Put another big VR game down on your release calendar. Betheda’s Wolfenstein: Cyberpilot just got a release date, and it’s a few months away.
The series’ first VR spin-off will arrive on July 26th 2019. Word comes by way of a new Steam listing that also confirms it will support HTC Vive and Oculus Rift. The latter hadn’t previously been confirmed, no doubt due to Oculus and Bethesda owner ZeniMax getting into a recently-settled legal scuffle.
There’s also a PlayStation Store listing that confirms the PSVR launch will be on the same day. That’s also the same day as the new co-op shooter, Wolfenstein: Youngblood arrives. That means we’ll probably get another look at it during Bethesda’s upcoming E3 2019 press conference in June.
Cyberpilot is a very different beast to Youngblood, taking you to 1980’s Paris. This time you hack into Nazi war machines and charge through the city streets causing as much havoc as possible. We tried the game when it was announced at E3 last year but we weren’t too taken with it. Whilst it has more polish than a lot of other VR games out there, the lack of threat and variety made it pretty dull to play. Hopefully that’s been changed up for the final release.
The game’s being developed by both series developer Machine Games and Dishonored creator Arkane Studios. What we don’t know is just how much content the full experience will offer. Will we be getting a full campaign or is this more of an experience?
Wolfenstein: Cyberpilot will cost $19.99. If you want to get the full Wolfenstein experience in VR, though, might we recommend this brilliant mod for the original classic?
