The first episode of Cloudhead Games' virtual reality adventure The Gallery debuted to much acclaim, currently maintaining a "Very Positive" rating on steam with over 600 reviews. Call of the Starseed is a groundbreaking first step as you explore the world inspired by 80's fantasy film and seek out your missing sister. Those that completed the episode have been eagerly awaiting the next leg of the journey and Cloudhead has revealed a plethora of new details, including the release date: October 18, 2017

Episode 2, titled "Heart of the Emberstone", will be picking up right after the last where you've gained new power via your Gauntlet. 

This is a VR adventure that hits the high notes that fans loved about EP1, but evolves the genre in some important ways," says Antony Stevens, Cloudhead Games' marketing manager, in an update. "Now that the public has become more comfortable with VR, we’re taking the gloves off with lengthier gameplay, higher puzzle density and complexity, evolved VR mechanics, and a deeper dive into the narrative of The Gallery world."

Along with sharing the release date, Stevens also shared that Episode 2 will run around four to six hours and come with a $29.99 price tag. If you don't have the first episode, there's going to be a 10% discount when you purchase both episodes and discount for existing owners of Episode 1. If you're itching to grab Episode 1 right now, it's actually available for 50% off until October 4th on Steam, Oculus Home, and Viveport
