Developer studio Turtle Rock Studios (also known for Face Your Fears) unveils its new VR action adventure Journey of the Gods for Oculus Rift S and Oculus Quest. The VR title puts players in the role of a human being with divine abilities within a fantastic world to fight vicious Moon Beasts and prevent a pending apocalypse triggered by the black moon.
The VR title combines the gameplay of an action adventure with RPG and puzzle elements. So you go in the near and long-range combat against a variety of creatures by using sword and shield or a one-handed crossbow. Of course, more weapons should be available as well.
As you travel through the sprawling land, you will also find numerous items that you can use to enhance your character. So you can unlock new skills or expand existing skills. These include not only fighting skills but also magic. You can also interact with an owl-like companion who will guide you along the way.
In addition to combat situations, your problem solving ability is also in demand, because in various dungeons and locations around the world, it is important to solve various puzzles in order to move forward.
An exact release date has not yet been announced. Journey of the Gods will be released for Oculus Rift S (as well as Oculus Rift) and for Oculus Quest.
