Survios, the ever-busy developer of VR games, and Perp Games, the champion to indies wanting to get their games onto store shelves, have announced together that they’ll be bringing two of Survios’ PSVR releases to retail later this year.
Starting on November 15th, you’ll be able to pick up the recently released Battlewake – a pirate-themed ship combat game – at retailers. The upcoming first-person action game, The Walking Dead: Onslaught, will also be getting a physical release in the near future, though no release date has been confirmed at this time.
“Survios games are the most widely distributed VR titles in the world. This collaboration with Perp Games is an opportunity for Survios products to reach an even wider market in retail environments,” said Seth Gerson, Survios CEO. “From online distribution to LBE and now in-store retail, this continues our mission to bring VR to the masses.”
Rob Edwards, Managing Director of Perp Games, believes this partnership opens up many exciting possibilities “We are extremely proud to form a strategic alliance with Survios, one of the leading global developers in VR. They have consistently developed amazing, much loved games and we can’t wait to share with fans of Survios and VR, more details of the titles which will have physical versions through Perp.”
It’s always good to see more games on store shelves. It’s hard to imagine, but some people still don’t have the necessary internet to buy their games digitally, even in the year 2019, so retail still plays an important role for some. And for nerds who collect games. Can’t forget about them nerds.
