Canadian independent developer Frima Studio today released a behind-the-scenes video for FATED: The Silent Oath, its Norse-themed virtual reality game that launched last month on Oculus Rift and HTC Vive.
The trailer provides a unique look into the inner workings of the game, and more insight into the development process of new experiences in virtual reality.
“Harnessing the power of virtual reality, FATED takes the players on a journey that packs an incredible emotional punch,” said Vincent Martel, executive producer at Frima Studio. “Our behind-the-scenes trailer offers a sneak peek of the different steps involved in bringing FATED to life in virtual reality.”
Developed with Unreal Engine 4, FATED: The Silent Oath is a first-person immersive adventure set in the mythical age of Vikings and built specifically for virtual reality. Written by Jill Murray, a writer on Assassin’s Creed, FATED tells the story of a man and his family during Ragnarök – the end times. On their journey, as he comes across a mix of touching and terrifying events, this man learns about himself and his loved ones, taking the players on a fully immersive emotional rollercoaster.
FATED leverages the capabilities of VR to bring about a leap forward in storytelling. Featuring high-quality writing, characterisation and voice acting, FATED aims to transport the players to a world of myth and legend, and to make them feel a true emotional connection with the story and its characters.
Priced at $19.99/£14.99/€19.99, FATED is a first-generation virtual reality game available on Oculus Rift and HTC Vive, and slated to launch on PlayStation VR in Q4 2016.
