There’s no doubt that VR is here to stay, as the cost of headsets continue to drop and VR experiences become more accessible for the average gamer. Sony may have been late to the party when they first released PlayStation VR in 2016, but managed to quickly dominate the VR space thanks to the relatively low price point of their headset and accessories as well as the PS4’s massive install base.

In 2018, PSVR users were able to experience great games like Tetris Effect, Astro Bot: Rescue Mission, and Beat Saber. This year’s line-up has us just as excited to strap on our headsets and travel to new worlds, so we’ve created this list to highlight some of the most anticipated PSVR titles for 2019. Make sure to check back as we’ll be updating this list in the future.

Dreams

Dreams is not your typical game and can best be described as a creation tool that’s used to design virtual experiences, referred to as ‘dreams’. The game is broken up into two halves: Dream Surfing and Dream Shaping. In Dream Surfing, players are able to explore different projects that other players have created or ‘remix’ them, making their own adjustments or alterations.

In Dream Shaping, players are able to build their own dream from scratch. Here players can access a library of shared assets designed by other players, including sound effects, character models, objects and scenery, as well as make their own from scratch. The project is currently being developed for PS4 but developer Media Molecule has plans to implement PSVR support, which will offer a more immersive experience for both creators and players.

Set 20 years after the events of Wolfenstein: The New Colossus, Cyberpilot has you controlling a computer hacker for the French Resistance as they try to put an end to the Nazi regime. You gain a major edge in battle after successfully seizing remote control of one of the Nazi’s Panzerhunds, four-legged fire-breathing mechanical beasts that can destroy just about anything and anyone.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hA8imwlYw1M

While hacked into the cyborg-dog death machine’s mind, you’ll be able to explore the streets of 1980s Paris, leaping on top of enemies and burning them to a crisp with your flamethrower ability. As you reduce the Nazi’s numbers, more powerful foes will begin dropping from enemy airships, including armored soldiers wielding laser cannons and swarms of flying drones.

Blunt Force

Release Date: TBA 2019

Playstation Vr Review

Blunt Force is an episodic, first-person VR shooter being developed by Monad Rock. The game is set during the events of WWII and follows two parallel storylines.  One story is set before the war and has you controlling a spy who’s been tasked with uncovering a mole inside their operation.  The second story takes place during the war and has you controlling a soldier fighting against the Nazi army.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lbggORlGxuc

Eventually the two tales will converge, their events holding hidden meaning that will only be revealed to the player later in the game. Blunt Force will include two modes: Arcade and Challenge. In Arcade mode, players will be given tips on how to solve puzzles and move the plot forward quicker. In Challenge mode, enemies pose a much greater threat and players will have to be more precise when aiming weapons and positioning themselves in battle.

Angry Birds VR: Isle of Pigs

Release Date: TBA 2019

Upcoming Playstation Vr Games

The wildly popular mobile series Angry Birds is making its way to PSVR later this year with Isle of Pigs, a new game that puts a VR spin on the addictive Angry Birds gameplay formula. The game takes place on a remote island where the notorious green pigs like to vacation and includes 50+ levels across several destinations, like exotic beaches, steep cliffs and snowy slopes.

You’ll control a slingshot in first-person, firing an array of birds at varying pig structures with the intention of knocking them all down and racking up as many points as you can. While pretty much everyone is familiar with the Angry Birds formula by this point, there’s something unique about experiencing the game in a 3D environment where you have more control over aiming your shots.
