Dark Souls and Bloodborne creator From Software is making an exclusive virtual reality game for Sony’s PlayStation VR platform called Déraciné. The game was officially unveiled at Sony’s PlayStation E3 keynote this evening in Los Angeles with a teaser trailer. From the admittedly short glimpses of it, Déraciné looks like it will be a substantial departure from the action-oriented, horror approach of From Software’s more recent and celebrated titles in the Soulsborne series.
Here’s how Sony describes it:
As a spirit summoned by a young girl in a secluded boarding school, the player must prove its existence and build a unique bond with the students through clever interactions. As the mystery of the story unfolds, the spirit must use its ability to manipulate the forces of life and time to change the fate of the pupils.
The game is slated to come out in 2018, so we’ll hopefully get more details and perhaps some actual VR gameplay footage later this year.
