It’s almost tradition that studios will release some sort of spooky theme for their videogames around Halloween but what do you do if your game is already scary? Well, in the case of Fallen Planet Studios’ horror title AFFECTED: The Manor it’s all about giving the experience a revamp whilst bringing all its DLC together in one easy to manage package.
Called AFFECTED: The Manor – Complete Edition, VRFocus first reported on this new version at the end of 2020, with the initial expectation it was going to arrive in Q1 2021. Now its set to arrive next week, with PlayStation VR owners seeing the biggest changes. Fallen Planet Studios says the PlayStation VR edition gets “innumerable updates and improvements” with higher polygon models and a completely redesigned path system for starters.
While PC VR and Oculus Quest owners of AFFECTED: The Manor have previously been treated to extras like spooky speed run mode The Gauntlet and the frightening The Darkness mode, both are now coming to PlayStation VR for the first time. On top of all of that, no matter which platform you play AFFECTED: The Manor – Complete Edition on, it’ll now feature support for 10 languages, single-handed gameplay and a skin tone shader.
So is there anything special coming to the Oculus Quest and PC VR versions you ask? Most definitely. As a Halloween treat there’s a hidden secret: the Architect’s Room. You’ll need to be observant whilst exploring the manor to find the room: “inside will be all manner of secrets – both here in the present and for the future,” the studio notes.
“Everyone at Fallen Planet Studios is very happy to be bringing AFFECTED: The Manor – Complete Edition to the entire VR community,” said Alex Moretti, CEO Fallen Planet Studios in a statement. “This package is the culmination of more than half-a-decade’s work in creating VR horror experiences, and we can’t wait to see players across all VR platforms experience the ultimate virtual haunted house this Halloween!”
For PlayStation VR, AFFECTED: The Manor – Complete Edition will be available from 28th October 2021, priced at $9.99 USD / €9.99 EUR / £7.99 GBP, with a 20% launch discount for PlayStation Plus members. If you already own the videogame then it’s a free update. The PC VR version also arrives on the same date whilst the Oculus Quest version lands slightly sooner, on 25th October.
