VR was a big part of Sony’s new introductions.
After skipping Gamescom this fall, Sony came out swinging today at its Paris Games Week press conference. The amount of games the company showed off was quite impressive and standing out among those was one game with a truly inventive looking approach in Matterfall and a heavy focus on the upcoming VR games lineup.
Especially when it comes to Sony VR, this is really the first long look Sony has given anyone at what it is developing out in the open. Closed door demos were the predominant way the company had been showing off what it had been working on until now. The among the games it showed off for the VR setup was a game called RIGS Mechanized League. This appears to be kind of a cross between Drive Club and Titanfall and all packed into an extreme first person perspective thanks to the VR tech. Set in 2065, the game touts the sport of the future as players take control of RIGS and both race and battle in out in arenas around the world.
Other VR games showed off for Sony VR were titles like The London Heist, which appears to be a taken on Payday or Grand Theft Auto 5 in virtual reality, as well as The Walk which is a game uniquely designed to give you Vertigo if the trailer can be relied on. Finally, Rush of Blood was unveiled, which is essentially a game geared towards giving you the experience of riding a rather scary rollercoaster. Just when any of these games is expected out is anyone’s guess but 2016 should be interesting for Sony and it’s Virtual Reality device. Check out the trailers below for your first look.
