduction is finally arriving this week.
A free patch for the game will launch on 8th May (that’s tomorrow!) implementing PSVR. It’s been a long-time coming; the PS4 version of Obduction launched all the way back in mid-2017, but its promised VR support was delayed shortly before that. Fans have waited patiently for an update on its progress ever since.
“We couldn’t be happier to have this out the door, and we couldn’t have pulled it off without our partners at Legendary,” Cyan CEO Rand Miller said on the PlayStation Blog. “Of course it’s the full version of Obduction with all the beauty and intrigue of its alien worlds, including the bonus content that’s on the PlayStation version. And Obduction is one of the larger PS VR experiences, so get ready to explore some crazy-cool spaces for a while.”
Cyan is, of course, the developer of classic 1993 adventure game, Myst, and is very much a spiritual successor to it. The game has been available on PC VR headsets for some time now and is best known for its stunning visuals and amazing worlds. We called the game a ‘cinematic marvel’ in our 8/10 review.
Elsewhere, Cyan is busy developing its next VR-compatible game, Firmament, though that’s no word yet on if this one will come to PSVR.
