Sony has been doing a great job in creating hype around their relatively new VR headset, PSVR. So far this year, we’ve seen tons of new VR games for the PlayStation VR including Skyrim VR and DOOM VFR. Skyrim VR has actually been such a big hit recently that it topped in sales over the likes of the Nintendo switch version of the game and Destiny 2.
Next year Sony has promised us that we’ll be seeing even more VR content. In the trailer below, you’ll see a mixture of newly released VR games and upcoming VR titles in 2018.
Upcoming PlayStation VR Games in December of 2017
Golem is an upcoming PS VR exclusive that places you inside a storybook world where you see through the eyes of over stone creatures. You’ll take control of these creatures in order to discover the connection between your family and the mysterious Endless City you’re in.
Along the journey, you’ll discover hidden treasures and valuable artifacts while battling the Silent Watch using your melee combat skills. You’ll also run into bands of hostile golems which you must defeat.
Golem is set to release on December 31, 2017. However, you cant pre-order the game just yet.
Here are some of the highlighted PlayStation VR games that’ll be releasing some time next year.
Bravo Team by Supermassive Games is set in a fictional modern day Eastern European city. When your escort mission goes wrong and results in the President’s assassination, a country threatens to tear itself apart…and your team along with it.
- TEAMWORK: Teamwork is at the core of the game. Bravo Team has been developed to allow both single player and online 2 player co-op. Player co-operation is key. Verbal communication between players is essential to make the decisions you need to survive and avoid (or navigate) enemy detection.
- INTENSE IMMERSIVE ACTION: Bravo Team takes you on a heart-pumping journey of intense combat and split-second decision making. With the feel of an action movie, Bravo Team offers exciting combat situations, multiple scenario outcomes and a seamless, continuous environment to create a wholly immersive experience.
- TOTAL CONTROL: Bravo Team puts you directly into the action. You’ll need to lean round corners to take out targets or duck for cover if under fire. You’ll raise the aim controller to view through the iron sight or hold above your head to blind fire.
- DECISIONS UNDER FIRE: You’ll make constant split-second tactical decisions about when to take cover, when to reload and when to engage. Should you lay down suppressing fire or try a different route? Who takes that new weapon? Players will need to think fast and act quickly to survive.
Release date is set for March 6, 2018. You can pre-order the title today for $39.99.
This particular title is an action-adventure puzzle game coming to Sony PlayStation VR. The story begins with a mysterious book in a grand, vaulted library that opens and transports the reader to a vast, magical world. You will be playing as a heroic character named Quill who is a brave mouse.
Quill is on a journey in a remote forest settlement who’s fated to be the key in a much larger story. You’ll be guiding Quill while also directly manipulating the field of play as your own character. Mutual communication and shared victories strengthen their connection to one another.
Moss is set to release some time in February of 2018. You can pre-order the game today for $29.99 on the PlayStation store.
In The Inpatient, you’ll be discovering who you are before it’s all too late. This PS VR exclusive title is set in the Blackwood Sanatorium taking place 60 years prior to the hit title, ‘Until Dawn.’
Players will be taking on the role of an amnesiac inpatient who must find out who you are and why you are in the Sanatorium. With a branching narrative, and different endings; every choice you make can drastically affect the way the game plays out.
Choices and consequences are integral to the gameplay. Your life (and the lives of those around you), are dramatically affected by the decisions you make.
Uncover your memories
The story isn’t just about scares; you’ll discover a rich backstory and uncover a conspiracy. Vivid flashback memories that you discover throughout the game are key to understanding why you are in the Sanatorium.
The Inpatient is set to release on January 23, 2018. You can pre-order the game today for $39.99.
