PlayStation VR gamers patiently waiting for The Mage’s Tale adventure to be made available on the PSVR platform after previously being made available on the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift. Will be pleased to know that the first-person sword and sorcery dungeon crawler will soon be available on the PSVR system.
inXile’s Brian Fargo and team have released a new teaser trailer to whet your appetite for what you can expect on the PlayStation VR. The Mage’s Tale is a spin-off of The Bard’s Tale, set before the events The Bard’s Tale IV: Barrows Deep and is inXile’s first virtual reality title.
“Coming soon to PlayStation VR: The Mage’s Tale, a dungeon crawler set in the world of The Bard’s Tale! Wield elemental magic and begin your journey from apprentice to master!”
“The Mage’s Tale makes use of both free movement and a teleport mechanic for locomotion. Movement is step-based, and confined to four directions, similar in feel to grid-based dungeon crawlers, but without being limited to a grid-based map. This allows players to navigate and dodge in real-time, but the short bursts of movement help to mitigate the sim-sickness suffered by some with smooth movement. The game makes use of a deep spell-crafting system that allows players to mix various ingredients to create different effects. These ingredients affect the element, behaviour, and strength of spells.”
