Seismic Games and Alcon Media Group have partnered to develop a new VR game based on the Blade Runner series of films. Blade Runner Revelations will release on Google Daydream as well as being included with the upcoming Lenovo Mirage Solo headset.

The game is set after the events of the 1982 original and before last year’s Blade Runner 2049. It follows a Blade Runner named Harper who is equipped with a spinner, blaster, and the Esper image reconstruction programme who must take down a replicant plot.

Speaking in a press statement, Greg Borrud, CEO of Seismic Games, said:

“Seismic Games continues to invest and focus on creating high production game titles that authentically engage and transform major IPs into compelling and expansive interactive experiences for the fans.  Collaborating with Alcon Media Group, Google and Lenovo for Blade Runner: Revelations has been an absolute honor, and we can’t wait to hear what the fans and general VR users think as they explore the game.”

Andrew Kosove and Broderick Johnson, co-founders of Alcon Media Group, added:

“It has been incredibly rewarding to see the Blade Runner universe brought to life with so much faithfulness and nuance in Blade Runner: Revelations thanks to our partners at Seismic Games, Google, and the cutting-edge technology from Lenovo and their upcoming Mirage Solo release.  From the aesthetic and narrative details to the intriguing gameplay in the VR world, Seismic has set the bar in delivering a highly rewarding and immersive film-to-game experience Blade Runner fans will enjoy.”

You can check out a trailer for the game which releases sometime in the first half of this year. The trailer shows off the sci-fi cityscapes, gunplay and the aforementioned image reconstruction system. The iconic soundtrack is also featured, which for a Blade Runner nerd like me, seriously has me hyped.
