Stifled, The Walker and more coming to PSVR
A healthy mix of horror, thriller, fantasy and strategy.
Sony is throwing more support behind its VR platform. After a healthy showing of titles at E3 2017, like The Inpatient and Transference, Sony has taken the stage at the ChinaJoy expo in Shanghai to reveal four new titles in development for PlayStation VR.
The announced games are an eclectic mix of tragic horror, sword-wielding combat, guns-blazing thriller and fantastical real-time strategy.
First, Sony announced the award-winning Stifled would be coming to PSVR. Stifled follows David Ridley through a pitch-black world after a mysterious tragic event. To see in the world of Stifled, you will have to use echolocation using a connected microphone.
All the while you're being hunted by something that "hears your fear". I'm going to put that in the nope basket.
Next up is The Walker, a fantasy story that places you in the shoes of a descendant of the ancient Fangxiang family. In the demon-infested world of The Walker, the Fangxiang family is known for its proclivity for swords and sorcery. Your role is to imbue weapons with magical abilities and take on the demon hoards. Standard.
Kill X is a thriller from VIVA games that shipwrecks the player on a secret island where horrifying experiments have turned locals hostile. The player hops between the island's past, present and future to see witness the island's collapse.
Lastly, a real-time strategy title known as Legion Commander will make its way to PSVR. ChangYou games' RTS will supply you with armies of Orcs, Elves and Humans to duke it out with.
