Ready at Dawn’s Ru Weerasuriya took to the stage during the PC Gaming Show at E3 2017 to reveal more details on the studio’s next project, Lone Echo.
The game represents the studio’s first foray in virtual reality, but builds on the philosophy of experimentation that Ready at Dawn is increasingly reliant on. According to Weerasuriya, Lone Echo is built entirely around the core traversal mechanic, which makes novel use of the capabilities of VR hardware.
Set in zero-gravity, players will move about by pushing, pulling, and grabbing on to the various artefacts scattered about the game’s expansive environments. Unfortunately, few specific story details were forthcoming at the conference.
Instead, the presentation focused on the multiplayer portion of the game, which is an entirely separate system and appears to draw inspiration from the sporting sector.
The game is currently expected to release exclusively on Oculus Rift hardware on July 20, 2017.
