Superhot VR is undoubtedly one of the best shooters on the Oculus Rift but it’s remained a timed exclusive to that headset since December of last year. That will be changing in the near future, though.
The developers behind the popular VR game rounded out last week by dropping a rather obvious hint: a tweet with the game’s orange logo background holding a flashing HTC Vive logo, complete with the word “soon”. It doesn’t take a genius to figure out what that means. No other details have been confirmed so far, but expect to be playing the game on your Vive (hopefully) later this year.

That’s great news for Vive owners, as Superhot remains one of the most enthralling examples of how to mix VR and shooters together to create something unique. In the game, which is a spin-off of a traditional 2D shooter, time moves only when you do. If you stop moving, so do the enemies and bullets around you. With limited ammo and weapons you have to carefully take down each opponent in a level, with just a single bullet touching your body meaning a restart.
We loved the game when it came out, though it was a little short on content. Fortunately it’s since been updated with new challenges that will give it even more value for money when it comes to Vive.
For all you PSVR owners, we sadly don’t have an update for you today. There’s always hope, though.
