Fans of the hit TV show Taskmaster should mark their calendars next month.

UK-based studio Scallywag Arcade has finally revealed the release date for Taskmaster VR. The much-anticipated virtual reality adaptation of the series will launch this June 13th. The game can be played on Meta Quest and SteamVR this June 13th, developers said.

"Making the transition from TV to VR, the game offers fans and gamers an opportunity to immerse themselves in one of the world’s most popular comedy shows," they said in a press release.

In Taskmaster VR, players will have the choice to become contestants or even the Taskmaster's Assistant. As contestants, they will be thrown headfirst into a 'series of strange and wonderful tasks.' Each is designed to test their ingenuity and problem-solving skills. And even perhaps even their sanity, according to developers.

On the other hand, they can play as Alex Horne (the show's creator and Taskmaster's Assistant) and build their own task in the game's Creative Mode. With a vast array of tools and in-game objects at their disposal, players can build custom challenges. Ranging from surreal scenarios to recreating iconic locations from the Taskmaster House.

John Keefe, Co-Founder of Scallywag Arcade, said 'VR is the perfect medium to capture Taskmaster's experience.

"We think the show translates brilliantly into VR," said Keefe. "It's the ideal medium for conveying the chaos and creativity of Taskmaster, we can’t wait for fans and players to step inside this world with us," he added.

Taskmaster VR is developed by Scallywag Arcade. They have also teamed up with Avalon, the award-winning production company behind the BAFTA and National Comedy Award-winning show, for its creation.

Meanwhile, publishers have also started accepting pre-orders for the game.

Taskmaster VR will carry a price tag of US$21.99. /
