1C Company has announced that it will be launching the story-driven action PC adventure with VR support, Unknown Fate, on September 6th. At launch, the game supports PC and HTC VIVE gameplay, with Oculus Rift support coming soon via update.
Additionally, the company announced it is working with Tobii, the world leader in eye tracking, to add sophisticated eye tracking features for a more immersive experience in both VR and non-VR modes, with eye tracking already implemented in non-VR mode.
Nikolay Baryshnikov, VP of 1C Company, said:
“Players will be able to embark on an amazing and immersive journey in Unknown Fate when it launches next week on Steam for PC with HTC VIVE VR support. There was tremendous excitement among players at gamescom, and we’re thrilled to be adding eye tracking support via Tobii.”
Unknown Fate is described as a highly story-driven first-person adventure with many puzzles to solve and enemies to beat. Players will become Richard, who suddenly passes from the real world into a surreal universe. There, he will encounter strange characters, unfamiliar artifacts and scenes resembling Richard’s former life, of which he has lost all memory. Yet he feels the world he has come to inhabit is strange and distant; he somehow knows this is not where he belongs. He feels the urge to find out more about this surreal universe and the creatures inhabiting it, to find a way back to his real self and the life he cannot fully recall.
Here are the game’s key features:
- Highly Story-Driven: Explore a strange and surreal world as Richard seeks to find his way back to reality
- Mind-Twisting Puzzles: Manipulate objects to uncover clues and find a way through
- Definitively Designed for VR: Experience reality and unreality in a truly immersive fashion
- Immersive Eye Tracking: Chart a trail to the answers you seek via object highlighting and environmental event triggers in non-VR mode at launch with Tobii support also coming for VR
- Full Controller Support: Tracked controllers, gamepad, and keyboard/mouse are all supported
