If you were looking forward to Fast Travel Games’ new horror title Wraith: The Oblivion – Afterlife arriving for PlayStation VR this Thursday, VRFocus has some bad news, it has been delayed. Thankfully not by much though, with the launch pushed back to the end of the month.
The studio didn’t give much of a reason why simply saying in a statement that: “The reason for the delay is that Fast Travel Games wants to ensure the game is delivered with the best possible experience on the platform.” Quite vague so maybe the team encountered a bug or some other critical issue?
In any case, you’re going to have to wait a few more weeks to play Wraith: The Oblivion – Afterlife, Fast Travel Games’ first virtual reality (VR) horror and one set in the World of Darkness shared story universe. An atmospheric title that aims to build the tension rather than throwing in loads of jump scares, you play as Ed Millar, a photographer who along with his girlfriend is invited to a seance at the sprawling Barclay Mansion.
Things go awry and you end up dead, stuck between the living world and the afterlife as a Wraith. in this new form you have to explore the mansion and discover the reason for your current predicament. As a Wraith you have supernatural abilities allowing you to move through walls, manipulate objects at a distance and track the movement of other spirits. Because you’re not alone in the mansion, Spectres, spirits of wrath and vengeance roam the corridors, each having their own connection to the house and its owner. These cannot be reasoned with or fought, hide and try not to get caught.
“For those that love slow and tense survival horror Wraith: The Oblivion – Afterlife certainly delivers. Coming in at around eight hours of nail-biting content, Wraith: The Oblivion – Afterlife does the World of Darkness proud,” said VRFocus in its Oculus Quest review.
The PlayStation VR release of Wraith: The Oblivion – Afterlife will now take place on 27th October 2021, retailing for $29.99 USD / £24.99 GBP / €24.99 Eur. VRFocus will continue its coverage of Fast Travel Games, reporting back with its latest announcements.
