Last month, Skydance’s Behemoth put us through our paces with the first taste of the combat heavy, dark fantasy VR adventure that’ll launch later this year on PS VR2. Now we’re turning the spotlight on three other immersive experiences also coming to the platform soon. 

Frenzies is a brand-new title debuting today, which fuses Synapse creator nDreams’ award-winning gunplay with neon-infused multiplayer arenas. Announced earlier this year, Metro Awakening VR is a return to the post-apocalyptic world of Dmitry Glukhovsky’s survival horror series. Developer Vertigo Games takes us on a trip to the underground, illuminating us as to how it’s adapting the franchise to VR, while keeping this new entry authentic to what’s come before. Finally, Mighty Eyes gives us an update on Wanderer: The Fragments of Fate with an exclusive, in-depth look into the time-traveling title.  

And remember, starting on August 7, you’ll be able to have even more content options for PS VR2, by way of a PC adapter. Players will have access to buy and play Steam’s expansive library of thousands of VR games, including fan favorites like Half-Life: Alyx, Fallout 4 VR, and War Thunder. Find out more here

Now, onto the games, as introduced by their creators. 

Frenzies


“We’re thrilled to be bringing Frenzies to PlayStation VR2!  As you can see from the debut gameplay trailer above, Frenzies fuses nDreams’ award-winning gunplay with the mayhem of multiplayer, throwing you into neon-soaked arenas for a winner-takes-all showdown with a twist. 

“Each five-round match in Frenzies is a chaotic lucky dip of randomized round types, maps, and teams that ensure no two matches are ever the same. Fun to play yet challenging to master, we think Frenzies will leave you smiling from ear-to-ear every time you step into the arena. We look forward to showing you more soon!”

– Paul Mottram, Head of Studio, Near Light: an nDreams Studio

Metro Awakening 


“We’re excited to reveal all-new screenshots and an exclusive glimpse into our upcoming VR survival horror title, Metro Awakening. The game has been created in collaboration with original series author Dmitry Glukhovsky and is a standalone installment in the franchise, set before the events of the original game Metro 2033 and featuring a very, very personal, emotional story for our protagonist.

Metro is renowned for its unique immersive world, and Metro Awakening takes this to a new level. We’ve focused on making VR interactions as immersive and diegetic as possible, utilizing features like adaptive triggers and haptic feedback to enhance the experience, while maintaining the series’ stealth-combat dynamic.

We hope you’ll join us in this thrilling new Metro experience. Mark your calendars—pre-orders start this September, giving you the opportunity to be among the first to step into the eerie, atmospheric world of Metro Awakening before it launches later this year.”

– Creative Director Martin de Ronde and Game Director Samar Louwe, Vertigo Games
