Ubisoft have revealed Werewolves Within, a game of social deduction that’s coming to all major VR platforms this Autumn. You can check out the reveal trailer below:
“Developed by Red Storm Entertainment, a Ubisoft Studio, in collaboration with Ubisoft Barcelona, Werewolves Within transports players to the medieval village of Gallowston, where they must uncover the werewolves that have been terrorising the townsfolk. Designed as an online multiplayer experience for five to eight people, players assume randomly assigned roles at the beginning of each game, some of which grant special abilities that will help players deduce who is a werewolf in disguise. To keep the experience dynamic, games are quick, with roles changing each time. One round you could be a villager, pleading your case for innocence, and the next round you could be a werewolf, lying your way to victory.
With the game’s matchmaking features, players can create Private Matches with friends or be grouped in a Quick Match with friends and other gamers looking to play. Using Red Storm’s positional tracking technology and animations based on voice inflection analysis, players’ real-life actions and body language will be reflected through their VR character in-game.”
Man, this sounds awesome. I remember playing something similar on an online forum awhile ago – that was great fun so with VR integration I think it’s going to be a blast. It’s great to see that Ubisoft are committing themselves to the VR platform with titles like Werewolves Within and Eagle Flight coming in the future.
Werewolves Within is coming to all major VR platforms sometime during Autumn 2016.
