The dark puzzle thriller explores multiple family perspectives.
Among the many trippy things Ubisoft showcased, we saw the return of Transference, developed in collaboration with Elijah Wood’s SpectreVision. A new gameplay trailer which also sees plenty of live action footage was revealed. Transference also has a release date of Fall 2018 for PlayStation VR, Oculus Rift, HTC Vive and traditional platforms like Xbox One, PS4 and PC.
The basic premise involves piecing together the memories of a family in order to “fix their lives”. You’ll explore different perspectives and change the world around you in order to solve the mystery behind the family’s problems. It’s also worth noting that space and time changes depending on the choices made, so the story may change accordingly.
Transference is touted as a dark puzzle thriller with some fairly nightmarish material. The gameplay trailer doesn’t have us too freaked out but we’re definitely intrigued. Expect more information on the same later this year, including a more concrete release date.
