Vertigo Games has announced that The 7th Guest VR will launch on PlayStation VR2, Quest, and Steam PC VR on October 19.
The team also released a new trailer for the game today that you can view below and you can learn more about it below as well.
The 7th Guest VR is a virtual-reality reimagining of the interactive mystery puzzle adventure that helped revolutionize PC gaming.
As Bill Gates astutely put it, The 7th Guest marked “the new standard in interactive entertainment” back when the original game launched in the mid-90s. Developed by Trilobyte and Virgin Interactive Entertainment, The 7th Guest was a pioneer in leveraging CD-ROM technology. The game garnered millions of fans globally due to its impressive pre-rendered 3D graphics, mature narrative, and use of live-action video clips to enhance its storytelling.
Now, the beloved dark mystery returns, entirely reimagined for virtual reality gameplay and featuring additional enhancements to create the definitive way to experience The 7th Guest.
Through innovative virtual reality gameplay and the interpolation of live-action, volumetric storytelling, The 7th Guest VR invites players into a grandiose mansion filled with cryptic secrets and challenging puzzles, as they attempt to unravel the mystery surrounding the estate’s sinister owner, the toymaker Henry Stauf.
Six guests have been welcomed to the foreboding mansion. But something sinister is at play. The wealthy recluse and toymaker, Henry Stauf, hides in the shadows, and there is a dark power here, shrouded in mysteries. Who is the 7th Guest? What does Henry want with them? And who will live to tell the tale?
As you explore the eerie mansion, the puzzles become increasingly challenging, and there are dangers lurking around every corner, with every shadow, creak, and flicker of light adding to the haunting tension.
Unlock new rooms and uncover hidden secrets, all while trying to keep your wits about you against the eerie horrors. The 7th Guest VR is the ultimate adventure for fans of mystery-puzzle games and those seeking a new and terrifying VR experience.
