HBO, Warner Bros., and Survios today released a new VR game set in the wild (and often terrifying) android-filled universe of Westworld.
Called Westworld Awakening, the game takes place during the events of the TV series’ season two, offering up what the studios call a narrative-driven, stealth exploration experience played from the perspective of Kate, a newly self-aware android ‘host’.
Set in the heart of in the Mesa facility’s laboratories and offices, which the studios bill as a “dangerous underworld where no one and nothing is what it seems,” players are pitted against puzzles, and a dark game of manipulating the world (and other hosts) around you by using the seemingly godlike powers of the Quality Assurance tablet.
Just like in the show, Hank, the black-hatted serial killer, is always in close pursuit, forcing you to confront Westworld’s secrets as you try to escape with your artificially intelligent hide intact.
Westworld Awakening was published by HBO and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, and was developed in-house by Survios, the VR studio known for a string of successful VR titles including Raw Data (2017), Creed: Rise to Glory (2019), Sprint Vector (2018) and the upcoming titles Battlewake and The Walking Dead Onslaught.
