Myst Remake Trailer Sets Release Date for Xbox Game Pass & PC

Cyan Worlds Inc.’s ground-up remake of Myst, the classic ‘90s adventure puzzle game, is ready to leave VR for other, more standard platforms. The Myst remake is coming to Xbox One, Xbox Series X | S, Xbox Game Pass, Epic Games Store, Steam, and GOG with a release date set for August 26, 2021. Cyan Worlds had brought the game to Oculus devices late last year as a VR experience. Now, on supported platforms, you will be able to play the VR version with Valve Index, HTC Vive, Oculus Rift, Oculus Rift S, and Oculus Quest via Oculus Link, or you can play without VR of course. You can watch the Myst remake release date trailer below.

Cyan Worlds, which is responsible for the original game, added more details and goodies to its Myst reimagining, including new art, sounds, and interactions. Plus, those familiar with the original classic can take advantage of an optional puzzle randomizer. The remake further comes with different languages options and accessibility options for every type of player.

If you’re unfamiliar with the mysteries of Myst’s cryptic island, you can read a short summary to prepare yourself:

Journey to Myst island and other stunning locations – called “Ages”- and begin to unravel the mystery you have been thrust into. As you learn what happened on the island, you will discover that you are playing a key role in an epic story whose ending has not yet been written. Explore deeper connections in these magnificent, surreal Ages, uncover a story of ruthless family betrayal, and make choices that will affect both you, and the world of Myst itself.
