Alcon Media Group has announced a partnership with Google and technology company Lenovo to release the upcoming VR videogame Blade Runner: Revelations for Google Daydream. The news of this latest VR tie-in for the Blade Runner franchise came at CES 2018, Las Vegas, announced by Alcon co-founders and co-CEOs Broderick Johnson and Andrew Kosove.
Blade Runner: Revelations is a VR experience based in the iconic Blade Runner universe in which users assume the role of Harper, a seasoned blade runner. Players will attempt to unravel a twisted replicant plot that threatens the delicate balance of Los Angeles in 2023. Users must search for evidence using assets such as their flying spinner, blaster weapon and esper image reconstruction as they attempt to try and solve the mystery in an immersive VR environment.
Alcon Media Group and Alcon Interactive will publish the new videogame following the critical success of the recent motion-picture release, Blade Runner 2049, from Oscar nominated director Dennis Villeneuve and starring Ryan Gosling, Harrison Ford, Ana de Armas, Sylvia Hoeks, Robin Wright, Mackenzie Davis, Carla Juri and Lennie James, Dave Bautista and Jared Leto.
Blade Runner: Revelations is one of few new titles confirmed for the Google Daydream platform, and thus the Lenovo Mirage Solo is looking set to have a pretty sparse software line-up at launch.
