Last month Wolf & Wood announced that its five-part horror series The Exorcist: Legion VR would be coming to Oculus Quest as a day one release for anyone who wants to run around their living room getting scared to death. Now, publisher Fun Train has revealed that The Exorcist: Legion VR – The Complete Series will be arriving next week in preparation for the launch of Oculus Rift S, plus there’s an added Quest bonus as well.
The Complete Series will include all 5 chapters of the horror experience including First Rites, Idle Hands, Skin Deep, Samaritan and The Tomb, made available for Oculus Rift and Oculus Rift S next Monday, 20th May, ahead of the headsets launch the day after. It’ll retail for $24.99 USD. Previously, you could only buy The Exorcist: Legion VR in the individual chapters.
And to make the series even more attractive for purchase it’ll also support cross-buy with Oculus Quest when that arrives next Tuesday, 21st May.
The five-part horror series started being rolled out to HTC Vive and Oculus Rift owners in late 2017, beginning with chapters one and two at the same time, with chapter five completing the saga in August 2018. You step into the shoes of a Boston homicide detective tasked with investigating a series of ritualistic murders, including a priest at a local church. They have all the makings of a serial killer but it soon becomes apparent at the cause is far more demonic. Each chapter is around 30 minutes in length, each having its own unique story which is then part of a large story arc.
VRFocus gave it four-stars in our review, saying: “Its the presentation where The Exorcist: Legion VR shines. It is not long or complex, but it has bags of atmosphere and says what it needs to say with panache. The sense of presence is used effectively to give you a properly immersive horror experience.”
The Exorcist: Legion VR is just one of a number of titles confirmed to support cross-buy, with Oculus Quest featuring over 50 video games and apps for launch day.
