The Assembly - out on Rift & Vive this summer
Today sees us take to the floor of EGX Rezzed for the first day of the show. It’s a chance for us to show off the latest playable demo of The Assembly and we’re eager to exhibit some of the game’s new features.
Take a look at our trailer for the game for a glimpse into the secret world of The Assembly:
The Assembly is our immersive, interactive story in first-person VR where there are two sides to everything. Built from the ground up as a perfect introduction to virtual reality, The Assembly offers an experience where perspectives shift, the truth is never clear, and a question is always left open: When does the end justify the means?
The game centres around the eponymous Assembly, an enigmatic collective that has hidden itself from the world so as to conduct its experiments outside the constraints of government scrutiny and society’s morals. But what secrets is it hiding? What will it sacrifice in the name of progress? That’s for players to uncover by taking on the role of two different protagonists, who both have the chance to shake the foundations of this mysterious organisation.
If you’re at EGX Rezzed this week, you can win one of five free copies of the game on the VR platform of your choice by tweeting a photo of yourself from our booth in East Mall 4, including the hashtags #TheAssemblyVR and #EGXRezzed. For each retweet of your photo, you’ll gain an extra entry into the prize draw. For full terms and conditions, visit www.ndreams.com/egxcontest.
On Friday (8th April) at 4 PM, our Comms Manager George Kelion and Senior Designer Jackie Tetley will be taking part in a VR-themed panel discussion for EGX Rezzed, along with Katie Goode from Triangular Pixels and Steve Bristow from Rebellion. The session is titled ‘What will VR games be like?’ and takes places in the Great Gallery.
There’s a lot yet to discover, and we’ll have more to share in the run-up to the game’s launch. In the meantime, keep an eye on The Assembly’s Facebook page, Pinterest board and YouTube playlist for the latest updates.
