A year after launching, PlayStation has confirmed that a heap of PlayStation VR games are set to come in the next 6 months.
It’s been a quiet few months for PlayStation VR after an absolute influx of games released alongside it, but some real heavy hitters are set to release in the remainder of 2017 and into the start of next year.
These games include Skyrim VR, DOOM, Gran Turismo Sport and some epic experiences from SuperMassive Games (AKA the legends behind Until Dawn). There’s a lot here that I’m excited for.
Gran Turismo Sport (available from 18 October 2017)
Each release in the Gran Turismo series becomes the new benchmark in realistic auto-racing games, and that bar is about to be raised – big time. With PS VR, you’ll feel like you’re in the driver’s seat, increasing the immersion to new heights.
Stifled (available from 31 October 2017)
Stifled is a unique horror game where you can only reveal your surroundings by creating sound waves – either by throwing nearby objects or speaking into the headset’s built-in mic. Keep in mind, however, that any noise you make may also reveal your location to the grotesque creatures that are lurking in the darkness.
The Inpatient (available from 22 November 2017)
The premise is the stuff of nightmares: you’re a patient in the Sanatorium and suffering from amnesia, your main goal is to unearth your memories-to discover who you are and why you’re there. However, you’ll also reveal a conspiracy at the facility that complicates your efforts to get your life back.
Bravo Team (available from 6 December 2017)
Supermassive Games (Tumble VR, Until Dawn: Rush of Blood) is creating an intense first-person shooter for single player or online two player co-op. The setting is a fictional Eastern European city and after the president is assassinated, teamwork will be essential for you to survive. Bravo Team will make you feel like you’re in an action movie.
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR (available in 2017)
One of the most popular and ambitious open-world action RPGs ever made will now be even more immersive, thanks to a reimagining in PS VR. You’re the Dragonborn, and you’ll need to master swords and spells to survive the many threats you’ll encounter. Skyrim VR includes the critically acclaimed core game as well as the official add-ons: Dawnguard, Heathfire and Dragonborn, as well as multiple controller options.
Moss (available in 2017)
One of E3 2017’s brightest stars was Quill, a young mouse who awakens an ancient magic and sets off on an epic journey to save her uncle. The world of Moss is a gorgeous expanse filled with myth and magic, but there’s little time to savour the view. You’ll need to explore your surroundings and literally manipulate the world as you do whatever you can to assist Quill on her adventure.
Doom VFR (available in 2017)
You’re the last known survivor of a demon attack on a Martian research facility. Well, you’re the last human survivor, and you’ll have plenty of opportunity to meet some of the other survivors. id Software’s classic franchise levels up to give players a fully immersive experience.
