Just in time for Halloween, The Exorcist franchise is getting an episodic VR horror adventure, with the first two chapters due in October. Called The Exorcist: Legion VR, the experience promises to let you finally take part in what the creators call “a variety of increasingly disturbing exorcisms” across a five-chapter narrative.
Created by Wolf & Wood, the minds behind A Chair In A Room: Greenwater, and based on the works of William Peter Blatty, The Exorcist: Legion VR takes you around the globe as you discover multiple tools to use in your encounters with ancient supernatural entities.
Developed especially for VR, the experience features support for motion controllers, including blink teleportation and “free roam” locomotion options.
The creators say run-time for each chapter will vary, with the average session running approximately 20-25 minutes.
There aren’t any specific launch dates yet, but the studio maintains that chapters will come out monthly, with the first two coming before Halloween.
