ROTU’s second VR adventure game, Eolia, hits Meta Quest 2 (formerly Oculus Quest 2) next month.
The musical title, which is a follow-up to 2021’s Rhythm of the Universe: Ionia, hits the headset on June 9. A new trailer for the game also just arrived, which you can see below.
Eolia Release Date Revealed
The release date pits Eolia’s arrival at less than a year since the launch of Ionia, but ROTU says it’s focused on some key improvements over the first game in the series. It’s aiming to make this a longer, deeper experience with more variety in its puzzles, for example. While it’s a follow-up to the first game, Eolia takes place on another planet, hitting similar themes of climate impact and exploring possibilities with musical gameplay in VR.
Interestingly, Eolia has also been designed as a ‘hands first’ game. While you can play with controllers, every interaction has been created with Quest’s hand-tracking in mind, and you can play the game from start to finish in this way. As one of the first story-driven campaigns to utilize the technology, we’ll be very keen to see how this shapes up.
