We’ve had a style of the Blade Runner universe on the Oculus Rift and Gear VR already, however Google and Lenovo’s new Mirage Solo is getting a full on journey recreation based mostly on the sequence.

Blade Runner: Revelations, as the sport is named, was revealed at the moment alongside Lenovo’s new Daydream-based standalone VR headset. Developed by Seismic Studios and printed by Alcon Media Group, the sport is about in 2023 (4 years after the occasions of the unique movie and 26 years earlier than its sequel) and casts you as a seasoned Blade Runner who hunts down self-aware cyborgs often called Replicants.

Using the instruments afforded to you you’ll seek for proof and fend off enemies as you unravel an all-new thriller.

Interestingly, it’s designed to make the most of the headset’s new WorldSense positional monitoring, although a press launch states the sport is ‘finest performed’ this manner. We don’t but know if it would launch on the usual Daydream platform on smartphones however we’ve reached out to Alcon to substantiate.

As talked about above, this isn’t the primary Blade Runner expertise to launch in VR. Shortly earlier than the launch of final yr’s Blade Runner 2049 the Oculus and Turtle Rock Studios launched a brief Gear VR app that put gamers in a high-speed automobile chase, whereas the recently-released Memory Labs used photogrammetry to deliver characters to life inside VR. As cool as these experiences are, we’re excited for a full VR recreation set within the universe. Sadly there’s no launch date for the app but however search for it across the similar time the Mirage Solo launches.
