‘Westworld’ VR Game Now Available on PC VR Headsets, Launch Trailer Here

16

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.

Westworld Awakening is now available on Steam (Vive, Rift, Index), the Oculus Store (Rift), and Viveport (Vive, Rift, Index) for $30.

  • JesuSaveSouls

    Looks like a definite buy…in the description for the game it states nudity and strong sexual themes which I have to avoid.The players are replying it has no nudity.

    How long is it?

  • Jarilo

    How lost will I be if I have never seen the show ?

    • aasd

      even if you’ve seen the show, lots of things are confusing. its like one big puzzle

      • Jarilo

        Just finished it, you are right but I understood it more or less despite never having seen the show and think it’s one of the best things to hit VR in a while. It was incredibly immersive.

  • Karolis Polikša

    Does not support index knuckles :(

    • Jarilo

      I played it using the Knuckles anyway and it was fine. Just no finger tracking. Standard default profile has Squeeze set to pick up and interact on the grips, I’ve uploaded a profile that has it set to touching the grips as well which worked better for me.

      • Karolis Polikša

        Maybe it was a glitch. I had no buttons, only tracking.

        • Jarilo

          That doesn’t sound right. I was able to finish the game using them and there are videos online of people playing it on the Index kit.

  • Jarilo

    Just finished it, I was impressed. Survios did an incredible job.
