Neat Corporation’s stealth experience Budget Cuts arrived for PC-based virtual reality (VR) headsets back in 2018, with a PlayStation VR version revealed to be in the works the following year. Since that announcement Budget Cuts 2: Mission Insolvency has been released but the console version hasn’t been forgotten. Today, in collaboration with Perp Games, Neat Corporation has revealed that Budget Cuts will finally be coming to PlayStation VR this May.
Budget Cuts is a stealthy videogame designed for physicality as well as comfort. You play an employee at mega-conglomerate TransCorp who finds out their job is in danger with everyone’s roles being replaced by robots. A mysterious package arrives with a prototype stealth device which enables you to head out and hopefully save your job.
This device is a teleportation gun which not only allows for comfortable exploration but also check for guards around corners before deciding to move. You’ll need to make full use of the expansive offices, sneak around the facilities using whatever vents, ceiling crawl spaces and more to remain hidden. These small areas do mean you’ll have to actually crouch or neal down because of the tight headroom. Should you be spotted by any of the guards then it’s time for a more direct approach, using any implements that come to hand, from knives to scissors.
“We are so excited to see Budget Cuts coming to all you awesome Playstation VR players out there! We’ve been huge fans of how creative and approachable the audience for PSVR has been throughout the years, and are really looking forward to seeing everyone meet Bob, Amber, and all the other Robots in Budget Cuts,” said Jenny Nordenborg, CEO of Neat Corporation in a statement.
While Rob Edwards, Managing Director of Perp Games, adds: “One of the most popular VR games is now coming to PlayStation VR. Budget Cuts is one of the most beloved VR games of all time and we’re so honoured to be working with NEAT Corporation and Coatsink to bring a physical edition to PlayStation VR at retail.”
Budget Cuts is scheduled for launch on 15th May 2020, simultaneously via PlayStation Store and at retail locations. For further updates on the franchise from Neat Corporation, keep reading VRFocus.
