10 Promising PlayStation VR Games

The launch of PlayStation VR is less than a month away now. There's 40 confirmed games and 36 launch games—as well as some previous games being patched for VR—so it's a bit exciting to see what's in store. With so many games to pick from, I've compiled a list of some the top 10 games I'm anticipating.

RIGS: Mechanized Combat League

Release date: October 13, 2016 | Pre-Order

RIGS is trying to bring fast-paced competitive arena shooters to VR. To ensure players aren't throwing up excessively during a match, they've placed everyone in large mechs known as Rigs. The reason you're less likely to become ill is because being in a vehicle is more comfortable when you're jumping around.

There's 24 total Rigs to compete with separated in four different classes: Tempest, Hunter, Mirage, and Sentinel. Each class comes with their own unique weapons and special abilities. There's also three modes to compete in:

  • Power Slam: Players compete for score by jumping through a ring in the center of the arena.
  • Endzone: Players use a holographic ball to run through goalposts much like American football.
  • Team Takedown: Players rake up a kill score via basic arena team deathmatch.

100ft Robot Golf
Release date: October 10, 2016 | Pre-Order

Another giant robot game, but this time it involves destroying worlds to play golf solo or with friends. There's several different robots to choose from and customize to your golfing play style. There's also a huge cast of characters with voice actors from the anime and gaming industry.


Rez Infinite

Release date: October 13, 2016 | Pre-Order

Remember the old Dreamcast/PlayStation 2 game, Rez? Well it's being remade for virtual reality this year under the name Rez Infinite. It will include a higher resolution, 3D audio, and a new "Area X" level. If you're unfamiliar with the title, it's a rail shooter with heavy electronic music created when players destroy their enemies.

Resident Evil 7
Release date: January 24, 2017 | Pre-Order

Resident Evil 7 went a completely different direction from the canon series. Instead of being a survival horror or a third-person shooter, it's now a first-person horror adventure game in the vein as the infamous P.T. demo. The entire experience can also be played using the PSVR headset. As someone who's played a few horror games in VR already, it's a much different experience in VR than just watching it on a screen.

Battlezone
Release date: October 13, 2016 | Pre-Order

Battlezone is getting another reboot and also a boot into VR—something that fits this series perfectly. Control a powerful tank through an '80s neon world and blast other tanks into busted up polygons. The campaign is generated on the fly so each map, mission and enemy is subject o change. As an added bonus, the entire campaign is completely co-op.


Job Simulator: The 2050 Archives
Release date: TBA | Store Page

Have you ever wanted to goof off at work? Throw coffee in the face of your boss? Pick up food you dropped on the floor and serve it to your customer? Then Job Simulator is your game! Several different jobs will be available including chef, office worker, store clerk, and more. It will also use the Move controller for hand movements to give you a fuller experience of work.

Moto Racer 4
Release date: October 13, 2016

Moto Racer used to be my favorite bike game on PC when I was a teenager so of course I'm excited about it's return. Not only the return to crazy maps and unrealistic high jumps, but it's now going to be in VR on PlayStation VR and PC!

The Modern Zombie Taxi Co.
Release date: TBA 2016

Stupid rag doll games are nice when done properly. The Modern Zombie Taxi Co. looks like it could be just that. It's a driving game that has you drive zombies around a zombie infested town. Slamming on your breaks can make zombies fly through the window and bounce around in the car. And if you see someone walking around, run them over too. I'm thinking this game will be a nice way to try out VR for the first time and to experience some laughs at the experience of hurting others. But hey, they're already dead!

Driveclub VR

Release date: October 13, 2016 | Pre-Order

Speaking of cars, Driveclub is getting the VR treatment with 5 new tracks and a new cruise mode to explore the scenary and cars at leisure. Everything else is the same package as the original Driveclub. If you're a season pass purchaser for Driveclub, you can pick up the VR update for $19.99 instead of $39.99

Ace Combat 7
Release date: TBA

Ace Combat is top-tier fun if you enjoy military combat flight simulators, I can't imagine Project Aces screwing that up. The game will feature jets that you can customize with different outfits to take online or offline in campaign mode. It's also coming to PlayStation VR so you can experience the sensation of pulling Gs in your living room.
