Monument Valley dev to launch Land’s End VR adventure next month

Monument Valley developer ustwo has announced Land’s End, a VR adventure game launching next month.

The company behind critically-acclaimed puzzler Monument Valley, has confirmed that its follow-up game Land’s End will be available on October 30.

Land’s End uses a gaze-based mechanic for exploration and puzzles across five in-game worlds, in what will be ustwo’s first full virtual reality game.

Sadly, there’s a big issue with Land’s End. It will be exclusively available on the Samsung Gear VR, meaning you need a Samsung Galaxy S6 or Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge in order to play it.

“The landscape in the game were inspired by beautiful, isolated regions from around the world, from the soaring cliffs of northern Europe to the harsh beauty of the Sahara, and neolithic sites and artefacts such as Stonehenge,” explained ustwo.

As a player you’ll be tasked with awakening an ancient civilisation using the “powers of [your] mind”.

Land’s End will combine the interactive storytelling ustwo is known for with what the developer claims will be “an incredible virtual reality experience that you can take anywhere”.

The game will be available via the Oculus Store on October 30.
