We hope you’re still enjoying Resident Evil 7 [Review: 9/10], because it’s another quiet week here on the PlayStation VR front. Just one fully new game graces this week’s release list and one DLC pack. They’re both good, but it’s still overall light on content. If you get into the PS4’s 4.50 system software beta update, though, you can check out 3D Blu-rays in stereoscopic 3D. How about that?
Don’t worry, more PSVR goodness is on the way. Later this month we’ll see Double Fine’s Psychonauts franchise debut on the platform with the release of In The Rhombus Of Ruin, and Sony will hopefully have more news to share when GDC kicks off at the very end of February.
If you missed last week, you can see those new releases here. Also, UploadVR has launched the ‘UploadVR PS VR Community’ on PlayStation 4! Join up, find other gamers to play with, and engage in discussions with them.
Also, don’t forget to check out our list of the 9 Best PlayStation VR Games if you need any extra inspiration. You might well need it this week.
Dexed, from Ninja Theory
Ninja Theory’s first VR release isn’t a sword-slinging epic like Heavenly Sword, DmC, or Hellblade, but we have already had a lot of fun with it on the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift. Dexed is an on-rails shooter, inspired by the classic Panzer Dragoon, and designed to test your dexterity, getting you to hit targets away as quickly as possible with differently colored attacks. Hopefully it’s the first step towards bigger things from the studio, which has plenty of promise.
Recommendation: We reviewed Dexed when it launched on Vive last year and found a fun, if brief, little game. At the low price it’s definitely worth a look if you have two Move controllers and are short on things to play this week, but others should keep on looking.
Resident Evil 7’s Banned Footage Vol. 1 DLC, from Capcom
The game’s only been out less than two weeks and Capcom is already releasing DLC for it, charging you for more content that very likely could have been in the base game. But still — it’s really good. Two of the three new pieces of content fully support PSVR and there’s added replayability with the new game modes.
Recommendation: Hands-on thoughts here. If you enjoyed the core game, then this or the Season Pass are must-buys.
