Ubisoft's psychological thriller Transference ditches VR requirement, is coming this fall

Such were Elijah Wood's pitch today at Ubisoft's E3 presentation at the Orpheum Theatre in downtown L.A., where he revealed an extended look at the VR game Transference he's been in production on over the last few years under his SpectreVision genre label. The trailer we see seems to show off very haunting scenes and a creature wandering a house.

The game revolves around an experiment developed by a troubled scientist that is made from the brain data of his three family members.

Imagine an escape room set in a deranged mind, in both VR and on traditional platforms. The game will not only feature computer graphics but will also weave in live-action footage, which meant to stick with the player, well after they put down the controller. Unfortunately, this gathered data has congealed into a dark and twisted consciousness of its own, forming its own digital world which starts to alter the perceptions of Raymond, his wife Katherine and their son Benjamin.
