E3 2018: Ubisoft Shows Trailer For New VR Game Transference

During last year’s E3, Ubisoft announced that they have partnered with Eijiah Woods’ Spectrevision development company to produce a brand new virtual reality game called Transference. This year, they revealed a brand-new trailer for the game.

In addition to virtual reality, the game is also being developed for traditional consoles as well. The game was originally touted for Spring 2018; however, as you could imagine, that time has come and gone and the game was nowhere to be found. 

Transference is described as a psychological thriller with the tagline “Escape a Corrupted Mind.” In Transference, you project yourself into a narrative experience that combines Hollywood with gaming. You enter a corrupted digital simulation created by a brilliant but troubled scientist named Raymond Hayes. The world is built upon the collective brain data of Raymond Hayes, his wife Katherine, and his son Benjamin. Your goal is to recover a fragmented family as you shift back and forth between each individual’s perspective and piece together the mystery of their lives. 

Everything is open to your own interpretation in this game. You are the one driving the narrative, searching for clues, and solving the mystery. 

Transference will be available on Playstation VR, Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, Playstation 4, Xbox One, and PC. It is scheduled for a release in Fall 2018.
