Croteam’s The Talos Principle (2014) is making its way to headsets soon in a separate VR version, supporting HTC Vive and Oculus Rift. The studio now has a Steam page, including an October 17th launch date. And if you already own the PC version of the game? Croteam has decided to sweeten the deal with the promise of a discount to owners of the flat screen version.
After one Steam user mistakenly purchased the PC version of the game, which is separate from the standalone VR title, Croteam responded with the promise of an “appropriate discount” for anyone who already owned the flat version.
It’s uncertain at this time just how much previous owners will save as they make the jump into the VR version.
We got a chance to go head-first into Talos VR at this year’s Gamescom, and I walked away feeling that, although it’s decidedly a slower, more plodding experience in comparison to the flat screen version, that the game played remarkably well in VR, almost as if the game had finally come home to where it belonged.
