One man’s quest to save his family from the destruction of the gods comes to the Rift April 28th.
Back in 2015 we were fortunate enough to get some hands-on time with an early build of FATED: The Silent Oath and came away impressed by its characters, animation and atmosphere. Now the first trailer for the game has been released alongside a launch date for the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive: April 28th.
Created using the Unreal Engine 4, FATED is a first-person adventure game set in the mythical age of the Vikings, and follows the exile of a family as they escape the wrath of the gods. Players take on the role of the father character, and experience the world of FATED through his eyes as he attempts to protect his family. Expect to interact with family members (in particular his daughter who is animated and voiced with wonderful attention to detail), solve puzzles and watch the world go by. There are no controls to learn, instead the game uses positional-tracking to let players make choices by moving their head. It feels natural and intuitive, and makes the world of FATED feel more real and alive.
You’ll be able to experience the game for yourself when it’s released for the Oculus Rift at the end of this month. Hopefully we’ll bring you a full review shortly before then. For now, enjoy the trailer above and our hands-on from last year.
