Cherry Pop Games and Perilous Orbit’s pool title Sports Bar VR has now arrived with the launch of PlayStation VR yesterday but not in all territories. The studio’s have now announced that the North American release date will be next week.
Sports Bar VR is the PlayStation VR’s version of popular HTC Vive videogame Pool Nation VR. While Pool Nation VR originally launched as a fun, non-serious take on playing pool subsequent updates have expanded the games available. Meaning that with the release of Sports Bar VR it not only includes all the ball potting fun of the original but now there’s 6-player, multiplayer VR hangouts and more than seven pub games in the bar and more to come in future updates. For the launch of Sports Bar VRgamers will be able to play Pool, Darts, Air Hockey, Skreeball, Shuffleboard, Chess and Checkers.
That’s not all to make the bar an interesting and immersive place to enjoy, the environment is highly interactive. This allows players to pick up chairs, bottles or anything else lying around to either through about and smash up, or for the inventive player create their own trick shots by adding said objects to the pool table.
The Pool Nation VR version has been hugely popular with gamers, with the Steam community giving it a ‘very positive’ rating, and VRFocus gave it top marks in our review saying: “Pool Nation VR is one of the most complete and well presented videogames not just on the HTC Vive, but in modern VR as a whole.”
For PlayStation VR owners in North America keen to get their hands on the title it’ll launch next Tuesday, 18th October 2016.
