Well here we are, another month, another PSVR update. Firstly, the biggest news this month, in my opinion, is the fact that the current PSVR headsets will be supported on the new PlayStation 5. I think there is a new PSVR model on the horizon but it's nice to see that the current models will not be forgotten about.
We had a new interesting game announced this month. Paper Beast, from Eric Chahi, will launch this year at some point and certainly looks appealing. The games takes place in an unusual sci-fi world with no dialogue present whatsoever. You will come across a wide variety of wildlife and the papercraft world comes to life as you explore it. The details on this quirky title are very thin but we have attached a trailer below for your perusal.
Another great announcement we had this month is that UK Studio Maze Theory is working on a PSVR title based on the popular TV series Peaky Blinders. Not much has been revealed but stay tuned to PSVR Monthly for updates.
Also announced this month, Arizona Sunshine is getting some fresh content in the form of a DLC pack called 'The Damned'. This new content will apparently include the largest mission in the game to date and will include a brand new protagonist. The task is deadly simple, all you and your team of US Special Forces need to do is reactivate the generators of a massive Arizonan hydroelectric dam to restore power to the military’s nuclear missile systems.
We did get some sad news this month too, Sairento, the unique and promising PSVR title has been delayed. The developers stated they wanted more time to deliver a title that was exceptional. I like to end on a good not though, so do you want to see Captain Marvel, aka Brie Larson playing Beat Saber, of course you do.
Last Months Reviewed Games
We reviewed a few PSVR games last month. We had some real crackers too and I reviewed one of the best VR experiences I have ever played. Ghost Giant was a real masterpiece and should be played by everyone who has a PSVR headset.
Here is a link our Ghost Giant review. As you can see from the image below, it reviewed extremely well.
We also reviewed Falcon Age, which while not being as good as Ghost Giant is still well worth your time. You can read our review for the adorable Falcon Age here. I really got attached to the little feathered fellow.
May PSVR Confirmed Releases
It looks like another stellar month for PSVR, with Everybody's Golf VR and the incredible looking Blood and Truth. Throw in a bit of madness with Trover saves the Universe and we have a good selection of titles to get our little mitts on.
