As the generation of virtual reality dawns, many exciting new titles are being announced and one of them just announced their release; the game in reference is a highly anticipated VR adventure elegantly titled: The Assembly.
According to developer nDreams, we should expect to see this first-person interactive story in the summer of 2016, as well as a later release for the Playstation VR. We can also look forward to experiencing this game on the 3 major VR platforms that are currently awaiting release (HTC Vive, Oculus Rift, and Playstation VR).
The Assembly is currently described as being “The perfect introduction to VR”, which is exactly what players want and need as a way to usher the masses into this new age of gaming. If you watch the trailer it is easy to see why so many are buzzing in anticipation for this new title. The website fleshes the experience out further by stating: “The Assembly is an immersive, interactive story in VR where there are two sides to everything. An experience where perspectives shift, the right choice is never clear, and a question is always left open: When does the end justify the means?”
The website details that the story of The Assembly centers around a mysterious organization that has been conducting immoral experiments free of constraints from the government due to how hidden from the public eye it is, possibly even going as far as to sacrifice everything to carry on with its mission. The website further explains the plotline by stating the role’s of the protagonists. According to the website, “A chain of events threatens to expose The Assembly, two individuals – each with their own perspectives and motivations – are offered a chance to shape the future. For better or worse, the impossible choices they face will transform not just their own lives, but that of whole nations.” The implied gravity of the situations and decisions in the game further detail the intense world that the player will exist in through the two protagonists.
This game is projected to be a dream for fans of thriller titles with shifting narratives, utilizing the ability to be as fully immersed as currently possible in a story to create the ultimate VR experience.
