The studios haven’t mentioned exactly when Wanderer will arrive, saying that it will release sometime “later this year.” The developers promise however that news of a release date is “not far away.”
“The last year has been a pretty tricky one. Navigating Covid-19 and its effects while maintaining a healthy and productive environment and developing a unique game for VR has meant we’re running a bit behind on our schedule,” the studios say.
The gameplay video is the first of a two-part series which explores the main character’s Asher’s trusty companion, Samuel the Watch.
“It’s all about this magnificent and multi-talented timepiece, which is more than just a smart accessory, as we take a deep dive into the watch’s features and just how it can help you on your journey through time,” the studios say.
Additionally, the team behind Wanderer have partnered with publisher Perp Games to bring a Wanderer PlayStation VR physical edition to retail.
