There are few names in horror as revered as The Exorcist. Today, you can start playing through the first three chapters of this episodic story on the PSVR. Each episode is approximately 25 -30 minutes long and has a new demon for you to fight. You can use the DualShock or Move controllers, so fight demons your way.
“First Rites” is the title for episode 1. You are a Boston detective investigating the strange murder of Father Bell. It looks like a serial killer, but the title of this game is The Exorcist, so you can imagine it wasn’t some run-of-the-mill Dexter. Father Bell was doing some investigation of his own into evil.
Episode two is called “Idle Hands”. It starts with naive people playing with powerful forces, adds a school teacher who has been driven insane (you don’t need a supernatural explanation for that), and ends with a confrontation with a powerful force.
“Skin Deep” rounds out the currently available episodes. You will be fighting a cause of child deaths throughout history named Lilith, Medusa, or Abyzou, depending on when she caught up with your civilization. You will need to fight her while protecting a baby from her destructive touch.
Each episode can be purchased for $6.99, or you can buy the whole season for $29.99. Episode 4 and 5 are due later. If you buy episode 1, you can pick up the season pass for $24.99.
This seems like a horror fan’s dream, and the PSVR puts you into the action. We haven’t had a chance to play it yet, but we look forward to putting our exorcism skills to the test. Check out the trailers for each of the episodes to get a taste of the scares.

Jason became terminally addicted to videogames after receiving the NES at an early age. This addiction grew to include PC gaming and was cemented with the launch of the PS2. From then on, he was afflicted with epic RPGs, tense shooters, and deep strategy games, never becoming skillful, but never able to quit. He continues to play games (poorly) and share his passion for them to anyone willing to listen.
