Virtual Reality gaming, or VR for short, has been around for barely over a year, yet more and more people see it as the future of the industry. While most of the early games for the various VR headsets were devoid of story and were in essence experiments, there were also some more complete games. One of those is FATED: The Silent Oath. FATED, made by Canadian developer Frima. Released last year for PC, FATED has now made its way to PSVR.
Developed with Unreal Engine 4, FATED is a first-person immersive adventure set in the mythical age of Vikings and built specifically for virtual reality. Written by Jill Murray, a writer on Assassin’s Creed, FATED tells the story of a man and his family during Ragnarök – the end times. As he travels with them, he comes across a mix of touching and terrifying events, learning about himself and his loved ones in the process, and taking the players on an emotional rollercoaster that unfolds all around them in total immersion. Essentialy, FATED is utilizing VR to tell a movie length story, where the protagonist is you.
In my opinion, games such as these are a great way to use VR technology. If you feel the same way, you can now buy the game and support it.
FATED: The Silent Oath costs 10 euro and can be found on Steam.
