The Assembly - PlayStation VR Release Date
Since we refocused all our energies on virtual reality development way back in 2013, we’ve released a number of VR titles - both for mobile, with Gunner and Perfect Beach, as well as for PC, with SkyDIEving and The Assembly.
On October 13th, we’ll be adding a console release to complete our set of supported systems with the PlayStation®VR edition of The Assembly. That’s day one for the new platform - we’re proud to be publishing a launch title!
Given our fondly remembered (not to mention prolific!) history with PlayStation Home, in many ways this particular release of what is our first major title for high-end VR headsets feels like coming home.
101 for PS4 Players
Regular readers will no doubt be intimately familiar with The Assembly’s background, but here’s a bite-sized introduction for any PS VR players eager to hear what it’s all about.
The Assembly is an immersive, interactive story in first-person VR, created for mature audiences and inspired by real-world anxieties. 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 you to discover by taking on the role of two different protagonists, who both have the chance to shake the foundations of this mysterious organisation.
You’ll be able to find The Assembly on the PlayStation store for $29.99 / €24.99 / £19.99.
