Evolve Dev's New Game Wants You to Face Your Fears in VR

Face Your Fears puts players in different scenes based on people's phobias.

14 Comments

[UPDATE] We've updated the following story with screenshots of Face Your Fears.

Original story: Oculus announced multiple games for the Oculus Rift at its Connect 3 press conference, but it also talked about some experiences coming to Gear VR. Two of these come from Evolve developer Turtle Rock Studios and release this month.

Face Your Fears is a horror experience that has players experiencing such things as standing on the edge of a skyscraper while a giant robot climbs up the building towards you. It has multiple scenes, but aside from Skyscraper, only one other has been revealed so far. The Haunting has players standing in a child's bedroom that's haunted by a ghost.

Turtle Rock's other experience is called Other Worlds and has players experiencing what it's like to be inside a painting by artist Justin Cherry. There are several scenes that feature 360-degree panoramic views and 3D audio, and you can do things like meditate or listen to music while sitting in them.

Co-founder and design director Chris Ashton says that virtual reality "leverages a lot of what [Turtle Rock has] learned while making triple-A games for PC and console."

"[B]ut the possibilities here feel endless," he added. "We're breaking new ground and that's something that has always spoken to the soul of TRS."

Face Your Fears launches for Gear VR on October 31. A specific release date hasn't been announced for Other Worlds, but it's expected this month.

Also announced at Oculus Connect 3 were the release date and price for the Oculus Touch controllers. They cost $200, can be preordered on October 10, and release on December 6.

AS an adept in the field of human psychology I'm here to inform the makers of this gamehaving people "face their fears" is the absolutely worst thing you can do in the treatment process.

I guess this cements Turtle Rock as a one-trick pony dev.

Why put on a VR headset to go back in time to buy an pre-order of the over priced digital collectors edition of Evolve?

I really wish dev's would get off this VR fad. They're not practical. They're a resource hog. They cost more than the systems the run on, they're not designed for any kind of extended play. And worst is it ruins otherwise good games because dev's focused to much on VR compatibility and lost sight of everything else.

LOL this is pretty lame.......how the F did they go from L4D to Evolve to this crap??? cus Valve went right into L4D2 as soon as the first one was done and really they should have worked on it more added more to it.....and now they just sit on their games like all large publishers do.....so these guys had to strike out on their own......ugh still not good IMO

My one and only fear is losing money to games that later turn out to be garbage.
