PlayStation VR has just turned one years old today. On the console based VR headset, there’s been over 100 unique titles launched ranging from fun to horrifying experiences. Sony has also sold over 1 million of these headsets which is said to surpass both the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift sales.
To celebrate PS VR’s first anniversary, PlayStation has announced 60 new VR titles to look forward to in 2017 and 2018. Below is the full list of VR titles that’ll be coming to PS VR:
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 December, 5, 2017. You can pre-order the title today for $39.99.
Bethesda is currently finishing up the works to release 3 new VR games into the world: Fallout 4 VR, Skyrim VR, and Doom VFR. Fallout 4 VR and Skyrim VR are readapted from the original game where we’ll experience these adventurous universes in an immersive setting. However, Doom VFR will be offering gamers something a little different.
In the new video that Bethesda has released today, the creators talk in-depth about the upcoming Doom VFR game. Marty Stratton, Game Director of Doom for example explained that you won’t be playing the Doom soldier that we’re all accustomed to. Instead, we’ll be playing as a character named Dr. Peters who is a part of the BFG program.
For those of you unfamiliar with BFG, it’s a program in a research facility where they conduct some crazy tests. At the beginning of the game, you’ll see your conscious self floating while your body is being dismantled. Throughout the progress of the game you’ll be able to put your conscious body into robots and vehicles to take out the enemies.
DOOM VFR is set to release on December 31, 2017 on PS VR. You can pre-order the the game for $29.99.
Gran Turismo has always been a stable game for PlayStation users. It offers realistic driving experiences where you get to drive some of these rare supercars in an environment that’s usually only suited for professional drivers.
In the trailer you can see some of the top professional drivers speak about the experience through the PSVR headset where they mention how incredible of an experience it is. They state that it offers a more realistic line of sight and provides an immersive experience closer to the real thing. As a matter of fact, Jann Mardenborough actually used to be a Gran Turismo gamer before he became a professional driver. He used the game to enhance his driving abilities to get him where he is today.
The trailer also shows a bunch of cars racing against one another when in actuality, you can only play 1 vs 1 for the PSVR version.
Release date for Gran Turismo Sport is set for October 17, 2017. You can pre-order the game for $59.99.
According to the developers Megaton Rainfall fills the market gap of “games that let you control an indestructible superbeing who can fly at supersonic speeds across the Earth facing a global alien invasion and preventing the destruction of one city after another.”
At the beginning of the game you can only roam the Earth, from the bottom of the ocean to the stratosphere, looking for threats. Later, this freedom of movement will increase, letting you fly to the Moon or walk across the surface of the Sun which is quite different from other VR games in the FPS genre.
This sense of freedom will be one of the highlights in Megaton Rainfalls, as well as the sense of scale of the landscapes, which is said to “really shine in VR mode.”
The giant motherships that appear in the game may not be as dangerous as the smaller enemy vessels according to the creators. With smaller vessels you’ll have a harder time aiming and creating collateral damage in the process of eliminating the threat.
The game is set to release on October 17, 2017. You can pre-order the game today but the link seems to be down for some apparent reason.
