The rather lovable virtual reality game Moss will be updated with a brand new, and totally free, DLC chapter. PlayStation VR, Oculus Rift/S, HTC Vive, and Windows MR platforms will receive the update this June, but those with a snazzy new Oculus Quest will be able to get the game and update on May 21st.
“The Quest is a game changer for the VR industry, and something we’ve been eagerly anticipating as developers specialising 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,” said Josh Stiksma, principal designer, Polyarc. “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.”
The game finds you helping a heroic young mouse named Quill on a quest to rescue his uncle. Players control Quill but also can interact with the enthronement, clearing paths for the tiny hero, or helping him to solve puzzles. The new DLC will add portals the new play area, the Twilight Garden. “Here you’re tested in new ways as a mysterious presence prepares you for the dangers ahead,” say developers Polyarc, “You’ll explore vast chambers, discover unique weaponry, and face a new realm of puzzles and enemies. Success will require mastery from you both, but if achieved, could change what’s believed possible for a partnership of your kind.”
We gave Moss an 8/10 when we reviewed the PlayStation VR version. “Moss is an absolute joy to play, proving that a great VR experience doesn’t always require that you flail your arms around while fending off bouts of motion sickness,” said Kris. “It’s a wonderfully realised puzzle platformer with clever twists, beautiful backdrops, and an adorable hero, making PlayStation VR even more tempting for prospective buyers.”
