Based on the Voltron: Legendary Defender series from Netflix, DreamWorks is launching a single-player game coming to PSVR, HTC Vive, and Oculus Rift on September 26th. Called Voltron VR Chronices, the game promises to deliver an immersive Voltron narrative alongside the chance to pilot the Blue Lion, stand on the bridge of the Castle Ship, and solve interactive puzzles and challenges.
Developed by Digital Domain Interactive, Voltron VR Chronicles puts you in the shoes of Lance, the blue Paladin of Voltron, giving you the duty to pilot the Blue Lion in your battle against the Zarkon’s forces.
According to a PlayStation blogpost, the game is only the first episode in a multi-episode VR series and will be presented both as passive storytelling (i.e. cinematic cutscenes) and “moments of interactivity where the user takes control of Lance’s actions.” The interactive moments feature puzzles, piloting missions, and combat missions where you battle Galra forces with the series’ fantastical sci-fi weapons.
The TV show’s voice actors will also be voicing their respective characters in the show. Showrunners from Voltron: Legendary Defender also collaborated with Digital Domain to make sure the game’s universe was accurate in every way possible.
Pre-orders are already available for PSVR at the 20 percent discounted price of $12. The regular price on all platforms is $15.
