The long-awaited PSVR port of Xing: The Land Beyond is nearly here.
Developer White Lotus Interactive announced today that the game will launch on Sony’s headset on February 12th. Xing is a first-person adventure game in which you explore a peaceful, idyllic island. The world around you is filled with puzzles to complete and story to unearth, though it’s also just a nice game to exist inside of.
The game arrives on PS4 with optional PSVR support. It can be played with either DualShock 4 or two Move controllers. There’s also an exclusive level of Sony fans named Agnirok. It features new puzzles and story elements.
For White Lotus, the PSVR version of Xing has been a long time coming. The game began development in 2012, raising $30,100 via a Kickstarter campaign in 2013. At the time, White Lotus speculated the game would be out later that year. The PC VR version of the game, however, didn’t arrive until last 2017. Nearly a year and a half on and we’re finally at the console release.
It’s no secret that the studio is pinning a lot of hopes upon this release, too. Just over a year ago now the team revealed Xing had sold poorly on PC. The team has spent the past year pouring its efforts into the console version.
“It is an understatement to say development on Xing has been an incredible journey for us, and knowing that our adventure is finally coming to a head fills us with emotion,” the team’s Koriel Kruer wrote in a PlayStation Blog post announcing the news. We’re not sure what’s next for the team following the game’s launch.
