Today alongside announcing that SUPERHOT is coming to PS4 on July 21st, it has been revealed via a PlayStation Store listing that SUPERHOT VR will hit the PlayStation VR on the same day at the same $24.99 price-point.
The news that Superhot Team’s popular VR game was coming to PS VR was first revealed during Sony’s E3 2017 pre-presser, but a date beyond “summer” wasn’t divulged.
For those that don’t know: SUPERHOT VR is SUPERHOT reimagined from the ground up entirely for VR. It also includes the Forever Update which is said to add 20 more hours content in the form of repayable challenges, hardcore endless levels, achievements, and more.
Here’s a brief elevator pitch of the game from the developer itself:
Blurring the lines between cautious strategy and unbridled mayhem, Superhot VR is the definitive VR FPS in which time moves only when you move. No regenerating health bars. No conveniently placed ammo drops. It’s just you, outnumbered and outgunned, grabbing the weapons of fallen enemies to shoot, slice, and maneuver through a hurricane of slow-motion bullets.
SUPERHOT VR has notably been the reciciepnt of many awards, including Dice Awards Immersive Reality Game of the Year 2017 and Digital Dragons Bets Virtual Reality Game 2017.
SUPERHOT VR is currently available on PC VR headsets: HTC Vive and Oculus Rift. However, what the PS VR version has that these two versions don’t is a dynamic theme — but you will have to pre-order to get it.
Personally, SUPERHOT VR has been one of the most enjoyable experiences in virtual reality I’ve had, and so if you have a PS VR (which is hurting for some new good games at the moment) I highly recommend taking this for a spin.
