PlayStation VR (PSVR) is having a quiet week, but it’s not without its curiosities. We’ve got three pretty obscure titles from Asian developers this week, and they’re a mixed bag in terms of quality. You could quite happily sit this week out but if you’re dying for some more VR goodness then read on.
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.
Dying: Reborn PSVR, from Oasis Games
Dying: Reborn PSVR is a slice of a full horror game for PlayStation 4 that doesn’t support VR. Developer Oasis Games has cut out a few sections of the original and refitted them to give you a taste of the escape room-style challenges. There’s about an hours’ worth of gameplay as you make your way through an abandoned hotel, finding out who kidnapped you and why.
Recommendation: You should pass on this. Premium demos are not good practice for VR. Here’s our full review.
Unearthing Mars, from Winking Entertainment
We’ve been following Unearthing Mars for some time. It’s a new adventure game that sees players travel to the red planet to discover its mysteries, mixing a variety of play styles. You’ll use PlayStation Move controllers to pilot ships and use weapons in what looks to be a brief experience that could be worth looking into for people wanting more immersive PSVR experiences.
Recommendation: We haven’t gone hands-on with the final build yet, but it certainly looks promising.
Cyber Danganronpa VR, from Spike Chunsoft
The Danganronpa franchise might not look like the best fit for VR, but Spike Chunsoft disagrees. The developer has brought its cult hit to PSVR as a small taster experience that shows what a full game could look like on Sony’s headset.
Recommendation: If you’re a fan of the franchise, don’t miss this since it’s free!
