Incuvo’s Green Hell VR for Oculus Quest and PC VR headsets is looking promising from all the screenshots the studio has released so far. Originally slated for Q3 2021 for the PC edition with the Oculus Quest version arriving in Q4, Incuvo has confirmed this week that both have been delayed until Q1 2022.
The studio made the announcement over on its Discord channel, saying: “Production of Green Hell VR is right on schedule, but we’ve decided to test and polish the mechanics even further. Our team is very passionate about this project, and we all want you to have the best experience possible once Green Hell VR appears on Oculus and SteamVR,” writes the team. ” This decision gives us a few additional months which allow us to work on the final form of Green Hell VR, so the immersion and environment are extraordinary.”
While you’re going to have to wait a little bit longer there’s some good news. The first is that both versions will arrive at the same time. The other is the confirmation that Incuvo is now actively working on a co-op mode for Green Hell VR. “This feature will most likely be available as an update, after the initial release,” the announcement notes.
If you’ve been following VRFocus’ coverage of Green Hell VR then you’ll know the title is a virtual reality (VR) port of Creepy Jar’s 2019 survival adventure Green Hell which has been very well received on Steam. The addition of co-op brings Green Hell VR more in line with its flatscreen cousin. But as the studio previously confirmed, don’t expect any sort of cross-play between the VR and non-VR versions, as they’re too different.
Green Hell VR will drop VR players into the Amazon rainforest, challenging them to survive in the harsh jungle environment on their own. Well, almost. They’ll start without any food or equipment, having to learn how to build shelters, make tools, and craft weapons in order to hunt and defend themselves from the local residents. Crocodiles, leopards, and less than friendly natives are just some of the hostiles players will encounter as they forage for food and acquire new resources.
With the new release window now set as more details arrive VRFocus will keep you updated.
