PGW: Games coming to PlayStation VR
It's Paris Games Week, and Sony has already made a slew of announcements pertaining to PlayStation VR. With the head-mounted display slated for a release in the first half of 2016, Sony has been slowly revealing games coming to PlayStation VR at various expos and conferences. Here are the games we know will be coming to PlayStation VR next year and soon after.
Gran Turismo Sport
While discussing plans for the long-awaited PS4 GT title, creator Kazunori Yamauchi announced that developer Polyphony is working on bringing Gran Turismo Sport to PlayStation VR. A release window has yet to be revealed for Gran Turismo Sport, but a beta is planned for early 2016.
Robinson: The Journey
The name of the game: don't get squashed. At least, that's what we were told in the concept trailer for Robinson: The Journey. Crytek's upcoming VR game seems to take place in prehistoric times, wherein the player is guided by a floating AI through a herd of dinosaurs. Yeah--dinosaurs. Not much else is known about this game, except that it will be premiering PlayStation VR.
Until Dawn: Rush of Blood
Unlike Supermassive's sleeper-hit title released earlier this year, Rush of Blood is a first-person horror game which will take players through a haunted roller coaster ride that's set in the Until Dawn universe. New shooting mechanics will be implemented into the experience, but other mechanics more familiar to the franchise, like player choice, will also be featured. Having just been unveiled at PlayStation's Paris Games Week press conference, Rush of Blood has yet to be given a release window.
During the press conference last night, a first-person tank battler was announced. The trailer shows off explosive gameplay with a stylish neon art style. Battle Zone will be coming first to PlayStation VR.
After unveiling the next installment in the fighting game franchise, President and CEO of SCEE Jim Ryan announced that Tekken 7 will be coming to PlayStation VR. How virtual reality will be implemented in the third person fighting game is unknown.
RIGS: Mechanized Combat League
Announced back at E3 2015, RIGS is a multiplayer FPS stylized as a NASCAR-esque sporting competition. Players pilot virtual mech suits and enter in the arena to do battle and score goals. The game is being developed by first-party studio Guerrilla Games, and is projected to be an exclusive launch title for PlayStation VR.
