Playstation VR is set to hit store shelves globally in a few days; October 13, to be exact. While we were in Japan for Tokyo Game Show its presence was tremendous. You could pretty much see the new bit of hardware in almost every booth with experience ranging from completely awesome to the absolutely bizarre. While some of us may be most excited to try out and get freaked out by Capcom’s latest entry into the Resident Evil franchise, that won’t be until January 2017. If you’re looking to grab Playstation VR as soon as its released, here’s a round up of the Top 3 Games you may want to check out while giving your new toy for a spin.
Batman Arkham VR
Who doesn’t want to wear the cowl? In Batman VR, you get to step in the shoes of one of the most iconic superheroes in history. While the titles by Rocksteady Games boasts of its combat system and open world mechanics, Batman Arkham VR takes a more cerebral approach as you solve mysteries to save the Caped Crusader’s allies from the Clown Prince of Crime.
You may need to invest in more gear to truly get an immersive experience with Driveclub VR, but from what we’ve seen in gameplay footage — it may well be worth it if you’re a racing fan. In Driveclub VR you can experience the rush of jumping into the driver’s seat of some the most powerful cars on the planet. If you don’t have a racing rig to go along with your VR headset, no worries — you can always use the Dual Shock controller in the meantime.
Until Dawn: Rush of Blood
Until Dawn was one of our favorite titles on the PS4, which probably makes this choice a little biased. Until Dawn: Rush of Blood is a big departure from the original game on the PS4. This time around its a shooter instead of a mystery/thriller where every choice you make spells life or death for the gaggle of teens trapped in a cabin in the woods. Nonetheless, from what we’ve seen from gameplay footage thus far, it looks pretty impressive and may be good for a jump scare of two. The setting is creepy as all heck and, you know, killer clowns… ‘Nuff said!
There are 29 other titles set to be released on October 13. If you’re not a fan of the titles we mentioned above then there a lot more to choose from. We’ll be tring to get our hands on the Playstation VR a look at the new hardware from Sony, so do check back on the site from time to time.
