Last time on PushStartPlay we looked at six interesting PSVR launch titles. This time we’re looking at a few more that will hopefully help you make your decision on what you’ll be picking up on launch day.

Driveclub VR
Publisher: Sony Interactive | Developer: Evolution | Genre: Racing

 

Driveclub VR kind of does what it says on the tin. It is Driveclub in VR. Considering that Driveclub is one of the best racers on the PlayStation 4 this could be a very important title. Especially for those that is willing to invest in the steering wheel to make their experience even more immersive. Heck it could even be a good way to practice your driving for your test, if you’re looking for a way to sell VR to your parents or significant other.

 

 

EVE: Gunjack and EVE: Valkyrie
Publisher: CCP Games | Developer: CCP Games | Genre: Shooter

 

EVE: Gunjack and EVE: Valkyrie are both games set in the EVE universe that both see you flying through space shooting things. How you do it though varies depending on what game you decide to play. Gunjack works more like an arcade shooter whereas Valkyrie is a straight up spaceship dogfighting game. Valkyrie definitely looks like it has a bit more to it, but both definitely have a charm to them. You can watch the trailer for Gunjack by clicking this text. The trailer for Valkyrie can be seen below.

 

 

Fated: The Silent Oath
Publisher: Frima | Developer: Frima | Genre: Adventure

Fated: The Silent Oath is a first person adventure game about an exiled man and his family during Ragnarök – the end of times. The journey the man and his family go on will help him find out about themselves whilst overcoming some touching and terrifying events. It seems to be an experience that is focused on telling its audience a story, rather than forcing them in to constant action or horror. Hopefully it’s a story that’s worth telling. With the story being written by Assassin’s Creed writer Jill Muray it should, at the very least, be an entertaining one.

 

 

Harmonix Music VR
Publisher: Harmonix | Developer: Harmonix | Genre: Music/Rhythm
Move Compatible

Have you ever listened to music and thought “I want to unlock the transcendent potential of my music“? Then you are the target audience for Harmonix Music VR if their press release is to be believed. The game allows you to use any song from your own library as well as using the original audio content. Some of it will move automatically but you will also be able to design your own things to move to the music. It seems like a silly sandbox game that could be a perfect way to chill out.

 

 

Headmaster
Publisher: Frame Interactive | Developer: Frame Interactive | Genre: Football

Training drills. Ugh. Don’t you hate it when you have to practice the same thing over and over again? Don’t you also hate it when the training centre you’re in is also definitely a prison despite the fact they say it isn’t? In Headmaster all you need is your head whilst you try and hit various balls in to various objects such as goals, or glasses, or spinning wheels. It seems like a game that is easy to pick up, as all you have to do is head a ball, but will be very difficult to master. It also looks like the perfect game for people that don’t usually play games due to its core mechanic being so simple.

 

 

Here They Lie
Publisher: Sony Interactive | Developer: Tangentlemen | Genre: Horror

Here They Lie has already received coverage on PushStartPlay and will be getting covered in a non VR capacity on the site. If you would like to read more about the very unique looking horror game though you can read this article and see some new gameplay here.

I like video games. That's why I write about them. I've played them for years and in that time I've found a love for creepy horrors, indie darlings and the oddities that come out of Japan. Although my main purpose on the site is to write up news and reviews I'm also one of the main Let's Play video creators of the team (or, as I call them, Brett's Play videos).
