Lose yourself in a futuristic world.

Augmented Empire, a virtual reality RPG with a cyberpunk setting, launches July 13 exclusively on Samsung Gear VR.

The 10+ hour adventure takes place in New Savannah, an island “neo-noir city divided into three tiers by the Citizen Grade System.” Voice talent for the game comes by the way of Doug Cockle, the voice behind Geralt in the Witcher series, Kate Mulgrew of Star Trek: Voyager and Orange Is the New Black, Nick Frost of Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz, and Garrick Hagon who played Biggs in the original Star Wars.

Gameplay features “6 upgradable characters” across over 60 different environments. Gear VR controller support and gamepad support is also included.

Augmented Empire comes to Samsung VR July 13 for $9.99USD, £7.99 UK and €9.99 EU.

Augmented Empire should scratch your VR RPG itch, at least for now. The recently revealed Skyrim VR for PlayStation VR, announced during E3 2017, should take up the VR RPG heavy lifting when it releases in November.
