Mantis Games and Cronos Interactive have released new gameplay of their upcoming Greek mythology adventure Journey For Elysium. The new trailer showcases even more secrets about exploring the afterlife in the monochromatic black-and-white world Greek underworld. The trailer certainly shows how the game captures the dark and terrifying environment in virtual reality for maximum immersion.

We have already seen some gameplay of Journey For Elysium before and the new trailer simply adds a cherry on the top as it is full of gameplay. The short one-and-a-half-minute gameplay trailer showcases both the water sections where you must row the boat to reach your next destination as well as the normal sections where you will be required to find keys and unlock new mysteries of the underworld.

Check out the new gameplay trailer for Journey For Elysium below.

Journey For Elysium is essentially a story-driven puzzle adventure game that is presented in VR for a more immersive experience. The game is heavily inspired by ancient mythology and one thing we know about Greek mythology is that is full of secrets and not many of those secrets are pleasant. Players play as an unnamed hero in Journey For Elysium who is now dead and is traveling the Underworld on a boat.

However, rowing a boat through Underworld is not that simple as players will need to use all their wits and skills as the game throws increasingly different challenges and twists at them. However, the main attraction is the dark black-and-white art of the game which sets itself apart from traditional VR games. As players journey through the Underworld, they discover more about their past.

Key features of Journey For Elysium include:

  • Puzzles: Journey for Elysium brings back the excitement of classic adventures games of the 90’s and revamps them for a new era. Solve an increasingly complex range of puzzles, challenges, and tests to move the story forward.
  • A lot to discover: immerse yourself in a rich world, grounded between history and myth. Explore breathtaking environments and unravel surprising facts of the Classical antiquity. Connect with your senses to this VR storytelling experience.
  • Mechanics: travel on the river Styx and explore the underworld with the rowing mechanic, the most important traveling method in the game. This natural way of transportation is also very comfortable and immersive.
  • Two modes: when you are not rowing, you can experience two different ways of moving around thanks to the Comfort or Immersive modes.
  • Art style: enjoy the black and white art style inspired by the paintings of Gustave Doré. The high contrast art style fits best in recreating the desired atmosphere of the underworld. In addition, you will find golden highlights here and there, which will guide you further along the way.
