Fast Travel Games offered a new peek inside its upcoming VR horror game Wraith: The Oblivion – Afterlife and confirmed a spring 2021 release window for the title.
The new trailer shows a look at “The Shadow” — a guide and narrator throughout the game. Check it out in the new teaser:
A post on Facebook’s Oculus blog from Fast Travel Games creative director Erik Odeldahl offers some new details on the story in the game:
Photographer Ed Miller dies during a mysterious seance and becomes a Wraith, one of the Restless Dead who has unfinished business in the land of the living. Suspended between life and death, Wraiths must deal with the challenges of their new existence, and the trappings of their old lives. Playing as Ed Miller, you must enter the Barclay Mansion – an opulent residence filled with Hollywood decadence and occult research – and use your supernatural Wraith abilities to uncover the horrifying truth about your death and the mansion’s dark history.
Miller is trying to unravel a mystery surrounding what happened to his wife after a séance and The Shadow can, “help you achieve this, or complicate things instead.” In December, Fast Travel revealed 5 minutes of development footage offering a look into the game which is set in the World of Darkness universe.
The game is planned for release on all major headsets, including Oculus Quest, with the updates today confirming the title is slated for release sometime this Spring. We’re looking forward to diving deep into this title in the coming months.
