Schell Games announced its upcoming VR horror-puzzler Silent Slayer: Vault of the Vampire is landing on the Quest platform next month.

Update (May 16th, 2024): Silent Slayer is slated to arrive on Quest 2/3/Pro on June 6th, which is now available for pre-order with a 10% discount off the regular $20.

Additionally, the studio tossed out a new mixed reality trailer that shows off just how creepy the game really is, embedded below. In the meanwhile, if you’re looking for a more in-depth look at Silent Slayer, check out our preview where we went hands-on with the first few levels.

Original Article (February 2nd, 2024): Schell Games, also known for its hit spy puzzle VR series I Expect You to Die, explains a little more about what makes the game tick in the new gameplay trailer, seen at the bottom of the article, which features developer commentary.

In short, it’s all about precision, tension, and the danger of a slumbering vampire being awakened at any moment. Set in a spooky mansion, the developers explain that each chapter of the game is broken into two halves: preparation and execution.

At first, you’ll need to take time preparing to deal with the vampire by consulting the book and assembling an increasingly complex ‘Binding Stone’ puzzle. Then you’ll need to figure out how to take down each vampire by using various tools, and eventually finding its heart and performing a binding ritual to unlock the last magical barrier of defense that keeps the vampire safe from your inevitable stake.

But you’ll have to keep quiet as you play what feel like a decidedly spookified version of Operation; fast movements or loud noises will wake the vampire, leading to what promises to be a pretty nasty jump scare.

Silent Slayer: Vault of the Vampire is set to launch on Quest 2/3/Pro this year (see update). While we’re still waiting for a precise release date, you can wishlist the game on the Quest Store here.

    Another game eagerly awaiting OLED screens. I tried 5 nights at Freddy”s and returned it quickly due to the grey background. This game seems to tackle the problem by not being all that dark. The puzzles also seem nice, gets a place on my wishlist!
