VR Adventure The Gallery: Heart of the Emberstone Gets Launch Trailer

The 2nd episode expands the story and ups the production values.


The highly anticipated 2nd episode of The Gallery from Cloudhead Games is nearly upon us and the team is revving up the hype train with a launch trailer for Heart of the Emberstone.

Heart of the Emberstone expands on the story of The Gallery, but also ups the production value. The development team has gotten more comfortable with creating an interactive VR experience and are upping the ante for players. They've also tapped the legendary Jeremy Soule, a composer that provided music for The Elder Scrolls and Knights of the Old Republic, to craft an original soundtrack for the episode.

The story picks up after receiving a gauntlet at the end of Call of the Starseed. You'll journey to the long-forgotten world of Ember as you search for your sister and uncover the true intention of the dark figure from the first episode.

The Gallery: Heart of the Emberstone will launch October 17 on Oculus Rift and HTC Vive and is a standing, room-scale VR experience. System requirements are below.
