We’re doing a recap post of all the PlayStation VR-announcements, so let’s get to it. First off, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR is coming to the PlayStation VR. You can already pre-order it here before it launches in November. (The game’s almost six years old, and Bethesda still finds ways to sell it: after the PS3/X360/PC original, Special Edition on PS4/X1/PC, and now the Switch and the PSVR is next…)
Superhot also moves to the PlayStation VR, which is surprising, as, outside the X1 and PC ports, we had no idea about it moving to the PlayStation 4. Superhot VR will launch this summer. The visuals are weird, but the game is enjoyable.
Next up is Monster of the Deep: Final Fantasy XV. There was already a PSVR-experience announced. Could it be that? Still, you get to… go fishing with Noctis and the others on PlayStation VR. The release date is in September.
Now for the new announcements: GameTrust and Playful Corporation announced Star Child, with no release date at the moment.
Sony and Supermassive Games (Until Dawn!) came up with The Inpatient.
Quoting Sony: „The game is set in the Blackwood Sanatorium, over 60 years before Until Dawn. With deep immersion that places YOU in the game, you take on the role of an amnesiac inpatient. Over the course of the game, you 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.” No release date is known at the moment.
The weird thing is that Supermassive Games announced another PlayStation VR title! Bravo Team will launch this year. Quoting Sony: „Developed with PS VR Aim Controller in mind, Bravo Team, drops the player into a fictional modern-day Eastern European city. When an escort mission goes wrong and results in the President’s assassination, a country threatens to tear itself apart… and you along with it. Teamwork is at the core of the game. Bravo Team has been developed to allow both single player and online two player co-op. The player and a teammate must use everything at your disposal to survive.”
Polyarc announced Moss. Quoting them: „Moss is a single-player action-adventure puzzle game and new IP tailor-made for the VR platform. It takes the classic components of a great game—such as compelling characters, gripping combat, and captivating world exploration—and combines them with the exciting opportunities of virtual reality. The result is a fully interactive and immersive player experience set in an engaging fantasy world.”
One more thing. SIE Japan Studio’s and Acquire’s No Heroes Allowed! VR is coming to North America and Europe, but a release date was not announced. An overview, via Sony: „Become the God of Destruction in a unique real-time strategy game utilizing PlayStation VR. Breed monsters to invade human territories, seen in a diorama-like view through the eyes of the God of Destruction. Together with Badman and Badmella, work towards total world domination.[…] As a God, the player must maintain an ecosystem through a food chain of breeding weaker monsters to feed invading monsters. The player can interfere with this chain of life and death to raise monsters however they like in their attempts to conquer the world.”
