Winner of the Best Virtual Reality Game Award at gamescom 2016, Wilson’s Heart is one of the most highly anticipated Touch titles. Now, we’re excited to announce that this psychological thriller will bring its killer AAA-quality graphics and deep gameplay to Rift on April 25.
A strong example of VR’s immersive narrative complexity, Wilson’s Heart taps into the look and feel of classic monster movies for atmospheric effect. Add in award-worthy performances from Rosario Dawson (Sin City, Top Five), Alfred Molina (Spider-Man 2, Raiders of the Lost Ark), and Peter Weller (RoboCop, Star Trek Into Darkness)—plus even more high-caliber performances to share at launch—and Wilson’s Heart is destined to raise the psychological thriller genre to terrifying new heights.
You wake up as Robert Wilson, a patient in a creepy 1940s hospital that initially seems abandoned. Moving through a blood-streaked corridor, you face your startling new reflection and start to unravel a disturbing mystery. Suspending disbelief has never been easier or more compelling than living this mind-bending scenario firsthand in VR.
Step into the world of Wilson’s Heart’s black and white, neo-noir aesthetic with perception-altering reveals around every corner. Dramatic lighting and sound design ratchet up the suspense, hinting at what lurks in the shadows. With natural movements and intuitive controls, Touch lets you navigate the world around you with your own hands and solve puzzles under pressure. And just wait until you experience its ghoulish combat.
Mark your calendars—Wilson’s Heart continues the stream of incredible games coming to Rift. We can’t wait to bring you into this haunting adventure on April 25.
