Cyan Worlds announced that RIVEN (1997), the sequel to iconic adventure game MYST (1993), is getting VR support when the remake launches later this year. The studio has also now confirmed that it’s launching on Quest in addition to SteamVR headsets.

Update (May 14th, 2024): Cyan Worlds says RIVEN will indded launch on the Quest 2 and Quest 3 as previously speculated, which will come in addition to SteamVR headsets, and both on Windows and Mac.

There’s no update yet when to expect the game’s launch. The game’s Quest Store page indicates however we should expect it sometime in “Summer 2024,” so we may be in for a release date fairly soon. The original article announcing RIVEN’s VR support follows below:

Original Article (March 19th, 2024): The studio today revealed it’s releasing both flatscreen and VR modes sometime in 2024 when the game releases, having just updated its store page on Steam (also available on GOG) to include mention of VR headset support.

There’s no word on whether we can expect Cyan to build a Quest-native app as well (see update), but at least we can confirm it’s getting SteamVR support.

The studio has been an active developer of VR modes for a number of its games, including the Quest-native version of MYST (2020)Firmament (2023), and its first VR-supported game, Obduction (2016).

The remake is said to blend the original’s intricate puzzle-solving with modern technology, offering stunning visuals and a fully explorable 3D world—which is in part thanks to being built in Unreal Engine 5.

We still only have a teaser to salivate to, although as soon as we see a proper gameplay trailer, you’ll be the first to know.
