Strange Company has announced that its Dark Souls-inspired VR game, Left-Hand Path, will launch on November 10th. You’ll be able to play on HTC Vive as well as Oculus Rift with Touch.
What is Left Hand Path?
If you’re a fan of Dark Souls and having the “pants scared off you” — though in VR that’s kind of creepy –, this is the game for you. It features over 15 hours of game play in “room-scale VR”. You’ll be exploring a magical landscape while trying to learn arcane gestures that allow you to cast spells to kill demons.
During the game, you’ll wake up in a cursed castle packed with unknown creatures. You’ve got a knack for the arcane and a bent for exploration. Handy, since you have to find and fight your way out.
You’ll need to duck, dodge and out-maneuver your opponents all on the run casting magic. You’ll need to master spells including throwing acid missiles or raining fire from the sky. While you begin rather weak, you’ll grow in power as you explore. The more you do, the more you’re likely to uncover.
