Earlier this year, nDreams released its latest title, The Assembly, on the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift, as well as a non-VR version for PC. Next week, the game will make its way to PlayStation VR (PSVR).
The game puts you in the perspectives of Drs. Cal Pearson and Madeline Stone, both of whom are in a scientific facility, appropriately called "The Assembly." With these two characters, you’ll find out more about what occurs in the massive building complex by solving puzzles and exploring the area. In order to progress the story, you’ll also have to make some choices that will test your moral beliefs.
With the game on the HTC Vive and PSVR, you would think that The Assembly utilizes the controllers that come with both HMDs. However, the game supports a gamepad (this includes the DualShock 4 controller for the PSVR variant) as well as a keyboard and mouse on PC. As our own Kevin Carbotte mentioned, the game uses multiple locomotive mechanics, such as a variation on Cloudhead Games’ Blink and comfort mode in addition to short, instantaneous movements with the gamepad, in order to create an experience free of nausea.
The Assembly arrives on the PlayStation Store on October 13, which is the launch day for PSVR. It will cost $29.99.
