While we still don’t have a clear picture of the extent of titles coming to the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive powered by Valve’s SteamVR, Sony continues to promote a growing slate of games for PlayStation VR.
At the PlayStation Experience event this weekend a bunch of trailers debuted for newly announced PS VR games, including Rez Infinite and a new Psychonauts game. The games join earlier announced titles like Dreams, Tekken 7, Robinson: The Journey, Gran Turismo: Sport, EVE Valkyrie, The London Heist, The Walk, Megaton Rainfall, Final Fantasy, Until Dawn: Rush of Blood, Battlezone and RIGS.
In addition, trailers below show more games including Job Simulator, Golem, Eagle Flight, The Modern Zombie Taxi Co. and 100 ft. Robot Golf. We still don’t have a clear picture of which games will definitely arrive when PS VR does in the first half of 2016 and not all the trailers below give a clear picture of how the games will feel inside VR. Nevertheless, Sony’s efforts to create a robust console ecosystem for VR games continues to get more exciting.
Check out the trailers:
Golem is described as being the “experience of being a giant stone golem exploring an abandoned city. However, in our game you do not play as a single golem, but as someone with the ability to control golems, seeing through their eyes and directing their movements.”
This suggestion at the end of this trailer of flying alongside a friend is a really fun idea.
The Modern Zombie Taxi Co.
This game began as “as a fun VR demo with the player driving a car around filled up with rag dolls” and evolved into the player taking a zombie game where the player takes “on the task of driving these brain-eating (and tea drinking) bodies to their chosen destination.”
Sometimes the premise of a game doesn’t make sense, but playing golf as a giant robot in virtual reality instantly sounds like a good idea. I don’t quite understand the robot fighting seen in this trailer though. I just want to knock a ball off a skyscraper and see it bounce into the hole.
One of the first cross-platform VR games to make use of hand controllers, Job Simulator from Owlchemy Labs is officially coming to the Oculus Rift, SteamVR and PlayStation VR.
This remake of a Dreamcast classic mixes insane visuals with pulsating music in a game that according to our Editor in Chief, Will Mason, is as crazy as it looks.
