In I Expect You To Die 3, players must outwit their most cunning adversary to date in this spy-themed VR puzzle series. Players will experience brand-new missions, wield complex gadgets, visit action-packed locales, engage with robots, harness the power of telekinesis, and wear custom attire as they dive back into the world of espionage. 

Your skills, and survival rate, make you one of our most capable agents, and you’ve resurfaced right on time. Zoraxis, our sworn enemy, has something new up its sleeve and we fear dire consequences if we don’t stop its diabolical schemes. We’re counting on you to throw a wrench into whatever evil is brewing. In this escape-the-room VR puzzler, you need to protect the Agency and the world as we know it, without losing your wits…or your life!

The three-quel is full of the classic I Expect You To Die hilarity. From cheeky jokes to multiple outrageous puzzle solutions, players familiar and new to the franchise will enjoy tactical challenges in tandem with light-hearted humor. 

Schell Games announced I Expect You To Die 3 will launch this Summer on Meta Quest and this Fall on SteamVR headsets.

Eager Agents can pre-order the game now for a 10% discount on the Meta Quest Store.

In a new trailer debuted during the Meta Quest Gaming Showcase, Schell Games revealed Dr. Roxana Prism, a genius inventor with a robot obsession, as the lead antagonist in I Expect You To Die 3.

“As virtual reality games continue to grow in presence and popularity, we’re grateful for partners like Meta who provide opportunities for developers to innovate and showcase their experiences,” said Jesse Schell, CEO of Schell Games. “Our team is passionate about developing fantastic virtual reality experiences. Whether it’s exterminating deadly vampires in Silent Slayer or saving the world one mission at a time in the I Expect You To Die (IEYTD) series, we strive to immerse players in unforgettable virtual worlds.”

In I Expect You To Die 3: Cog in the Machine, players encounter Dr. Prism, her sidekick Robutler, and her various robot creations as they work through complex puzzles. A former inventor for the Agency, Dr. Prism is best known for developing the signature telekinetic implant agents use in the field. Motivated to prove robots can be better secret agents than humans, she joined the Zoraxis Corporation, where she works to foil the Agency’s plans with her machines.

Dr. Prism is voiced by the talented Daisy Lightfoot, known for voicing Shuri in Marvel’s animated series Marvel's Avengers, LEGO Marvel Super Heroes: Black Panther - Trouble in Wakanda, and Marvel Rising: Operation Shuri.

“We really tried to fill the characters in I Expect You To Die 3 with personality to enrich the player experience throughout the game and pull agents into that world of danger and espionage. The writing combined with our actors’ incredible vocal performances hopefully creates a unique experience that is made even more immersive in VR,” said Jared Mason, Narrative Director for IEYTD1 and IEYTD3 and voice of The Handler. “Voicing the Handler in this series is so much fun, and being able to shape the story across the franchise has been one of the highlights of my career. We can’t wait for new and returning Agents from all over the world to step into the role of an elite (or disastrous) spy.”

Key Features:

  • Race to Beat Dr. Zor: Your assignments take place in some of the most dangerous locales to date, and each one will require your most advanced covert agent skills. These fast-paced missions will leave you breathless.
  • Meet a Brilliant Mastermind: A brand new villain will test even the most seasoned agents, and it is up to you to stay alive long enough to defeat this new threat.
  • Go Undercover in Style: Show off your style (undercover, of course) with an imaginative array of Agency-approved attire. Look smart and choose your hat and gloves before embarking on your top-secret missions.

I Expect You To Die 3: Cog In the Machine will be available to Agents across the globe on Meta Quest 2 in Summer 2023, followed by PC (Steam) in Fall 2023.
