Play stunning VR adventure game The Assembly at EGX

EGX, the UK's largest games event, and nDreams, the UK's biggest specialist VR developer-publisher, are excited to announce that nDreams' immersive virtual reality game The Assembly will be playable publically for the first time at EGX this 24th-27th September.

The Assembly is an incredibly immersive story-driven, character-focussed first person adventure game built from the ground-up for all the major VR headsets, including Oculus Rift (Windows PC), Project Morpheus (Playstation 4) and HTC Vive (SteamVR). At EGX the team will be demoing the game on the Oculus Rift. At its core, this unique VR experience offers players moral dilemma, doscovery, exploration and mystery. All from the dual perspectives of the game's two main characters.

"Over the summer, we've been busy enhancing every part of The Assembly, from its story and setting to its gameplay and graphics," said Patrick O'Luanaigh, CEO of nDreams. "Until now, we've only exhibited the game to the press, so we're thrilled to be giving The Assembly its first major public outing at EGX in Birmingham. We're really looking forward to seeing what the gaming community make of our adventure in VR!"

David Lilley, Managing Director of Gamer Events, added:

"nDreams are at the forefront of virtual reality storytelling. We can't wait for the public to get their hands on The Assembly for the first time and experience what is possible with this incredible new technology."
