The PlayStation Aim controller is slowly growing a list of compatible titles. Having launched with Farpoint earlier this year, the likes of Arizona Sunshine, Raw Data, The Brookhaven Experiment and Dick Wilde also added support for the accessory. The forthcoming Bravo Team from Supermassive Games will not only be compatible, but will also launch as part of a bundle package with the device.
The PlayStation Aim controller has been a highly sought after accessory since launch, frequently selling out at retail stores across North America and Europe. Farpoint is available to purchase both at retail and digitally via the PlayStation Store without the PlayStation Aim controller, however the general consensus of the virtual reality (VR) community is that it offers a far superior experience with the device.
The fact that Bravo Team would be compatible with PlayStation Aim had already been confirmed, however the retail bundle deal has been revealed via retailer communication. Bravo Team recently suffered a delay into next year, but upon launch will be available in a package with the PlayStation Aim controller as can be seen in the image on this page.
VRFocus has previously been hands-on with Supermassive Games’ 2018 releases, stating in a preview of Bravo Team: “Using the Aim controller feels very natural and intuitive. The normal face buttons let you reload, switch between cover positions and swap to an emergency sidearm in a pinch, as you might expect. While properly looking down the assault rifle’s red dot sight gives you a much more accurate targeting reticule for getting those head shots. You could also quick turn 180-degrees if you moved too far forward and enemies were behind you – also good for returning to a better defensive position.”
No official price point has yet been confirmed for the Bravo Team and PlayStation Aim bundle, but VRFocus has been informed that a £79.99 GBP suggested retail price (SRP) is expected; approximately £20 less than the current Farpoint and PlayStation Aim bundle is available for via Amazon.
Bravo Team is now expected to launch in March 2018, exclusively for PlayStation VR. VRFocus will keep you updated with all the latest details on this and other forthcoming PlayStation VR videogame titles.
