Ustwo Games, the company behind perspective-based puzzle game Monument Valley, has confirmed that its follow up game ‘Land’s End’ will be available from the end of next month.

The title is Ustwo’s first full VR game, and uses a gaze-based mechanic for exploration and puzzles across the five in-game worlds. Given that it’s available exclusively for the Samsung Gear VR headset, you will need a Samsung Galaxy S6 or S6 Edge to play it.

“The landscapes in the game were inspired by beautiful, isolated regions from around the world, from the soaring cliffs of northern Europe to the harsh beauty of the Sahara, and neolithic sites and artifacts such as Stonehenge,” the company says.

Land’s End will be available to download from October 30 via Oculus Home.
