PSVR Monthly – September. Read our monthly news, reviews and previews for PlayStation’s virtual reality platform.
Another month has passed so it is time for another PlayStation VR update. We have had quite a fair bit of news this month, a few games released and will chat a bit about PlayStations State of Play presentation. Sony’s presentation had a few PSVR titles featured in it and it is great to see them still pushing the platform forward. We have had no reviews this month but I am working on a few for next month, so stay tuned to The Digital Fix for those.
The ever-popular slice-em up Beat Sabre has had another significant update. This update adds some new tracks, the ability to change your sabre colours and has the usual polishing and bugfixes. I love to see titles being supported long after release, especially with new features and content. There has never been a better time to jump in and get slicing.
Also on the DLC front, Blood and Truth has had another update and with it, some fresh content. The update adds Skeet modes for you to try, of which there are five. Ranging from action skeet to puzzle skeet, these new modes give you plenty of fresh content to try. Hard mode has also been added to the game, this amps up the difficulty, enemy behaviour and makes sure your reflexes and aiming are up to scratch.
While we are on the subject of Blood and Truth, the amazing PSVR exclusive has been nominated for six TIGA awards. It’s always nice to see great games be awarded sparkly gongs and it’s even better when they are PSVR titles. Let’s hope it does well and brings home some of that sweet, sweet loot. It definitely deserves it, it’s a magnificent game and so much fun to play.
The meaty DLC pack for Borderlands 2 VR has been released. On September the 6th, all the DLC previously missing from the PSVR version will be released together in one chunk. It’s titled the BAMF pack and is free to all owners of the game. It includes all four story packs, all four headhunter packs and both the class packs. It might be time for me to finally purchase this one, especially now the PSVR aim controller is supported.
PlayStations State of Play PSVR News
In the last few days, PlayStation had one of its short presentations and this time it included a few new PSVR announcements and trailers. I have included them all below for your perusal.
Firstly we had a shadow drop of Rockstar’s LA Noire: The VR Case Files. We are hoping to have a review of this one next month for you and if you fancy playing it yourself, it’s out now. I loved the standard version of this game so hopefully, the VR version will be even better and it will certainly be more immersive.
Also shown were, Gorn, the wacky barbarian smash-em up that looks hilarious. Espire 1, Stardust Odyssey, After the Fall and Space Channel 5 VR Kinda Funky News Flash. That last title, as well as having an amazing name, looks very weird and certainly unique. All in all, I thought it was a nice selection of VR titles that cover various genres and styles. All the trailers are included below.
Upcoming PSVR Releases
As always there will be more releases over the next month or so but for some reason a lot of PSVR titles release dates are not released until very close to release date. Here are the confirmed PSVR releases over the next few weeks.
L.A. Noire: The VR Case Files – September 24th. As I stated earlier, this title was released after the PlayStation state of play. You can watch the trailer further up the feature.
Concrete Genie – October 9th. Although this title is not a true PSVR title, it does have two VR modes for you to try and I for one, cannot wait to get stuck in.
Doctor Who: The Edge of Time – Unknown. This title was supposed to be out last month, I can only assume it will be out at some point in October. I am hoping to have a review for this next month. I do love a bit of Doctor Who.
Well, that’s about it for this month, see you again next month for a plethora of PSVR tidbits, reviews and news.
