You may think that this week is all about the launch of PSVR2. And you’d be right – even as Xbox gamers we’re excited to see that land. But there are some games bucking the trend, breaking out of the VR scene to launch on Xbox and Nintendo Switch. One of those is Intruders: Hide and Seek. 

Originally releasing on PC and PlayStation, making the most of the VR possibilities that those formats allowed, it’s now time for Intruders: Hide and Seek to go in search of other markets, namely those of Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S and Nintendo Switch, as Tessera Studios and Deadalic Entertainment bring their first-person stealth thriller to a new set of gamers. 

Intruders: Hide and Seek sees you taking on the role of Ben, a thirteen year-old kid who has found his family to have been taken hostage. Ben is on the run, looking to hide from any intruders until he works out how to make safe his family. 

What this means in real terms is that you need to help navigate Ben through the environments at hand, dodging captors and keeping himself safe. We can see that working brilliantly in VR and fully understand how playing through Ben’s eyes would have been a stunner. But here we are, VR-free, with release on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S and Nintendo Switch. 

If you’re intrigued as to how it plays, you’ll need to hold tight for our review, but the key features reveal themselves as…

  • A realistic and nerve-wrecking hostage drama
  • Immersion – experience the game through the eyes of thirteen year-old Ben
  • Plan your next steps carefully – otherwise they might be your last
  • Four intense hours of exciting and breathtaking suspense

You’ll find Intruders: Hide and Seek hiding out on the usual digital stores. It’s on PlayStation and PC (Steam) already, but also on the Xbox Store for Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S, as well as the Nintendo eShop for Switch folk.
