Moss (Our Review) was released in February last year on PlayStation 4 and Microsoft Windows, available for PlayStation VR, Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, and Windows MR. Now, as the Oculus Quest approaches release on May 21, developer Polyarc has announced a free update across all supported VR platforms, adding more story content, puzzles, combat, weaponry, and player interaction to the third-person VR adventure.
The update will also include some exclusive content for the Oculus Quest, which players will be able to unlock on May 21, by stepping through portals to Twilight Garden, which adds a brand new chapter to the game. It is described as a complementary experience to existing gameplay, additional environments, challenges, and storytelling. Other VR platforms will receive the update later in June.
Josh Stiksma, Principal Designer at Polyarc, explains why the studio decided to add this Oculus Quest exclusive content.
The Quest is a game changer for the VR industry, and something we’ve been eagerly anticipating as developers specializing in VR content. Its wireless head and hand tracking technology allows full immersion in another world, simply by picking up and putting on a headset, regardless of where you are. Now you can explore the whimsical fairytale from home or on the go as you travel, commute, and visit friends or family. In addition, to make this experience even more magical, we’ve updated the game. Players may now discover and explore new content hidden within the world of Moss.
So now players who enjoyed the original release can revisit the game with some new content. Twilight Garden is described as a strange and vibrant place, where you’ll be tested in new ways as a mysterious presence prepares you for the dangers ahead. Vast chambers replete with unique weaponry, a new realm of puzzles and enemies, and more.
The Oculus Quest exclusive content for Moss will be available on May 21 upon the launch of the device. Other platforms can expect to receive the update automatically in June. You may purchase Moss on Steam, PlayStation Store, Oculus Rift and HTC Viveport for $29.99. You might also be interested in our interview with the Animation Director of Moss.
