Investigate an Underground Bunker in The Assembly, Out Tomorrow on PS VR

As a development studio specializing in virtual reality games and experiences, everyone here at nDreams is incredibly excited about tomorrow’s launch of PlayStation VR.

We’re enormous fans of the astonishing tech Sony has built, so naturally we’re thrilled to be releasing The Assembly on PlayStation VR launch day. You’ll be able to download our first major title for high-end VR from PlayStation Store for $29.99.

Given nDreams’ heritage with Aurora, Xim and Blueprint: Home, being able to demonstrate our studio’s dedication to VR on the latest ground-breaking device feels familiar in all the right ways.

As long-time PlayStation fans, we wanted to celebrate The Assembly’s console launch with a little something special for the platform’s most faithful followers. That’s why we will be providing all PlayStation Plus Members a 25% discount off the launch price. This offer will run for two weeks, ending October 27. So if you’re a PS Plus member, be sure to get it while the getting’s good!

As for the game itself, we shared a full 101 guide to our project a little while back which you can read here. For the uninitiated, The Assembly is our long-form, first-person interactive story, inspired by real-world anxieties and intended for mature audiences. In The Assembly, you’ll take on the role of two different protagonists, explore a morally challenging organization and discover its secrets from two contrasting perspectives.

Over the course of the game, you’ll investigate the Assembly’s secret underground bunker, face trials, and make tough decisions — but will your actions and their repercussions save lives… or lead to catastrophe? That’s for you to find out in one of multiple surprising conclusions.

As an extra-special treat for the PlayStation community, we’re sharing The Assembly’s PlayStation VR launch trailer with readers of this blog first — we hope it gives you taste of what the game has in store for you.

  • Wow, I have to say, this looks awesome!

  • The Assembly is one of my favorite games on the Oculus Rift so I’m very glad to see it coming to PSVR as well! Thanks for the 25% off and including a platinum trophy. Definitely going to be a day one buy for me!

  • This game looks like so much fun! I can’t wait.

    Just to be clear this is a full game right? I only ask because I was excited about Loading Human until I learned it was episodic and each episode is $40 bucks.

  • So many games I want…so little money left.

  • Sony is doing such a disservice to these VR developers. As of this writing 10/12 (morning), if you go to the PlayStation Store and type in VR, there are only 15 titles: 25% are Sony Demos, 2 are PS3 classics with “VR” in the title, and most VR launch titles can’t be purchased for pre-load. I know, you have to type in the names specifically to pull up other VR games without “VR” in the name. Have the web developers never heard of categories or meta tags?

    I’m sure there are others like me who don’t wait until release day to make buying decisions. Amazon got my money weeks ago, and developers like this loose out on the momentum of the system launch tomorrow. It will be weeks before I decide to buy another game. It’s such a shame; this game looks fantastic and I would have loved to spend the money I had allotted on it.

  • Will there be a physical version for this game?

    • The Assembly will be released as a digital download title, available from the PlayStation Store directly from your PS4. Enjoy!

  • Can’t wait to play this game out on the PSVR, Do remember trying the demo back in 2013 E3, sure was nice, glad is finally coming out. NDreams is known for creating the most intriguing games (Xi, Aurora) from them PSHome days.

    • Thanks for the kind words! The Assembly contains even more intrigue than Xi – we can’t wait for the PS community to get their (your!) hands on the game.

  • Already got my VR waiting to buying this Day One looks insanely Awesome

  • Bring back PlayStation Home! In VR? Lol.

  • i questioned how good this game could be when i first saw it, now it looks like it will be my first VR game, i hope its not a short game either

    • The Assembly is between four and five hours long, depending on your skill level… although your time spent can last a *lot* longer if you’re looking into every last nook and cranny to pick up that Platinum Trophy. Our aim for the game has been to deliver a tight, high-quality interactive story throughout.

  • Looks awesome!!! I’m definitely getting it. The 25% off thing is awesome too because i was planning on getting it tomorrow. I’m sure it will be an amazing VR experience. On my list of launch titles i’m getting!

  • Not that I have to worry my 4tb HDD has the room but how big is the game?

  • I think I will have to pick this up tomorrow looks interesting. Can’t wait to get in VR

  • Great game so far! Too bad it’s the only VR game I’ve played to give me VR sickness. Taking measures to prevent it so I can play for more than 15 minutes at a time without feeling like I’m going to throw up.
