Ever wanted to be Batman? Thanks to Rocksteady and Sony’s PSVR, you can (sort of) be.
Now, normally, you’d need years of training fro masters around the globe, a near-genius intellect, and limitless money to actually be Batman. Thanks to developer Rockeady and Warner Bros though, you can be a reasonable facsimile with just a PSVR Headset.
Pretty nice-looking huh? It’s not the greatest preview of what the game has in store for gamers. Overall though, it’s hard to not be impressed by that peek. Batman: Arkham VR is hard to peg, as there hasn’t been much previewed about it. That’s not unique though, as the PSVR’s launch lineup has been more or less a totally mystery. Actually, Arkham VR might be one of the better detailed games out of all of them… whatever the rest might be.
I was at the Con, but lines were long and I didn’t get the chance to try out the game. Though from the look of that footage I wish I had. According to the press release, Batman: Arkham VR gives players the chance to “descend into the Batcave” and have some kind of combat experience in Gotham itself. As we saw above too, Nightwing is a part of things as well.
As I mentioned, I didn’t get the chance to try the game out. I’m intrigued though, as to how Rocksteady handles the fighting that came across so well in the actual Batman:Arkham games. It’s one of the best combat systems in gaming after all, so I can’t imagine that it’d be all that easy to pull off some form of it in VR.
We’ll see I guess, so far so good though. Batman: Arkham VR hits the PS4 for the PSVR in October and will run you $19.99 USD.
