Ubisoft’s Werewolves Within is an online multiplayer VR ‘social deduction’ game

    
20

Ubisoft’s newest game isn’t exactly an MMORPG, but it is a VR multiplayer online title that revolves around what the company is calling “social deduction.” In Werewolves Within, gamers will play as villagers in the medieval town of Gallowston who argue, compel, and convince each other to ferret out — and vote to destroy — the werewolves hidden among them. Wheee! Let’s say it’s the graphics of Free Realms with the backstabby cutthroatiness of EVE Online and the popcorn amusement of Survivor. The intro vid’s below.

Oh my lord.  It’s Werewolf/One Night as an MMO.  All-of-my-nope.  Even if I wanted to play it, there’s a perfectly functional meatspace version.

vicariousfan vinicitur Flimflamberge  Yeah, even with friends and family the people who don’t know each other quite as well have problems (at least when the person isn’t typical with non-verbal expression.)  It’s really something that you need to know people for!

vinicitur Flimflamberge the bigger problem is that in Werewolf you need to go off of body languange as well something this game will not be able to do.

Social deduction isn’t really Ubisoft’s term, it’s a genre of tabletop games. The Resistance, Avalon, Battlestar Galactica, Saboteur, Secret Hitler…

Flimflamberge Seriously I have no idea what they are thinking. You can buy werewolf/one night ultimate werewolf games for about 30 bucks. But they want us to buy an overly expensive VR setup to have the same experience we could have around a table with friends?

HAHAHA!!!

Caec You do realize people cant always be driving over to eachother’s house every evening hanging out? Like they have lives, and just dont always feel like doing that. It’s like saying “Well dont play video games with friends online, because you could be playing a board game with them in person”
