It was nearly three years ago now that we reported Disaster Report 4 would include a PSVR mode. The survival series has a bit of a niche audience and, though it released in Japan soon after, we’ve been waiting to hear about a western release ever since.
Well, today we can finally confirm it’s happening.
Disaster Report 4: Summer Memories (I still love that name) is coming to PS4, Switch and PC in early 2020. NIS American is publishing the game in the US, though it’s not officially confirmed for the EU or other regions yet. It also appears that the VR support will be exclusive to the PS4 version of the game, despite releasing on PC too.
Disaster Report games are all about surviving natural disasters in urban areas. From what we can tell, the PSVR support isn’t the main game but instead a side experience played in first-person. You make your way through a crumbling city as an earthquake brings it down around you. We’d expect this to be more of an experiential piece than a full ‘game’ as such, but it could be fun all the same. Remember this is a translation of a 2016-era game and VR designed has come some way since then.
This might not be won to rush out and buy, then, but we’ll be eager to give the full thing a look. It looks like it players to the platform’s strengths; big things shaking and falling and making you scream. What more could you ask for?
