There’s a new PSVR release this week that has flown under my radar, at least, but apparently, it came out a couple of days ago, though you’d be forgiven for not knowing about it. There’s been little fanfare or even word of mouth about Warzone VR on PSVR, so if you’re wondering what in the heck it is, you’re not alone.
Warzone VR has already been available on PCVR headsets for a while, releasing on Steam at the start of this year. It’s had a mixed reception on PC with some players complaining of poor matchmaking and some odd choices when it comes to the user interface. Others have been kinder, praising the game’s gunplay and vehicles.
On PS4 you’ll not have to worry about poor matchmaking – there is none! Apparently the PSVR version of Warzone VR ships without multiplayer, and so you’ll be playing this one all by yourself. Hey, nothing wrong with that if that’s what you like. Still, the developer is charging more for the PSVR version than the Steam version. I don’t think that will sit well with the PSVR’s vocal community.
Here’s the store description:
Warzone VR is a first-person VR shooter that features large maps, drivable vehicles, an arsenal of weapons and a progression system. The game has several modes, including: Solo (free-for-all), Team, Roam and Practice (shooting range) where you can interact and play with all of the weapons in the game.
It is built to play like a competitive multiplayer shooter but instead, with AI.
Take part in intense deathmatch or team deathmatch sessions to earn money, then use it to buy and create your favourite loadouts. You’ll be scored based on kills, team kills and deaths to evaluate your performance each match.
Traverse desert landscapes and arctic blizzards as you fight alone or alongside a team of skilled soldiers against challenging opponents that will hone your reflexes and accuracy.
