Last week’s PlayStation Blog suggested that the PSVR port of 3rd Eye Studios’ Downward Spiral: Horus Station would be releasing this week. Well, you actually have to wait just a little while longer.
Downward Spiral is now arriving on September 18th with full (and optional) support for PSVR. The console version of the game will support the DualShock 4 and PlayStation Move controllers and will be released for $19.99 / €14.99 / £14.99.
The game is a sci-fi adventure in which you find yourself on an abandoned space station orbiting an alien planet. You make your way through the facility in zero gravity, trying to find out what happened to the crew and fighting off mechanical enemies. The game’s got full co-op support (though works great in single-player) and also comes with competitive multiplayer to boot.
We really, really like Downward Spiral, so we’re actually glad it’s not releasing in the same week as Firewall Zero Hour and other big PSVR titles. The game’s got a great control scheme (which will be implemented for the first time on PSVR unlike on Rift where there’s also Lone Echo) and an unbeatable atmosphere. If you need a break from all the military action in three weeks time you should absolutely pick it up.
