PlayStation VR (PSVR) is set to have a busy few months with big releases like Farpoint and Starblood Arena, but Sony is also looking ahead, today revealing a new slate of VR titles coming from Chinese developers.
These games are all being created under Sony’s China Hero Project, which supports developers in the country. A total of nine new PlayStation 4 games have been announced, many of which will be supporting the VR headset. You can see all the games in a round up trailer below.
So let’s take a look at what was actually announced for PSVR here. Below we’ve got full trailers and more details.
The Walker, from Haymaker
This looks like the most promising title in the group, offering fantasy combat with swords and spells. The trailer shows off a lot of gameplay set in highly detailed environments. A player first uses a gun to take down minion-like enemies, but also slashes with a knife for melee combat. Bigger enemies introduce themselves later on and you can enfuse your weapons with special powers to help bring them down.
The X Animal, from Internet Stars
This is apparently a casual VR game that aims to capitalize on the sense of space that VR provides and wants to offer users different experiences.defeat enemies that appear along a line. It’s complete with some pretty wacky music.
Pervader VR, from Light & Digital
Again, it’s difficult to tell what the developer is going for here, but this is hoping to create a memorable story and an emotional experience. The trailer is using concept art, but a VR experience showing data all around the world is an intriguing concept. Expect elements of survival horror, based on the end of the clip.
The video also offers another look at Project Boundary, a first-person shooter that has promised VR support in the past, and zombie shooter Kill X. Interestingly the latter is now shown as a third-person shooter likely for non-VR play. The game’s page suggests PSVR support is still on the way, though.
No release dates, or even confirmation of a western release, for these titles yet, but keep your eyes peeled.
