Stockholm, Sweden, June 9, 2020 - What if monsters were real? 

Fast Travel Games is proud to announce our new project; a VR horror game called Wraith: The Oblivion - Afterlife, coming to all major VR platforms. Sharing the same universe as Vampire: The Masquerade and Werewolf: The Apocalypse, Afterlife will let players enter the World of Darkness in virtual reality for the first time ever. It is also the first video game created based on Wraith: The Oblivion. Set in the modern Barclay Mansion, players will take the perspective of a Wraith and unravel the many mysteries that await beyond the Shroud.

Watch the Announcement Trailer here.

Erik Odeldahl, Creative Director at Fast Travel Games explains: “I am a massive fan of games like Amnesia: The Dark Descent and Alien: Isolation, and have always felt that the kind of narrative-driven, exploration-focused horror these titles deliver would be perfect for VR." He continues: "To make such a game in the World of Darkness setting, specifically the rich and mystical world of Wraith: The Oblivion, is really a dream come true for me, and I cannot wait to share more details about it!"

Sean Greaney, Brand Manager for World of Darkness at Paradox Interactive, adds “Playing games in the World of Darkness story universe, whether it’s tabletop, traditional video game, or VR, lets us experience a dark, urban fantasy layered over our modern world. By assuming the perspective of a monster, we can gain a better understanding of what it truly means to be human. We're excited to be taking our first steps from the Skinlands toward Stygia in World of Darkness version 5 in such an innovative and appropriate medium. Death is only the beginning in Wraith: The Oblivion…

Afterlife will be fully revealed with a gameplay trailer during Gamescom Now which starts August 27. Make sure to follow @WraithAfterlife on Twitter, Facebook & Instagram for updates.
