The 'Lord of the Rings' star struggled to read the autocue as he spoke on stage at the Ubisoft conference at the gaming expo to unveil the trailer for the virtual reality horror game made under his SpectreVision.

Elijah, 37, said: "My name is Elijah Wood, co-founder of SpectreVision. Though we're known for our film content we're also avid gamers and the opportunity to partner with Ubisoft was something we had to be a part of.

"Have you ever dreamed of entering someone else's consciousness, exploring their darkest thoughts and most intimate secrets?

"In 'Transference' ... with 'Transference' we're bringing a..."

A stuttering Elijah then looked right into camera and exclaimed: "NOO!"

Laughing, he continued: "With 'Transference' we're bringing a first person exploration game into a chilling new dimension."

The terrifying trailer shows a father talking to his son, apologising for what he has done.

The story follows troubled scientist Raymond Hayes who experiments with brain data collected from himself and his family.

Players will shift between the perspectives of Raymond, his wife Katherine, and their son Benjamin to recover the fragmented family memories and attempt to piece together their mystery.

The game combines the narrative techniques of a horror film, with the interactivity of video games, meaning the player must solve puzzles and gather information in order to escape.

'Transference' will be available in full VR on PSVR, Oculus Rift, and HTC Vive.

The game will be also be playable on PS4, Xbox One, and PC when it launches in the autumn.
