If you're thinking the humans look incredibly real, there's a reason: Transference combines live-action filmmaking with gameplay for an experience its creators liken to an escape room...except the room you must find a way to exit is a human mind. There had been relatively little noise about the title since, but we have a much firmer idea of what to expect as Elijah Wood took to the stage to enlighten us on what to expect from the game coming from Ubisoft and his production company, Spectrevision.
Transference will launch for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC this fall, Ubisoft announced during its E3 2018 press conference.
The first person exploration game will focus on Raymond Hayes and his experiments with collecting brain data from subjects, which happen to be from himself and members of his family. From the perspective of different family members-the simulation is constructed from the "brain data" of Raymond, his wife, and their young son-you'll move through their home, discover their secrets, and collect the evidence you need to fix their lives. Players will be enveloped in this mind-bending digital world and shift between the perspectives of Raymond, his wife Katherine, and their son Benjamin to recover the fragmented family memories and attempt to piece together their mystery.
