Ubisoft announces Transference, a VR game about exploring digital memories

At Ubisoft's E3 press conference, a VR 'experience' was announced called Transference, billed as 'psychological thriller' in which the player is "projected into the digital consciousness of troubled case subjects". It's being developed by SpectreVision, and Elijah Wood is in it, too. Have a look at the announcement trailer above.

"Bridging the gap between movies and games, we invite you to lose yourself in the destructive tale of a man’s obsession as you explore his digitally recreated memories," says the YouTube description. It's slated for a Spring 2018 release. You can visit the official site here.

Christopher Livingston

Chris started playing PC games in the 1980s, started writing about them in the early 2000s, and (finally) started getting paid to write about them in the late 2000s. Following a few years as a regular freelancer, PC Gamer hired him in 2014, probably so he'd stop emailing them asking for more work. Chris has a love-hate relationship with survival games and an unhealthy fascination with the inner lives of NPCs. He's also a fan of offbeat simulation games, mods, and ignoring storylines in RPGs so he can make up his own.
