Ubisoft Reveals Werewolves Within VR Title with Trailer and Screens

Ubisoft has just revealed a new VR title that it has been working on called Werewolves Within with a new trailer and some screenshots.

The game is one of the first multiplayer VR experiences created, and it aims to, “capture(s) the essence and competitive spirit of playing live around a table with friends.” Think of it as table-top gaming with a pair of VR goggles strapped to your face.

The official press release explains more on what Werewolves Within is all about:

“Developed by Red Storm Entertainment, a Ubisoft Studio, in collaboration with Ubisoft Barcelona, Werewolves Within transports players to the medieval village of Gallowston, where they must uncover the werewolves that have been terrorizing the townsfolk. Designed as an online multiplayer experience for five to eight people, players assume randomly assigned roles at the beginning of each game, some of which grant special abilities that will help players deduce who is a werewolf in disguise. To keep the experience dynamic, games are quick, with roles changing each time. One round you could be a villager, pleading your case for innocence, and the next round you could be a werewolf, lying your way to a win.

With the game’s matchmaking features, players can create Private Matches with friends or be grouped in a Quick Match with friends and other gamers looking to play. Using voice detection, Red Storm’s positional tracking technology and animations based on voice inflection analysis, players’ real-life actions and body language will be reflected through their VR character in-game.”

The title is set to hit in 2016 for various VR platforms. Head on up above to check out the trailer, and down below to see the screenshots.
