You won’t have long to play all of Ubisoft Montreal and SpectreVision’s new VR title, Transference, but you can get a taste of it from today.
The game, which will launch on September 18th, just got a free demo on PS4’s PlayStation Store with support for the PSVR headsets.
Unlike most demos, this download is actually a prequel to the main game, taking place several years before it. In it, you explore the memories of someone that suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), digitally recreating as part of an unorthodox new research case. You’ll need to solve clues and explore your surroundings in order to unlock the mysteries that lie within.
Transference was announced at E3 2017 and caught our attention thanks to its developers, which include The Lord of the Rings’ Elijah Wood. It uses an intriguing mix of fully CG elements as well as live-action video. We’ve been hands-on with it a few times and always come away impressed.
Sadly the demo is exclusive to PS4, so Rift and Vive owners will have to wait until full release. The game can also be played without a VR headset, though, so if you don’t own the headset but still have a PS4 you can still try it out.
