After a long wait, publisher 1C Company announced last month that surreal virtual reality (VR) supported puzzle-adventure title Unknown Fate would be arriving on Steam for HTC Vive in September. Well it seems that time has caught up and the day is at hand for Unknown Fate to become known.
At launch Unknown Fate will only fully support the HTC Vive and non-VR PC, but support for the Oculus Rift along with eye-tracking support is due in a post-release patch.
Unknown Fate is described as a highly story-driven first-person adventure where players will need to defeat enemies and solve puzzles in order to progress. Players will take on the role of a man called Richard, who finds himself drawn into a surreal universe which contains strange characters, odd artefacts and scenes resembling twisted versions of Richard’s own life.
Players will be able to explore the strange world of Unknown Fate using either gamepad, tracked motion controllers or keyboard and mouse, and can choose either an immersive VR experience or traditional PC as the mystery unravels before them, with the layer guiding Richard as he struggles to remember the details of his life.
“Players can now enter the strangely fascinating world of Unknown Fate to experience a mind-altering adventure playable in both VR and non-VR modes,” said Nikolay Baryshnikov, VP of 1C Company, “The early response has been incredible, and the game is only getting better with support for Oculus Rift and VR eye tracking functionality coming after launch.”
The title is out now on Steam for HTC Vive and non-VR PC. There is a 15% launch discount currently available, putting the price at $12.75 (USD) compared to the usual price of $14.99. Further information and updates can be found on the Steam Store page.
