After a slight delay, PSVR2 launch title The Dark Pictures: Switchback VR is finally here, but just how scary is this horror-themed rollercoaster ride? To put it to the test, Aoife and I popped along to Supermassive Games to try out the third level of Switchback VR which is set onboard the SS Ourang Medan, the spooky ship from the very first Dark Pictures game, The Man of Medan.
So who will yelp the most? The VR veteran (me) or the first time PSVR2 user (Aoife)? There’s only one way to find out, and that’s to watch this week’s episode of VR Corner, which you can find above these words. Word of warning, some of the screams do get quite loud, but make sure you stick around until the end of the video for the yelp compilation. Aoife’s rendition of Dancing on the Ceiling needs to be seen to be believed!
If you don’t already know, Switchback VR is the spiritual successor to Rush of Blood, Supermassive’s excellent launch title for the original PSVR. Rush of Blood was one of my favourite games to play when the PSVR first released and as such I had pretty high hopes for Switchback VR but unfortunately, this new game failed to live up to the hype that I had built up for it in my head.
