There has been no small number of big announcements made by Sony Interactive Entertainment (SIE) at this year’s Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) and some of the biggest of those announcements have been regarding the company’s upcoming PlayStation virtual reality (VR) headset. When Sony revealed the headset’s release date at its E3 press conference this week, it also revealed a number of first-party titles that would be launched alongside it. These titles included Tumble VR, Until Dawn: Rush of Blood, PlayStation VR Worlds, and RIGS Mechanized Combat League but now it’s been revealed that there are two more titles to add to this list: Hustle Kings VR and Super Stardust Ultra VR.
Both Hustle Kings VR and Super Stardust Ultra VR will cost £15.99/€19.99 when they’re launched and for those who already own the standard versions of the titles, there will be a £7.99/€9.99 upgrade option made available. Super Stardust Ultra VR is described on Australian retailer EBGames‘ website as “a whole new perspective and a totally new way to play.” Players will have to pilot a star fighter and defend their planet but this time from a first person VR perspective with intuitive PlayStation VR controls meaning players simply have to look where they want to aim and press to fire.
Hustle Kings VR is a less intergalactic affair, instead allowing players to step inside a virtual pool hall with a table-side view only VR can offer and play US 8-Ball, Black Ball, Killer, Cut Throat, Snooker and many more cue sports. Players will be able to control their cue using either their Dualshock 4 controller or the PlayStation Move controllers for even more immersion.
When listing these launch titles, EBGames has not only given their release date and price but has also posted the box art. This is the first time we’ve been able to get a glimpse of the box art for any PlayStation VR titles. It’s not all that different in terms of style from the standard PlayStation 4 box art, however, Sony definitely can’t be accused of not making it clear the titles are PSVR compatible and which accessories will be needed to play them.
With more titles than ever and official box art to pore over the release of the PlayStation VR feels closer than ever! For more PlayStation VR news keep reading VRFocus.
