After confirming development of a PlayStation VR version for The Wizards last summer, Carbon Studio revealed a couple of weeks ago that the videogame would be released in March. Today, Perp Games has now said that a physical version is also on its way, due a month later.
Now called The Wizards – Enhanced Edition, this new version of the magical combat title sees several new enhancements over the original. The six-hour-long, single-player Story Campaign now includes a whole new level, never-before-seen map, battles, and expanded lore. Another new addition is that of character customisation. Players will be able to change the colour of their magic gloves which has the added benefit of containing magical glyphs representing their health status. Plus there are checkpoints, improved hand tracking, accessibility and a whole bunch of other features to polish the experience.
The title still includes the Arena mode, where players can compete in never-ending battles, as well as the Fate Cards game modifier option that can change the videogame’s difficulty and rules. For example, players can highly increase their score multiplier by using a card that makes them start each level with only 1 HP.
“We’ve spent many months developing PlayStation VR version of The Wizards. This time was shared between polishing existing features, developing brand new content for the Enhanced Edition, and adding accessibility options based on the PS VR community feedback,” says Pawel Gajda of Carbon Studio in a statement. “We can’t wait for the release!”
“The magic of VR is the ability to transport you into new worlds and adventures. Carbon Studios use of VR and the PlayStation Move controllers to actually put you into the shoes of a young wizard, casting spells with your own hand actions, is truly outstanding,” Rob Edwards, Managing Director of Perp Games adds.
The Wizards – Enhanced Edition will launch in retail stores on 26th April 2019, with the digital version due to arrive for PlayStation VR on 12th March 2019. When the digital release for PlayStation VR takes place, the PC version for Oculus Rift and HTC Vive will be updated. For any further updates regarding The Wizards, keep reading VRFocus.
