At the beginning of 2022 Mighty Eyes released its first virtual reality (VR) in the form of Wanderer. A clever time travel game with escape-room-style puzzles, it was quite surprising to hear in June that it would be getting a remake. Now titled Wanderer: The Fragments of Fate, that initial reveal was for PlayStation VR 2 and PC VR headsets. Now it has been confirmed a Meta Quest 2 version is in the works too.
The reveal came by way of a new trailer on the Meta Quest YouTube channel, showcasing some of the visual improvements players can expect. As mentioned Wanderer: The Fragments of Fate is a remake, so the core game and narrative remain the same. Everything else is getting a big overhaul.
Rewriting Wanderer’s History
As previously mentioned in the original PlayStation Blog, Wanderer: The Fragments of Fate is going to enjoy “breathtaking new visuals” thanks to next-gen hardware. Most importantly – where Quest 2 is concerned – you’ll be able to “swim, jump, crouch, climb, zipline and swing your way through time.”
The all-new physics-driven platforming has been combined with several other new features to make the Wanderer universe even more immersive. It’ll feature full-body avatars with players able to see a dynamically responsive avatar in the mirror. PSVR 2 owners will also benefit from eye-tracking and the headset’s advanced haptics.
It doesn’t stop there either, Mighty Eyes promises larger worlds to explore and three new levels. “A whole new combat system has been designed around a new set of weapons, ammo and enemies,” the studios explains. “Allowing players to be more creative with how they solve the various combat situations they encounter through time.”
Wanderer: The Fragments of Fate is currently slated for a 2024 release on PSVR 2, Quest 2 and PC VR.
