Gameplay Footage From ‘Paranormal Activity’ VR Game, “Lost Souls”

Found footage is nearly dead and with is goes the Paranormal Activity franchise. However, virtual reality is on the rise and the one thing that found footage translates to is such, which is what I saw in the new Blair Witch movie. VR is coming at us like a hurricane and companies are scrambling to create new content. Paranormal Activity make a whole lot of sense. Too bad it looks cheap and dated, already.

Some footage has been released from “Paranormal Activity: Lost Souls”, which appears to be an officially licensed VR game headed by VRWERX. While it looks sort of crummy, it is run by the Unreal Engine, which is dope. I haven’t had a chance to experience high end VR equipment yet, but I hope they find a way to do away with the “screen door” affect sooner rather than later as it hinders the experience quite a bit…

The game will support the major VR headsets that are currently on the way, including the HTC Vive, Playstation VR and Oculus, when it arrives next spring on Steam, PS4 and Xbox One. A non-VR version of the game will also release on those platforms.

“This Paranormal Activity VR Game from VRWERX is truly terrifying,” said LeeAnne Stables, President of Worldwide Marketing Partnerships & Licensing for Paramount Pictures. “This is a groundbreaking way to experience the actual thrill of ‘Paranormal Activity’ and we are excited to give fans of the movie franchise a first look at what’s coming this spring.”

“Paranormal Activity: Lost Souls” is said to now be arriving sometime this year.

    one of the worst horror franchises ever

  • At least there’s an under your version coming out I can’t justify singing that much money into a VR headset

      There is a non VR version coming out?
      If so awesome.

      • That says in the article that there will be an non VR version hopefully they come out at the same time. I love the concept of VR but wearing a the goggles while gaming plus the not great for extended play and the expense makes it a no go for me

          Yea im not planning to buy a VR headset for a while so great if many of the horror VR games are available to play without it too.

    A few things from someone who has tried the demo….

    Not sure what the writer means by “screen door”, but the graphics look real on the high end VR devices, and it is terrifying! This is coming from someone who did not think the movies were scary at all. I was physically shaking at times during my 5 minute demo. The 3D sound, realistic design, and experience as a whole are top notch, and it was the first demo that made me want a VR device.

    I was able to try this at GDC’16 back in March. Can’t wait for a full release!

    That would make a cool movie twist. You think your watching a regular found footage flick and then at the end it is reveal it was just a VR game. But the VR wound up coming into our world and all these crazy things start to happen.
