Transference is Now a Reality

Both Virtual and Non-Virtual.

If you’re looking for something new and Canadian-made to try out for your virtual reality setup, Ubisoft has a possible solution for you. And if you don’t have a VR rig? That’s fine, too.

Developed by Ubisoft Montreal in a collaboration with Elijah Wood, Daniel Noah, and John C. Waller’s production company, SpectreVision, Transference is described as a “first-person exploration” game which sees you exploring a mysterious house and solving its mysteries. Along the way, you’ll encounter members of a family who each not only have their own story, but their own individual point of view regarding the events which took place there.

“Whether playing in VR or non-VR, players will find themselves in an escape room like situation inside the experiment of a troubled scientist,” explained Producer Kévin Racapé in a press release. “They’ll shift between the three perspectives of family members and attempt to find out the disturbing truth. Transference is a visceral, engaging experience, and we can’t wait for players to enjoy unraveling the mystery in this mind-bending psychological thriller.”

Rated “M” for Mature, Transference is available now for the PlayStation VR, Oculus Rift, and HTC Vive virtual reality platforms, as well as in non-VR forms on the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Windows PC at a suggested retail price of $33.49. There is also a free downloadable demo which serves as a prequel titled “The Walter Test Case” that is currently available for the PlayStation VR and PlayStation 4 (non-VR).
