Frima Studio was excited to announce that their Norse-themed virtual reality game, FATED: The Silent Oath, has arrived on both Oculus Rift and HTC Vive, taking players on one man’s quest to protect his family from the destruction of their world at the hands of the gods.
Vincent Martel, Executive Producer at Frima Studio, stated, “Exploring complex emotions and parent-child relationships has allowed us to weave a truly emotional story. In FATED, parental bonds and protective instincts are at the root of a sensitive yet thought-provoking journey.”
During PAX East this past weekend, they treated players to the immersive VR “simulation experience”, complete with wind, drizzle, vibrating seats, and even reins for enhanced realism. You can check out the players’ reactions in the below video:
