Get an early taste of Ubisoft Montreal’s psychological thriller Transference with the exclusive PS4 demo, out now

In prequel to the main game, take the Walter Test Case and attempt to escape a corrupted mind

In Transference, the minds of the Hayes family are trapped in a corrupted simulation, and you’re their only hope of escape. The full experience launches on 18th September, but all of you PlayStation owners out there can get an early taste of this psychological thriller with a free demo available exclusively on PS4.


Dubbed The Walter Test Case, the demo is a prequel that takes place several years before the events of Transference.

Enter the experiment that laid the foundation for the events that followed. Explore the digitally recreated memories of a PTSD sufferer, where you’ll try to unearth clues by exploring a haunted apartment and solve mind-bending puzzles.


Transference is a collaboration between Ubisoft Montreal and SpectreVision, a production company founded by Elijah Wood. It’s an experience designed to immerse you in believable but twisted environments, full of objects to interact with and dangers seemingly born from glitches in the simulation.


Like the full game, you’ll also be able to immerse yourself in The Walter Test Case with PS VR – although if that’s too close for comfort, you can also play without a headset.


However you approach it, The Walter Test Case is a chance to get a sense for what lies in store when Transference arrives on PS4 and PSVR. Start sharpening your investigative skills now – they might be the key to survival this September.

Going to test this one asap

Horror games in VR are not fun. I can imagine a rather unstable person absolutely flipping out playing these things.

Too many horror games on VR

Hhorror games In VR are fantastic. I can honestly say you are wrong. Also no where near enough horror games on PSVR

Its a very short demo, but what was it?
