If you’re in the UK, you know this weekend is the last bank holiday for a while. That means it’s the last chance to plan a lengthy three-day break and then look back at it all next Tuesday and realize you wasted everything unsuccessfully trying to speedrun Superhot VR. That is unless you head to this weekend’s Insomnia 63 event, where there’s a bunch of new PSVR games making their UK debut.
Beat Saber, the incredibly popular rhythm action game from Beat Games, is going to be playable at the Birmingham-based show this weekend, for example. As far as we know, this is the first chance people in Europe have had to go hands-on with the console version of the game, which is pretty funny seeing as I just got back from Gamescom and pretty much all Sony was showing on headsets there was Firewall and Astro Bot (which are both at Insomnia too). There’s some snaps of the stand below.
As you can see Sony is also showing flashy puzzling tribute Tetris Effect at the show and Sony London’s anticipated shooter, Blood & Truth is there too. It’s a good chance to try out Firewall before it launches next week, at least.
Beat Saber PSVR was announced back at E3 earlier this year, though we don’t know when it’s launching yet. In the game, you wield two lightsaber-like swords, slashing colored notes that arrive in time with a beat. We love it, you love it, and PSVR owners are almost certainly going to love it too. Beat Games is promising a perfect port of the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive game complete with PS4 Pro support and even exclusive features.
