PITTSBURGH, Penn­syl­vania (February 13, 2018) — Today virtual reality (VR) game devel­op­ment company Schell Games made its award-winning VR game I Expect You To Die (IEYTD) available for Microsoft Windows Mixed Reality (MR) headsets. A number of different manu­fac­turers — Samsung, Acer, Dell, HP, and Lenovo — have created headsets for Windows Mixed Reality. With the port of IEYTD to Windows MR, players can now access the game on a variety of platforms, which includes Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, and PlayStation®VR. The game can be purchased on the Windows Store for $24.99 USD.

In addition to the launch of IEYTD on this new platform, the company is also rolling out a newly updated website for the game. The site will feature more content, a search­able news section, a stream­lined media area, and an inte­grated support blog. Users should find the site contains more usable content and more intuitive navi­ga­tion, making it easier to use overall.

In an effort to make the game available to the most VR headset owners possible, we’ve been steadily porting I Expect You To Die to the largest VR platforms,” said Schell Games’ CEO Jesse Schell. With the release of the game on the Windows Mixed Reality headsets, we have now achieved a level of pene­tra­tion that’s sure to reach most players. We hope the owners of Windows MR headsets will enjoy the outra­geous antics of the game, while expe­ri­encing the completely immersive nature of the hardware.”

In August 2017, the company announced I Expect You To Die had surpassed $1 million in revenue across all sales channels, including the Oculus Store, PlaySta­tion® Store, Steam, and Amazon. The game joined a limited number of virtual reality titles who have reached this milestone.

The company recently released a new level for the game called First Class,’ where agents are whisked away on a luxury train to the mountains of India to enjoy an unfor­get­table vacation.” Agents also face four addi­tional levels, including being confined inside their evil nemesis Dr. Zor’s car, trapped high on a window washing platform, submerged deep under­water in a submarine, and cornered inside a booby-trapped hunting lodge. Each level delivers a treach­erous and immersive expe­ri­ence, along with plenty of humor and the occa­sional cigar. A special credits sequence at the beginning of the game readies players for upcoming missions and the dangers that lie ahead.

Created specif­i­cally for VR, I Expect You To Die has been capturing the attention of game enthu­si­asts and media worldwide. The game has been recog­nized time-and-time again as a stand-out expe­ri­ence for its fun escape-the-room mechanics, intuitive gameplay and envi­ron­ments, and the unique challenge it puts upon players to use their smarts to solve missions and survive the myriad ways to die in the game.
