Sony’s beginning to unveil PlayStation VR’s lineup for this October, and there are some interesting games coming.
The week before E3 is when companies do one of two things: try to capture attention during a slow news week or announce smaller games that might get buried by bigger ones. I’m pretty interested in the latter!
PlayStation VR is likely to be a huge focus at E3, and though we know the price ($399) and release date (October), we haven’t seen many games.
On the company’s official blog, however, we’ve got some new details.
First, there’s Harmonix Music VR, a collection of musical mini-games:
This trailer focuses on a mode called The Dance. Per Harmonix:
The Dance is a brand new world for Harmonix Music VR that lets you to choreograph moves for whacky characters. Once you’ve got the party going on the dance floor, you can go to town with a variety of toys at the DJ booth, and even wreak havoc in Giant Mode.
The other game—the more intriguing game—is a puzzler called Statik.
It’s not clear why your hands are strapped into that strange device, or why the man who did it to you has a pixelated face, but I want to find out.
Per the developer:
Statik is a VR puzzle-mystery, where you join Dr. Ingen and his delightful assistant Edith on a journey to unravel the complexities of the human mind. Awakening to each new day with a unique, hand-mounted puzzle device to solve, you must use your brain, eyes and ears to solve each mystery. Except… this is VR, so it’s hard to know whether you can trust any part of yourself. Our money’s on your brain!
Here’s hoping we’ll see some other VR horror games, too...
