VirtuaVerse has made a bit of a name for itself over on PC, with Steam reviews sitting in the Very Positive range. Now though it’s time for that same game to make a move on console, with Xbox, PlayStation and Switch players being given the opportunity to take in the cyberpunk vibe and point-and-clicking actions of VirtuaVerse.
Available to purchase and download on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation and Switch – as well as through Steam for PC – VirtuaVerse from Theta Division and Blood Music is sold on the back of being a challenging old school cyberpunk point-and-clicker. Now, many may still reel at the thought of another cyberpunk styled game arriving on the scene – and we’ve certainly had many of those in the last year – but this one certainly looks to deserve your attention.
It’s priced at £12.99 from the Xbox Store and should be similarly priced elsewhere, and should you open the wallet and drop the pill will discover a world full of opportunity. It’s also a world full of tales, with those mostly coming from the technomancers, graffiti writers, hackers and cryptoshamans that VirtuaVerse just loves to deal in.
There’s a lot going on in VirtuaVerse but it’s the life of Nathan which you need to worry about. An outsider, it’s up to you to help him work his way through a testing journey, dealing with crypto this and cyber that in order to make sense of the world around.
If those Steam reviews are anything to go by, this is one you won’t want to be missing. We’ll be sure to drop our own thoughts in regards how VirtuaVerse plays out on Xbox in the days ahead.
Pick it up for yourself by visiting the usual stores. Let us link you to the Xbox Store direct.
VirtuaVerse is a challenging old-school cyberpunk point & click adventure set in a future not so far away narrating tales of technomancers, AVR graffiti writers, hacker groups, tribes of cryptoshamans, digital archeology, epic cyberwars and virtual reality debauchery. “In a future not too far away, one Artificial Intelligence has prevailed over all other AIs and their governments. Society has migrated to a permanently integrated reality connected to a single neural network that continuously optimizes people’s experiences by processing personal data. Nathan, an outsider still refusing to comply with the new system, makes a living off the grid as a smuggler of modded hardware and cracked software. Geared with his custom headset, he is among the few that can still switch AVR off and see reality for what truly is. He shares an apartment in the city with his girlfriend Jay, a talented AVR graffiti writer whose drones have been bit-spraying techno-color all over the augmented space in the city. Waking up one morning, Nathan discovers that Jay disappeared overnight, but not before leaving a cryptic message on their bathroom mirror. Having accidentally broken his custom headset, Nathan is now disconnected and determined to find out what happened to Jay, but he soon finds himself tangled up in an unexpected journey involving Jay’s hacker group and a guild of AVR technomancers. Travelling around the world, he’ll have to deal with hardware graveyards, digital archeology, tribes of cryptoshamans, and virtual reality debauchery.”
