We’re proud to announce a new World of Darkness project on behalf of the Fast Travel Games: a VR horror game Wraith: The Oblivion – Afterlife, coming to all major VR platforms. Sharing the same universe as Vampire: The Masquerade and Werewolf: The Apocalypse, Afterlife will let players experience the World of Darkness in virtual reality for the first time ever. It is also the first video game created based on Wraith: The Oblivion. Set in the modern Barclay Mansion, players will take the perspective of a Wraith and unravel the many mysteries that await beyond the Shroud.
Erik Odeldahl, Creative Director at Fast Travel Games explains: “I am a massive fan of games like Amnesia: The Dark Descent and Alien: Isolation, and have always felt that the kind of narrative-driven, exploration-focused horror these titles deliver would be perfect for VR.” He continues: “To make such a game in the World of Darkness setting, specifically the rich and mystical world of Wraith: The Oblivion, is really a dream come true for me, and I cannot wait to share more details about it!”
Sean Greaney, Brand Manager for World of Darkness at Paradox Interactive, adds: “Playing games in the World of Darkness story universe, whether it’s tabletop, traditional video game, or VR, lets us experience a dark, urban fantasy layered over our modern world. By assuming the perspective of a monster, we can gain a better understanding of what it truly means to be human. We’re excited to be taking our first steps from the Skinlands toward Stygia in World of Darkness version 5 in such an innovative and appropriate medium. Death is only the beginning in Wraith: The Oblivion…”
Afterlife will be fully revealed with a gameplay trailer during Gamescom Now which starts on August 27.
