Land's End AA

Update (11/10): Right on time, ustwo has just announced that Land’s End is now available for download from the Oculus store. If you’re the owner of a Samsung Gear VR headset, you can now download the game for $7.99.

Land’s End is a virtual reality “adventure” set against beautiful landscapes and is inspired by the Hebrides, Iceland, Saudi Arabia and Stonehenge. In the game, players are tasked with awakening an ancient civilization using mind powers. Be sure to check out the launch trailer, attached below.

Don’t have a Samsung Gear VR? You can now pre-order the headset for just $99.99 from Best Buy.

Original post (9/21): ustwo, the developers behind the widely popular Monument Valley, have just announced that their foray into the virtual reality space will commence next month. Land’s End, which was first announced over one year ago, is a new virtual reality adventure game that will make its way exclusively to the Samsung Gear VR on Friday, October 30th.

Attached below is the game’s first trailer, released by ustwo just this morning. There really aren’t too many details about this game so far, though the trailer’s description on YouTube reads that it will provide “an adventure through spectacular landscapes to awaken a lost civilization.” In the game, according to Engadget, you’ll encounter a puzzle every few minutes, which will require you to levitate blocks or join dots using nothing but head movements to advance to the next area. Puzzles will get more difficult as the game progresses, but not to the point where it becomes frustrating.

Similar to Monument Valley, Land’s End will only provide about an hour’s worth of gameplay in total. No pricing information has been disclosed quite yet, but we’ll be sure to let you know once we get the details. Judging from the trailer, what are your thoughts? Is Land’s End setting out to be the Monument Valley of VR? Tell us what you think in the comments below.
