Publisher Cronos Interactive and developer Mantis Games revealed today more details about their Virtual Reality Greek mythology opus, Journey For Elysium, in a brand new gameplay trailer.

Discover a gripping atmosphere which sets the tone for a terrifying journey into the underworld. Prepare to immerse yourself in a monochromatic black and white environment exposing the game’s dark and unique art style drenched with ancient mythology legends and traditions.

Furthermore, Journey For Elysium will be presented at Gamescom in Cologne on Mantis Games booth (Hall 10.1, stand F40) from August 20th to 24th, 2019.

Journey For Elysium is a story-driven VR game inspired by ancient mythology. Players will take on the role of an unnamed hero who has passed away, travelling on a boat in the Underworld. In order to reach Elysium and obtain redemption, the mysterious traveller must use all his wits and skills in a series of increasingly elaborate twists and challenges. Along the way, he will discover more about his past.

Key features:

  • Puzzles: Journey for Elysium brings back the excitement of classic adventures games of the 90’s and revamps them for a new era. Solve an increasingly complex range of puzzles, challenges and tests to move the story forward.
  • A lot to discover: immerse yourself in a rich world, grounded between history and myth. Explore breathtaking environments and unravel surprising facts of the Classical antiquity. Connect with your senses to this VR storytelling experience.
  • Mechanics: travel on the river Styx and explore the underworld with the rowing mechanic, the most important travelling method in the game. This natural way of transportation is also very comfortable and immersive.
  • Two modes: when you are not rowing, you can experience two different ways of moving around thanks to the Comfort or Immersive modes.
  • Art style: enjoy the black and white art style inspired by the paintings of Gustave Doré. The high contrast art style fits best in recreating the desired atmosphere of the underworld. In addition, you will find golden highlights here and there, which will guide you further along the way.

Journey For Elysium will release in Q4 2019 and will be available on Steam for the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift VR systems.
