There’s always been a question regarding updates to virtual reality (VR) titles, particularly those that came out during the retail launch period. In spite of that a number of titles have had updates or staggered unlocks of content. A good example of this would be PlayStation VR’s Hatsune Miku: VR Future Live whose “3rd Stage” was released back in December following the intial launch of Sony Interactive Entertainment’s (SIE’s) head-mounted display (HMD).
Today two VR video games have revealed planned content updates, the first being HTC Vive title Omni Arena which has an April update planned for a new game mode. The second in another PlayStation VR title, The Playroom VR whose update was revealed by Nicolas Doucet of Sony Computer Entertaiment Japan on the PlayStation Blog.
The update, live today and free to all PlayStation VR users, sees The Playroom VR be furnished with a new game for its lineup. Called Toy Wars it sees the headset wearer become a gattling gun wielding action hero – albeit one securely ensconced in a swivel chair according to Doucet. The player must then fight off waves of blocky enemeies, assisted – if the chance is available to you – by up to three non-VR playing friends who will be controlling large robots. All three brought into the action by Evangelion-style lifts from a hidden underground base.
Toy Wars joins other The Playroom VR games including Cat and Mouse, Wanted! and Monster Escape. Screenshots for the new addition can be found below. VRFocus will bring you more on the latest additions to PlayStation VR and all the other VR headsets available as the news becomes available.
