Ubisoft’s Transference Now Has a Release Date and Playable Demo For PS4 and PSVR

It can be easy to forget among the noise of all the upcoming late-year AAA releases that publishing giant Ubisoft have a VR-focussed psychological thriller game on the horizon. First announced at E3 2017 and then shown off again at E3 2018, Transference is a game developed in collaboration with a film production company called SpectreVision, headed up by one Elijah Wood.

Today we have finally been given confirmation of a release date, with the game set to come out this year on the 18th of September. It also seems that Ubisoft have deemed to bless those of us on the hype train for the game with a free demo/prequel story of sorts in the form of Transference: The Walter Test Case. Popping up on the PlayStation Store for download today, the demo is playable in both VR and non-VR and weighs in at a slight 1.4GB.

If you need a refresher on what Transference is about, check out the E3 2018 trailer below, or alternatively if you want to jump right in then grab the demo from the PlayStation Store here. Be sure to drop back in and tell us what you think!

Transference will be available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Windows and VR platforms when it releases September 18.

Kieron started gaming on the SEGA Master System, with Sonic the Hedgehog, Alex Kidd and Wonder Boy. The 20-odd years of his life since have not seen his love for platformers falter even slightly. A separate love affair, this time with JRPGs, developed soon after being introduced to Final Fantasy VIII (ie, the best in the series). Further romantic subplots soon blossomed with quirky Japanese games, the occasional flashy AAA action adventure, and an unhealthy number of indie gems. To say that Kieron lies at the center of a tangled, labyrinthine web of sexy video game love would be an understatement.
