Oculus Studios’ Executive Producer on Asgard’s Wrath, Mike Doran, announced that Sanzaru Games are working on adding subtitles to their VR RPG action-adventure game Asgard’s Wrath after hearing community feedback.
Doran confirmed on Reddit that subtitles for multiple languages will be added into the game. However, the process is “just starting” and so he also warned that it will likely be a number of months before they become available in the game. “It’s many weeks [sic] worth of work and QA to verify text across the entire game.”
The exact list of supported languages has not been decided, but Doran promised to share the list as soon as they can. He prompted readers to spread the information across non-English forums as well, so that users waiting on subtitle support for their language are aware that the feature is being worked on.
Doran is also working as a producer on other Oculus Studios titles such as Medal of Honor and Vader Immortal, and said that the team wants to be more consistent overall when in comes to adding subtitles in their games. This is great news from an accessibility standpoint, ensuring that all of these fantastic games are available to as many people as possible.
Asgard’s Wrath launched earlier this month and David was suitably impressed in his review, naming it “VR’s best and most ambitious game yet.” We also invited the Creative Director of Asgard’s Wrath, Mat Kraemer, onto Episode 3 of our podcast, The VR Download, last week. Unlike traditional podcasts, The VR Download is broadcast from a virtual reality studio – you can check out the episode with Mat here.
