PlayStation VR will launch worldwide on October 13 with an incredible amount of titles not only at launch, but releasing throughout this holiday season. There will be more than 25 titles launching with PS VR this month, including heavy hitters like Batman: Arkham VR from Rocksteady Studios, PlayStation VR Worlds from our own Worldwide Studios, and Rigs Mechanized Combat League from Guerrilla Games.
Among the holiday lineup is one of the most incredible gaming experiences ever conceived — the opportunity to battle against the evil Empire in an X-wing fighter in VR. Thanks to the talented teams at Dice, Criterion and Lucasfilm, Star Wars Battlefront Rogue One: X-wing VR Mission will give PS VR owners a chance to experience something we’ve all dreamed about. This experience will be free for all PS4 owners of last year’s fan-favorite shooter Star Wars Battlefront when it launches on PS VR this holiday.
An iconic experience like this is worth bragging about, so I’d like to give you a preview of our new TV spot — one of several in the works — that celebrates the launch of PlayStation VR in style. PlayStation VR has to be tried to be believed, but we know how it feels to be transported into our favorite gaming experiences and we think this captures that emotion perfectly.
If you can’t wait until October 13 to experience PlayStation VR, many local retailers are offering hands-on demos of experiences such as Batman: Arkham VR, Harmonix Music VR or Thumper now. Let us know what you think of our new spot!
