There are going to be a couple of PlayStation VR game releases this year and they are all pretty interesting. In this post, I would mention 5 games that are worth the wait and can get any gamer excited. The Resident Evil: 7 was one of the major releases that the PS VR had this year in the month of January and we are all hoping for the games mentioned below to be as amazing as the Resident Evil release.
A few games that did sound promising are-
This first project of Impulse Gear which was exclusively made for the PSVR. It is a sci-fi FPS game where the protagonist has crashed into an alien planet and tries to survive and look around for more clues which would help in his escape. This game has some great graphics which is totally worth it when experienced with the PlayStation VR.
The game trailer was released at the E3 event, 2016 and it received a lot interesting positive reactions.The game is more like a “gun fest” and is really interesting when you look at the sunkissed space and the giant rocks surrounding you. You would be met with batches of creepy and sometimes disgusting looking creatures which need to be shot in order to survive on the hostile planet.
Being in this games involves a lot of shooting at giant spiders and species spitting acid from their pouches, at least from was seen at the E3. Speaking of motion sickness, there were not many people complaining about it, so I think the coast is clear when it comes to inducing motion sickness. The game is a PSVR exclusive and one of the most awaited games of 2017 and the set release date is 16 May 2017. You can pre-order the game now or you could wait for the release!
2. Ace Combat 7
It was announced last year that Ace combat would be one of the PSVR releases and since then we really can’t wait to get the experience of the complete game. The game is a typical aerial fight where you would be flying your fighter planes up in the air and launching missiles in order to take down your enemies.
The game does have an impressive graphics which is something that would make the gameplay even better in VR. However, the game developers are not sure if they would launch the complete game in VR but it is definitely a game which most of us have been anticipating and hopefully, we would get to play this game in VR later this year.
After the terrifying gameplay of resident evil, it was clear that playing games on the VR headset can make the entire storyline and gameplay a thousand times more convincing and real. The release date of the game is on 31 December 2017 which is definitely a long wait, hopefully, I should not feel the need to add it to the awaited games list for the next year, LOL.
3. Megaton Rainfall
Megaton Rainfall is one of the games that I really can’t wait to play in VR. This first person game gives you the superhero feel. Unlike the other games like Batman or spiderman here you have the entire earth for yourself where you can travel from one city to another at supersonic speeds creating some collateral damage.
The entire game looks pretty amazing in VR, however, the release date is not very clear but I would definitely try this game for the amazing graphics and concept. In this game, you are a superhero who is indestructible and are trying to stop an alien invasion. The protagonist does not die in the game instead the cities have life bars which would cause you to lose if you let the aliens destroy them.
Throughout the game, you would acquire various superpowers and in the case, you damage too many skyscrapers then you would lose the game. The entire concept combined with the realistic graphics in VR makes this game one of the most awaited game to be played with the PSVR.
Golem trailer was so great that I was waiting for this game to be released but after the glitch they had last year, all I’m hoping is that they fix the game soon and get it out for release this year. The game looks pretty amazing and the storyline is engaging.
In this game, the protagonist is a girl who posses stone creatures and is able to control them. These creatures are called golems and the rest of the story remains masked and unknown. One of the major issues with the game is that the fight scenes looked really slow and needs some work from the developers to make it better.
The environment of the game looks amazing but the laggy scenes are pretty annoying and this was the major point of discussion last year about the Golem after its press release. Hopefully, this year the game releases after fixing all these problems which would make it one of the most awaited games. Honestly, I did have a lot of expectations from this game but the last year incident was a bummer, hoping that we get to play this game without any issues this year.
5. Xing: The Land Beyond
In this game, you would be crossing the threshold between life and death. After death, you would be exploring various mysterious lands.You would encounter puzzles, trapped souls and the power to change the environment around you.
You would be fighting for the freedom of your spirit and along the journey, you would end up freeing other spirits as well.The spirits would guide you in solving the puzzles and the puzzles usually consist of scattered poetry. The entire gameplay looks amazing and the views and sceneries are breathtaking.
The developers have done a pretty good job with the game and the entire game must provide an immersive experience in VR. The game with all its puzzle and adventures is one of the most awaited game on the PS VR and hopefully, the game would have a successful release for all the three PC VR headsets.
