The Assembly

Farnborough, UK-based developer nDreams announced its first PlayStation 4 Project Morpheus project at E3 today.

The Assembly is described as a “mysterious virtual reality adventure game” designed from the ground up for VR. It will include many gameplay mechanics suited for the headset.

“For example, you get to control two different characters at various points, and in VR, you really notice details like their different heights, sounds and voices,” nDreams CEO Patrick O’Luanaigh said on the PlayStation Blog. “Rather than playing as a silent character, we found that playing the role of characters in the story works really well, and helps make The Assembly feel quite different to most other VR projects.”

The story revolves around the underground world of The Assembly, a secretive collection of scientists, academics and engineers who believe morality in society is preventing scientific advancement and are committed to discovering a universal theory of everything, “at any cost.”

A demo of the game is playable at E3 this week.
