Sometimes you don’t realise quite how big of a week it’s been until you sit back and take a look. We got updates on a lot of major VR projects this week, and there were some big releases and surprising new reveals too. Dig in.
Reveals And News
Sony revealed a handful of new PSVR titles this week, all of which look pretty promising. Over on the news side, we got a fresh look at The Gallery’s anticipated second episode, and we heard that Fallout 4 VR will be at E3 again with a demo that will apparently blow your mind. Say your goodbyes. Obduction is one on Vive, too, but there’s some issues.
After a long wait, we finally know when Other Ocean’s hugely anticipated VR debut, Giant Cop, will be releasing: March 30th on Rift. Look for Vive and PSVR versions to follow on after. Sticking with PSVR, we got a date for Jeff Minter’s first VR game, Polybius, which hits on April 28th. The PSVR version of Fated: The Silent Oath will be here next week too.
The week kicked off with a deeper look at what Gunfire Games had brought from its previous VR titles into its newest Rift exclusive, From Other Suns. We also got a glimpse at the surprising new release of a Ghostbusters VR game, the next entry in the Viral series, and Blade & Soul. You definitely shouldn’t miss our hands-on with Downward Spiral, though, this is a surprisingly compelling adventure.
PlayStation VR got a Ghostbusters game out of the blue this week, but we knew the Rock Band VR was coming for a long time. Over on Vive, there’s the usually flood of new apps to check out but don’t miss Obduction.
