Kona, the open-world mystery thriller released in 2017, has been ported over to VR.
If you haven't yet had a chance to play through Kona on a standard monitor (colloquially known as the pancake version), it's the story of Carl Faubert, a Korean War veteran who's been hired to investigate some shady goings-on in the barren, cold land of Northern Canada. Since its release into Early Access in 2016 and full release in 2017, Kona has racked up an overall "Very Positive" score on Steam, with most people agreeing that it's well worth the money if only a bit short on content. We even covered an early version of the standard Kona, stating that "Kona mixes exploration, puzzle solving, and story to create a compelling narrative."
Kona has now been reworked to include VR support, officially working on Oculus Rift and HTC Vive and not seeming to work at all on Windows Mixed Reality (WMR). This DLC doesn't come free, costing about $5 for those who own the standard game already and about $16 for a complete bundle. Let's take a look at whether or not Kona VR is worth the extra money based on how well it performs in VR.
