HBO is getting into the gaming arena with a new VR game based on their hit series “Westworld”. Titled “Westworld Awakening,” the HBO and Survios game is set during the midst of the second season and has been described as a narrative-driven, single-player stealth exploration experience.
The game is played from the perspective of Kate – a host within the Mesa facility who has suddenly attained self-awareness and must undergo a journey of self-discovery to understand exactly what that means. Players can use the Quality Assurance tablet to manipulate the world around them.
As you navigate Delos’ labyrinthine laboratories and offices, you must also avoid Hank – a relentless serial killer host who has stalked Westworld for generations and awakened alongside you. To escape, you must plunge into the secret past of Westworld and overcome an entire world designed to destroy and enslave you.
The game was designed for Vive and Oculus head-mounted displays and is now available for download on Steam, Oculus, and VIVEPORT and in more than 400 VR arcades this week.
