Transference is a trippy VR game produced by Elijah Wood's studio

Well, let it not be said that Ubisoft didn't have any surprises in store for us during their E3 2017 press conference.

All there is to go on is a brief trailer featuring Elijah Wood, but the game itself is apparently a collaboration between Ubisoft and SpectreVision, and "bridges the gap between movies and games".

There's very little that we know about Transference at this point but one thing's for sure, it looks incredibly creepy and psychological. At SpectreVision, partners Elijah Wood, Daniel Noah, Josh C. Waller & Lisa Whalen, tell character-driven stories tackling emotional and human experiences that challenge conventions.

The official description says players will use techno-psychology to "escape a maze-like puzzle concealing a corrupted truth".

Ubisoft Montreal's The Funhouse studio announced a game called Transference today.

Watch the trailer for Transference, due out for major VR platforms in Spring 2018, and um. try not to worry. Other details are vague for now - it invites players to "enter the home of the mind".
