nDreams’ VR adventure game The Assembly coming to PS4 and Project Morpheus

nDreams, a studio well known for its PlayStation Home content, has announced that it will be bringing its first major virtual reality game, The Assembly, to PlayStation 4, with full support for Sony’s virtual reality headset Project Morpheus.

The Assembly includes lots of the gameplay mechanics that we found worked well in VR. For example, you get to control two different characters at various points, and in VR, you really notice details like their different heights, sounds and voices,” Patrick O’Luanaigh, CEO of nDreams said on the PlayStation Blog. ”Rather than playing as a silent character, we found that playing the role of characters in the story works really well, and helps make The Assembly feel quite different to most other VR projects.”

The game’s story has been written by Tom Jubert, who has also worked on FTL, Penumbra, and The Swapper. It sees players flung into the underground world of The Assembly, “a collection of scientists, academics and engineers who believe morality in society is preventing scientific advancement and are committed to discovering a universal theory of everything, at any cost.”

You can check out a debut trailer for the game above.

Matthew Bennett, Associate Editor
Matthew Bennett finally got his big break with EGM three years ago, following years of volunteer work for various sites. An ability to go many hours without sleep and a quick wit make him ideal for his role as associate editor at EGMNOW.com. He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream. Follow him on Twitter @mattyjb89. Meet the rest of the crew.
