The first gameplay trailer for Fast Travel Games’ Wraith: The Oblivion – Afterlife is here, and it makes great use of mixed reality.
We first showcased Wraith at the Upload VR Showcase: Summer Edition back in June. The game is set in the World of Darkness universe and promises a full-on VR horror experience. This trailer certainly delivers on that aspect; Fast Travel teamed up with LIV and Splitverse to deliver a stunning mixed reality angle that really captures what being in the game might actually feel like. It’s one of the best integrations of MR in a trailer we’ve seen – check it out below.

It helps that the game itself continues to look promising. Wraith takes place in Barclay Mansion where the player, themselves cast as a recently-deceased Wraith, is stalked by terrifying Spectres. As you can see in the footage, stealth will play a huge element in the game, with the player hiding from enemies in closets and trying to sneak past undetected.
But the footage also gives us our first look at some of the powers you’ll wield as a Wraith. This includes Wraithgrasp, which allows you to grab objects from a distance, manipulate them and even change the environment around them. Also, Sharpened Sense will help you track movement of spirits, and Insubstantiality lets you walk through walls.
Along with the trailer’s release, Fast Travel finally confirmed that Wraith is coming to pretty much every VR headset there is — Quest, Rift, Vive, Index and PSVR — in early 2021. We’ll have more on the game later this week, so check back soon. What do you make of the Wraith: The Oblivion gameplay trailer? Let us know in the comments below!
