With just over a week to go until Sony Interactive Entertainment (SIE) launch the PlayStation VR head-mounted display (HMD) another title has been added to the launch day line-up. The videogame in question is Steel Crate Games’ Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes.
The frantic party title originally launched for Samsung Gear VR in 2015, then arrived on Oculus Rift in March and HTC Vive in April this year.
If you’ve not heard of Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes, its a local party title in which teams work together to disarm bombs. One person wears a headset and displaying the bomb and the various puzzle compartments that need to be solved. That person then needs to describe the puzzles they can see to the other non-virtual reality (VR) players who have a copy of the bomb diffusing manual. They then need to locate the correct page to solve each individual puzzle, working through the solutions together against a countdown timer.
With PlayStation VR, the players not in VR can view and control the bomb diffusal manual on their TV screen while communicating with the diffuser, rather then needing to print it out.
Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes will be available to download on the PlayStation Network, and during launch week, PlayStation Plus members get a 10% discount on the base price of $14.99 USD.
And to celebrate the announcement Steel Crate Games has unveiled a new trailer for the title in the run up to launch. For all the latest news for the studio, keep reading VRFocus.
