Way back in 2015 HELM Systems released a very early demo for its fantasy virtual reality (VR) title The SoulKeeper VR for the Oculus Rift DK2 headset. Then last month the studio finally announced that the videogame would be seeing an Early Access release for Oculus Rift and HTC Vive next Tuesday, 15th August. Just to build anticipation even further, today it has now released a new trailer.
Featuring plenty of cinematic’s along with gameplay footage the video isn’t some teaser trailer. Coming in at over two minutes there’s plenty to see and get excited about. From colossal ruins with giant dragon like creatures to confined dungeons and castles with all sorts of magical enemies, The Soul Keeper VR has plenty going on for those who enjoy fantasy style role-playing games (RPGs).
Set in the magical world of Gerindak, players aren’t just one character, playing through the intertwining stories of various characters. They start off as Isoropos, a member of an ancient monastic order called the Lavordians, who must embark on a dangerous quest to investigate rumors surrounding the Mardonians, their hated rivals.
Players will be able to engage in melee combat, cast spells, or shoot arrows, as they try to survive towering beasts and deadly traps. There’s even a chance to get some dragon riding in.
