The 7th Guest VR is such an unexpected project it virtually demands attention. Based on the original, ground-breaking 90s FMV adventure game, this updated version transposes the plot and puzzles of the original to virtual reality headsets, like PSVR2. Announced earlier in the year, developer Vertigo Games confirmed today that the title will launch on 19th October.

“With The 7th Guest VR, we aim to push the boundaries of what is possible in virtual reality, just like the original game did with the CD-ROM,” game director Paul van der Meer explained. "The story trailer shows the real achievements of volumetric capture at this level, giving players a taste of the intense atmosphere as they observe the characters exploring the strange happenings of the mansion, and the sinister reasons they’ve been brought there.”

If you have any familiarity with the original The 7th Guest, then we imagine this is going to be a must-play. But even if you’ve never heard of the 90s classic, we reckon the use of FMV in a virtual reality environment could prove quite ground-breaking here. We’re eager to see just how well it works when the game launches later this year.
