Top 3 PlayStation VR Games To Watch Out For

PlayStation VR - Multiplayer Gaming

News and rumors about Sony’s new virtual reality gaming console are making rounds and hype is building. Virtual reality has been touted to be a revolutionary new technology, that will forever change the gaming experience as we know it – and preliminary response to the PlayStation VR has been largely positive.



As the PlayStation VR’s launch nears, we’ve been getting sneak peeks and previews of titles lined up for release. Most of these games are still under active development and will undergo extensive changes, before they’re available on stores; no surprise considering, that the PlayStation VR hasn’t even been released yet. Let’s take a look at some of the most promising and unique PlayStation VR games that you should be excited about!

 

Robinson: The Journey

Robinson: The Journey is being developed for the PlayStation VR by Crytek. In case you haven’t heard of Crytek, it is a German company known for producing high quality and visually stunning first person games like ‘Crysis’. Crytek has built their own game engine called ‘CryEngine’, which they use to develop their games.

In Robinson: The Journey, you take on the role of a young boy stranded on a hostile jungle planet populated by dinosaurs. You’re accompanied on your adventures by a quirky robotic orb with an English accent. Little of the actual gameplay has been revealed, but it appears to involve exploring and interacting with sprawling jungle based environments and surviving encounters with gigantic dinosaurs.

In 2015, Crytek revealed two virtual reality demos titled ‘Back to Dinosaur Island’ at various industry events. ‘Back to Dinosaur Island 1’ was a largely static demo where players were placed up close to a giant dinosaur, while ‘Back to Dinosaur Island 2’ involved players exploring the island. The critical reception these two demos received seem to have been the inspiration behind Robinson: The Journey.



Only a teaser trailer has been revealed by Crytek so far, and the game looks to be exactly the sort of experience one would want from a virtual gaming console. The trailer shows the protagonist frantically avoiding being stomped by a herd of brachiosaurus and ends on a thrilling note, with the player coming face to face with a T-Rex.

 

P.O.L.L.E.N

P.O.L.L.E.N is a first person game being developed by Finnish developer Mindfield Games. It features exploration and survival horror elements.

P.O.L.L.E.N is set in an alternate timeline, where the space race between the U.S. and the Soviet Union has taken space exploration to new heights. The game itself is set in 1992 on Station M, a space station located on Titan, one of Saturn’s moons. A member of the research team has disappeared on the cusp of an important announcement, and it is up to the player to investigate.

Gameplay involves exploring the space station and slowly unravelling the story, by navigating highly interactable environments. P.O.L.L.E.N’s survival horror elements make it particularly suited for VR. The player is alone in space, millions of miles from civilization; and the virtual reality game captures that feeling of isolation perfectly!

P.O.L.L.E.N is being developed using Unity Engine 5 and will also be compatible with the HTC Vive and the Oculus Rift.

 

Dreams

Media Molecule is a company known for making creative and immersive games, that look visually unique. Their hit title ‘Little Big Planet’ was a platformer with puzzle solving elements and a twist – user created levels.

Dreams appears to continue this legacy. Very little has been revealed about the game, but it is known that players will have the option to craft their own dreams (or nightmares). And other players will be able to explore these dreams. Creativity seems to be a guiding concept behind the design of Dreams.

Only a teaser for Dreams has been revealed so far, and it’s intriguing; although it doesn’t say much about what the game will be all about – It shows a polar bear playing a piano, a motorbike chase set in a futuristic city and a baby polar bear smashing zombies with what appears to be a sledgehammer.

The environments are clearly surreal, just like you’d expect from a game inspired by dreams. Virtual reality technology would be a great aid in immersing player in these environments.

 

These are just three of the many amazing titles lined up for the PlayStation VR. The PlayStation VR is set for release in October 2016 and is proposed to retail for $399.
