Yesterday, UK-based developer Secret Sorcery announced that former PlayStation VR exclusive game, Tethered, is hitting PC via Oculus Rift and HTC Vive on February 27, 2017.

According to the developers, not only is it coming to the above mentioned platforms, but it will feature “an incredible new way to interact with the Peeps and move around the lush and beautifully hand-painted environments.”

Since the game’s launch back in October of last year, Secret Sorcery has been hard at work developing a range of motion controller interactions that allow players to physically use their hands in the world with support for Oculus Touch, PlayStation Move controllers, and HTC Vive.

Additionally, the developer has also been exploiting the increased horsepower that the PC and PS4 Pro offer. This increase in power allows you to reach out with your hands and influence particles such as waterfalls and dust motes, and adds more surrounding sky islands, cloud layers and a beautiful aurora that can be seen across the night sky.

Image quality is also said to be noticeably smoother and god-rays and bloom effects have been added. Meanwhile, the increased performance also allows the team to boost the fidelity of the voxel effect it uses during building and upgrading to heighten visual drama.

Why Ratchet & Clank is the Most Important PS5 Game

Tethered is currently available for PlayStation VR at the price point of $32.99 USD.
