About

Even the dead are terrified inside the Barclay Mansion. As a Wraith, unravel its secrets and hide from the sinister Spectres trailing your footsteps. Wraith: The Oblivion – Afterlife is a first-person virtual reality horror exploration game set in the World of Darkness universe.

Become a Wraith

The player will take on the role as a spirit of the dead, holding specific Wraith powers at their disposal that will grow during the game and grant access to new areas:

  • Wraithgrasp – Allows the player to manipulate objects from a distance and change the environment around them.
  • Sharpened Senses – Helps the player pick up distant whispers or track the movement of other spirits.
  • Insubstantiality – Gives the player the power to walk through solid walls.

The Barclay Mansion

Afterlife plays against a backdrop of modern Hollywood decadence and occult research:

  • The player will get to explore the massive Barclay Mansion to gradually reveal its terrifying history, and the reason behind their own death.
  • The mansion is filled with apparitions and sinister Spectres trailing the players’ footsteps, each with its own background story and with a connection to the bigger mystery.
  • In order to stay hidden and find out the truth, players will need to use stealth as well as objects and clues in the environment.

A World of Dark Secrets

Afterlife shares the same universe as Vampire: The Masquerade and Werewolf: The Apocalypse, where monsters are real and live among us:

  • For the first time in history, the player will get to experience a World of Darkness game from the Wraith’s perspective.
  • As a Wraith, death is not the end. The player is caught between this life and the next, accompanied by their Shadow, a manifestation of their dark subconscious.
  • The Shadowlands are the reflection of the daylight world: a place where the dead walk unseen, side by side with the living.
