Update – Originally due for release in March SYREN is currently in QA and will be launching on PlayStation VR shortly.
UK based virtual reality and immersive entertainment studio Hammerhead VR is bringing SYREN, a survival horror game that draws upon the myths of monsters in the deep and mad scientists, to PlayStation VR soon.
SYREN is a story about a scientist obsessed with eugenics who builds an underwater research facility above an ancient lost city, to 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’s 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. 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.
Check out the gameplay trailer and screenshots below.
There is currently no set release date for SYREN but hold tight as Hammerhead VR assure us it is on its way.
