Elijah Wood Took the Ubisoft E3 2018 Stage to Discuss Narrative Adventure Transference


Elijah Wood Took the Ubisoft E3 2018 Stage to Discuss Narrative Adventure Transference

Ubisoft welcomed Elijah Wood and Ubisoft Montreal’s Benoit Richer to the stage to chat about Transference during Ubisoft’s E3 2018 conference presentation.

The official synopsis goes something like this:

“Transference plunges players into the experiment of the brilliant yet troubled scientist Raymond Hayes: a corrupted digital simulation of his family formed using the collective brain data of his wife Katherine, son Benjamin, and Raymond himself. Shifting back and forth between the individual perspectives of each family member, players piece together the mystery as they go hands-on to search for clues, solve puzzles, and discover the corrupted consciousness of a family.”

From the trailer alone, it certainly looks like a harrowing experience with plenty of twists and turns, akin to games like Detroit: Become Human or Quantic Dream’s other games, and it has a pretty creepy quality to it as well. Why did Raymond Hayes start this bizarre experience, anyway? What’s he trying to run away from, re-experience…or hide? It looks like we’ll soon see, and we’ll bring you more details as they come down the line.

Transference will come with full VR availability on PSVR, Oculus Rift, and HTC Vive. If you prefer to play without VR, the game will still be fully playable on PS4, Xbox One, and PC when it launches this fall. For now, check out Ubisoft’s debut trailer below to have a look at the game before it sets down later this year.
