New horror game Syren announced for VR platforms

Hammerhead Interactive gets a first trailer with release pencilled in for next year.

British game developer Hammerhead Interactive has announced a new survival horror game for PSVR, Oculus Rift, and HTC Vive. With the announcement the company also revealed gameplay which takes players "a sinister underwater research facility where dark experiments have led to horrifying results".

No release date yet, but Syren is most likely coming to digital store shelves sometimes next year. Watch the first trailer below:

Here's the Syren's description from the official site:

"A scientist obsessed with eugenics builds an underwater research facility above an ancient lost city, in which he conducts horrific experiments in an attempt to recreate the lost species of 'Syrens' - the legendary inhabitants of the civilisation, that once existed in the ruins below.

You awaken into chaos. The lab in ruins; creaking under the immense pressure of the sea.

With the station reactor about to go critical, you have limited time to navigate out of the lab and evacuate the facility. With death everywhere, you soon learn that you are not alone. Some of the experiments have gotten loose.

In this stealth and survival game, you must solve puzzles to progress through a series of room scale scenes and always remain alert for the deadly Syrens who are hiding in the shadows."
