The Exorcist: Legion VR Unleashes Virtual Hell Next Week

The original "Exorcist" movie stands out as one of the greatest horror movies of all-time. And while subsequent sequels haven't hit the same success as their predecessor, the original film's concept is still one that resonates today. Now the idea of an episodic story-based game may sound like a decent idea, but what if it were to go the extra mile with virtual reality?

Developers Fun Train and Wolf & Wood are taking on that tall task, announcing on Tuesday that The Exorcist: Legion VR would be coming to both SteamVR and Oculus VR. This story will follow the narrative of "The Exorcist III," but tell its own standalone tale of a legion of demons coming, just as Pazuzu foretold back in the first movie. As a detective, players must investigate the demonic outbreak and prepare for the evil that's yet to come.

The first two chapters of The Exorcist: Legion VR, titled "First Rites" and "Idle Hands," are both slated to release on November 22. Each episode is set to run for $4.99, though the opening episode will get a 20 percent discount for the first week.
