The PlayStation.Blog team can’t wait for October 13. With the launch of PlayStation VR in North America, we’re entering a new era of gaming — one that places players directly into the worlds that developers so lovingly create. To prepare for this amazing next chapter in PlayStation history, we all donned that PlayStation VR headset and sampled a bevy of upcoming PlayStation VR titles.
One of our absolute favorites was Battlezone, a PlayStation VR launch game from Rebellion. With a full-featured campaign, incredible visuals, and intense combat, Battlezone is sure to dazzle new PlayStation VR owners this October. Here’s what we thought (and felt) when we climbed into the cockpit!
Once I hit the battlefield (Zone?), the smooth combat shines like neon. Aiming is tight, the movement is buttery, and the pace makes Battlezone one of my favorite VR experiences to date.
But it’s Rebellion’s gameplay expertise that makes this one so much fun to come back to. The combat is fast and fluid, and provides a tantalizing vision into VR’s gameplay potential. Most impressive.
After initial combat preparations, you roll toward an inclined tunnel leading to your battlefield. The swell of music that accompanies this ascent invokes the same feeling of giddy anticipation that Disneyland fanatics might associate with the beginning moments of Space Mountain. Or maybe that’s just me. Either way, I can’t get enough of it.
