'Myst' Comes to PC, Xbox One And Xbox Series X|S Next Week - Screens & Trailer

by Rainier on Aug. 17, 2021 @ 12:07 p.m. PDT

Built from the ground up to play in either VR or flatscreen PC, Cyan has reimagined Myst and created the version fans have been asking for.

Myst debuted in 1993 to critical and popular acclaim and went on to become the best-selling PC game of the 20th century. 

Visit the starkly beautiful Myst island, eerily tinged with mystery and shrouded in intrigue. Explore the deeper connections and uncover a story of ruthless family betrayal.

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

Including new art, sound, interactions, and even optional puzzle randomization, the modern, definitive Myst is fully redesigned and created from the ground up using Unreal Engine. Many puzzles were re-imagined and engineered to include both enhanced accessibility and optional puzzle randomization for players who have played before! 

Once more you can be a part of the surrealistic adventure that will become your world! 

The VR experience includes both Free Roam and Teleport modes, and supports Valve Index, HTC Vive, Oculus Rift, Rift S, and Quest via Oculus Link.

Additionally, Myst includes many “comfort level” features for both new and experienced VR users, including the option to enable smooth or snap turning, quick travel up stairs and ladders, vertical height quantization, and more!

Crossbuy will be enabled on the Oculus Store for Myst, so users who purchased the Quest Platform version will have access to the PC version on the desktop Oculus App, and vice-versa.

Myst is coming to PC (Steam, GOG and Epic Games Store, with support for additional VR hardware), MacOS and Gamepass (Xbox One, Xbox Series, and Windows) on August 26, 2021 for $29.99, with additional platforms at a later date.
