Earlier this year it was announced that the brilliant BoxVR would be getting a physical release to supplement the game’s original PSN release. The boxing game was due to land on store shelves this October, but today, Perp Games has announced that BoxVR will now release at North American retail on November 19th.
There’s no reason given for the delay, but at least it’s coming to disk at all, especially seeing as many PSVR games tend to release digital-only. If you’re a disc collector, you’ll only have to wait an extra few weeks to add BoxVR to your collection. And it’s worthy of a place, too. We reviewed the game earlier this year and awarded it a 9/10 – ‘Must Buy’ rating. If anything else, it’s at least a good way of getting a workout routine into your life without having to fork out for a gym membership.
Pre-orders are now live for BoxVR, and you can pick up your copy via Amazon, GameStop and Target. The cost? $29.99. Waaay cheaper than a gym pass.
· Professionally Designed Workouts – A team of leading fitness instructors are regularly consulted to produce a variety of revolving boxing workouts, specifically designed to destroy calories. From short three-minute warmups to 60+ minute endurance workouts, players will find everything needed to get their heart rates going;
· Customizable Routines – My Workouts mode allows players to create as many custom routines as they want, controlling the length of their workout by building playlists from the 110 included music tracks, and adjusting the intensity of any routine;
· Group Workouts – Getting in a workout can be easier with motivation from a buddy, so BoxVR supports multiplayer, allowing up to six people to tackle the same workout together, and see who can lock in the top score;
· Trackable Progress – Every workout is recorded, so players can track calories burned over time and see their progression made towards set goals;
· Musical Motivation – Over 100 different music tracks are available to customize the energy and tone of a workout, spanning genres including pop, rock, electronic dance music, drum and bass, hip hop, and more.
