It looks like a Predator VR game could be coming to PSVR. Not only that, but it might be here very soon.
Exophase, a site that tracks PlayStation’s achievement-based Trophy system, just listed Predator VR. Not only that but there’s a logo too. We can also see the icons for 18 individual trophies that include famous references to the movie series. It is, of course, entirely possible that all of this has been faked, but it doesn’t seem very likely. Oh and, yes, one of the trophies is called ‘Get to the choppa!’ because of course it is.
Our guess is that this is an adaptation of a location-based Predator VR game that was first spotted last year (video below). That was developed by Foxnext, VRsenal and Brookhaven Experiment developer, Phosphor. It seems like a pretty simple wave-based shooter in which you kill Predators. No, you don’t actually play as one, which seems like a bit of a missed opportunity.
The Trophy list itself doesn’t have a Platinum Trophy, which is usually afforded to longer games. That suggests this will be a shorter package.
Or, hey, it could be something entirely new. We’ve reached out to Phosphor to see if we can get any answers. Foxnext has published a few VR apps on PSVR, including Crisis on the Planet of the Apes. We’d also bet that this is coming to PC VR headsets too, but don’t quote us on that
Don’t confuse this with the Predator game that was recently announced during Sony’s State of Play event. That’s a PS4 exclusive but, as far as we know, it doesn’t have any VR content.
