Coming off the back of a great E3, PlayStation VR (PSVR) is set to have a big month with some anticipated new releases. The first of those releases hits next week.
We’re of course talking about Fantastic Contraption. Confirmed for release last year, Northway Games’ awesome creation title, which was a launch game for HTC Vive and Oculus Touch, will be out on July 11th on PSVR. The game tasks players with transporting an object to a goal zone by making them build their very own vehicles with a set of tools. We loved it when it came out on Vive and we’re hoping it will fit right in on PSVR using two PlayStation Move controllers.
The port is being handled by Radial Games, who has also added in some exclusive levels to this version. These challenges have been specifically designed for seated play (PSVR doesn’t support room-scale play like on Rift and Vive). To that end, the developer has also tweaked its resizing option to allow players to quickly grow and have reach over the entire map.
Finally, there’s some enhancements for PS4 Pro owners, too. Those that have Sony’s upgraded console will be able to enjoy improved visuals with higher resolution textures and improved backdrops and scenery and even extra island decorations.
Fantastic Contraption will cost $19.99 at launch, though PS Plus members will get an extra 10% off if they pick it up during launch week.
There’s plenty more coming to PSVR this month; Archangel and Superhot VR should both be here in a matter of weeks. Better get through Arizona Sunshine quick, eh?
