Goat Simulator is Crashing Onto PS4 and PS3 in August

After previously wreaking havoc on PC, Mac, Linux, iOS, Android, Xbox One, and Xbox 360, the infamous Goat Simulator is rocketing onto PlayStation consoles next month to continue all sorts of goatly destruction and chaos.

In a new post on the PlayStation Blog, Goat Simulator was announced for release on August 11th, 2015 and coming to PS4 and PS3, following the game’s original release in April 2014 on PC, followed by subsequent releases on other platforms after.

Developer Double Eleven, the studio currently working on the PS4 and PS3 ports of the title, detailed that the PlayStation ports will feature two-player local co-op on PS3, while the PS4 version will include up to four players causing goatly destruction at once.

In addition, the studio also teased the title’s inclusion of “GoatVR,” a new feature debuting in the PlayStation editions of Goat Simulator that promises “the most authentic ‘simulated GoatVR experience’ that doesn’t require a helmet or anything. Although it’s not quite ready yet we felt it better to stay ahead of the crowd and let it out into the wild.” The blog post continued:

“We still need to do that part where it connects to an actual headset but for now you can enjoy a simulated GoatVR experience without it. We’ve also added a score multiplier to help offset the concerns we’ve had from a very few number of Beta testers that felt it was somewhat difficult to “see where you are going.”

Take that as you will, and we’ll see what all the “GoatVR” fuss is about when the new versions come out next month, in what’s sure to be a tongue-in-cheek feature similar to the Goat MMO Simulator and GoatZ DLC released after the game’s launch.

Goat Simulator is currently available on Xbox One, Xbox 360, PC, Mac, Linux, iOS, and Android – the PS4 and PS3 versions of the game will release on August 11th, 2015.
