At Sony’s press conference at the Paris Games Week Sony presented a new range of games including games for the PlayStation VR.
The presentation was opened by Jim Ryan (CEO of SCEE). He started his presentation with a series of exclusive, but already available PS4 games and the already known price reduction of 349 euros. The presentation continued with several developers presenting games like: V Street Fighter, Tekken 7, Battle Born, Metterfall, Gravity Rush 2 Drive Motor Club, Blood Borne and Dreams.
Eventually, Shuhei Yoshida, president of SCE Worldwide Studios, went on the stage to give us a new glimpse into the development of PlayStation VR games. More info about the release date or any further information about the developments of the hardware was not mentioned.
Rigs: Mechanized Combat League
The demonstration of Rigs during First Look was received very positively. If you had not the change to check this game out, then look at this new amazing trailer. It shows what this game has in store.
A release date has not announced, but it is certain that the game will be released along with the PlayStation VR. At First Look we spoke with Jeroen Roding, Community manager at Guerrilla Games, and he told us that the game is still in an early stage of development. This suggests that we may have to wait until the second quarter of 2016 before the PlayStation VR headset is available to the public.
Until Dawn: Rush of Blood
After the trailer Shuhei Yoshida announced the popular first party title Dawn: Rush of Blood comes to PlayStation VR.
ROBINSON: THE JOURNEY
Founder of Crytek, Cevat Yerli, came on stage to tell Robinson had several new features and was built from the ground up to make it to work with the PlayStation VR. A fantastic trailer followed.
To demonstrate that virtual reality is not only about games, Shuhei Yoshida of Sony’s Worldwide Studios introduced The Walk (SPE). In this game, ahem movie, you are walking on a tightrope between two skyscrapers.
As icing on the cake Jim Ryan also announced that the latest part of Tekken will also support PlayStation VR. We wonder how that will turn out with a game in this genre.
