17-Bit’s upcoming survival VR game, Song in the Smoke, still doesn’t have a release date. But it does have plenty of new footage to take in over on Twitter.
Over the course of the past month, the developer has been sharing a handful of gameplay clips from the title. Song in the Smoke is designed to be an ecosystem-driven survival game in which, yes, players will hunt for food and defend themselves against vicious animals, but those animals may also react differently depending on features like how hungry they are.

There’s also melee combat which you’ll need if animals get a little too close for comfort.
