There are many different gaming scenarios available to take in throughout the world that we call home, and now, with the arrival of Transference we find another rather unique call to action. The question is… do you have what it takes to unravel the mysteries found in this first person explorative adventure?
Available for purchase and download right now on Xbox One, PS4 and PC, Transference is a collaboration between the giants of Ubisoft and those at SpectreVision as the two combine to try and bring us a game that, for once and for all, bridges the gap between the movie world and that of the gaming universe.
Also dropping on VR platforms, Transference throws us into a strange chilling dimension and that of an experiment being run by an even stranger, rather troubled, scientist. From there we are shown three unique perspectives of one single family, and then left to unravel the going ons found within.
With a big emphasis on ensuring that Transference feels like a movie blockbuster, but actually can still manage to play as a game, if you’re looking for something to test your brain allowing you to try and solve a ton of puzzles from a multitude of perspectives, then this is the game for you.
- A THRILLER THAT FEELS LIKE A MOVIE, BUT PLAYS LIKE A GAME – Project yourself into a narrative experience that combines Hollywood with gaming. In Transference, you will be immersed in an unsettling psychological thriller with all of the tension of a suspense film, combining live-action footage with environmental storytelling to unlock haunting emotions that lingers long after you put the controller down.
- SOLVE A MYSTERY FROM MULTIPLE PERSPECTIVES – Enter a corrupted digital simulation created by a brilliant but troubled scientist, Raymond Hayes. Transference is a world built from the collective brain data of Raymond, his wife Katherine and their son Benjamin. Recover a fragmented family as you shift back and forth between each individual’s perspective and piece together the mystery of their lives. Go hands-on to search for clues, solve puzzles and discover the corrupted consciousness of a family.
- IT’S YOUR EXPERIENCE, THROUGH YOUR EYES – In this truly first-person narrative mystery it is you, who will explore the story of a family told through the walls of their home. This is no RPG, you stumble into Raymond’s experiment with your own experience and must interpret events for yourself.
- AN INTENSE EXPERIENCE ON EVERY PLATFORM – Transference offers a tense and unsettling experience regardless of platform. For unparalleled immersion, VR is tuned to plunge you into a world of emotional intensity. The game offers full interactivity in VR on PlayStation®VR, Oculus Rift and HTC Vive. Manipulate the world with your hands through Oculus Touch and the HTC Vive Controller. Match your needs with customizable input for controls on every platform. The game is also fully playable on traditional platforms PS4, Xbox One and PC, bringing this unique and disturbing narrative experience to everyone.
