Ubisoft's making multiplayer VR game Werewolves Within

Watch dogs.

Ubisoft has announced Werewolves Within, a multiplayer VR game where you must deduce which one of your companions is actually a beast in disguise.

Quick rounds will match between five and eight players together - one of which has been designated the werewolf. Other players will be given the role of humans with special abilities to help work out the werewolf's identity.

You'll also be able to glean clues from positional tracking technology and animations which change based upon "voice inflection analysis".

Werewolves Within will launch on "major VR platforms" this autumn, which sounds like PlayStation VR, Vive and Oculus Rift.

It's the third VR project to be announced by Ubisoft, after aerial exploration title Eagle Flight for PlayStation VR, and this morning's announcement of an Assassin's Creed movie tie-in experience.
