Jurassic World Aftermath Launches On Oculus Quest Tomorrow
Jurassic World Aftermath asks you to traverse Isla Nublar to find some research materials. Unfortunately, VR Velociraptors are on your tail.
We first heard about Jurassic World Aftermath back in September. The VR title puts you in the shoes of someone who has just crashed onto Isla Nublar. Of course, that means you’re dealing with deadly Velociraptors as you move about the island. The vicious creatures stand between and the research materials you’re seeking. Using your wits, you’ll have to find a way past them. And the best news? It’s out tomorrow. Give the launch trailer a watch below.
Of course, the first thing you notice about Jurassic World Aftermath is the visuals. This does not look like the dinosaur movies you see on the big screen. Instead, the team has gone with a stylish, cell-shaded look. It’s a bit jarring at first, but it’s quickly grown on me. At the very least, it’ll be much less terrifying when those raptors inevitably catch me and start eating my insides.
While I’m a bit hesitant to get too excited about this title, it’s hard to deny that the setting has a ton of potential in VR. Of course, it won’t be as stunning to see cell-shaded dinos up close as it would be if they were lifelike. However, if they’re able to capture that scale, this could be really cool. Plus, a horror game in the vein of Alien: Isolation seems like a prime candidate for VR.
If that wasn’t enough, the trailer ends with a voice line from Jeff Goldblum. In their write-up on the new game, Mashable confirmed that both Goldblum and B.D. Wong recorded new voice lines for the game. Having those two involved is a major get.
Jurassic World Aftermath comes to an Oculus Quest near you on December 17.
