Just over a year ago now Sony revealed a slate of new games coming to PS4 via its China Hero Project, which lends support to Chinese developers. Among these games were a handful of PSVR titles that caught our eye. Last week, we got an update on how they’re coming along.
The below video catches up with a handful of the developers included in the project. On the VR front there’s Animal Force, Kill X and Pervader VR. Animal Force is one you’ve likely heard of by now; it’s releasing on PSVR later this week, offering a unique take on the tower defense genre.
Kill X is also one we’ve had our eye on for some time, especially after playing a demo of the game on the Asian PlayStation Store. It’s a first-person shooter (FPS) that has players exploring dark caves and taking on hordes of monsters. The most progress, though, seems to come from Pervader VR, which didn’t have any gameplay to speak of this time last year but now has some pretty promising footage developed on Unreal Engine 4. It looks like another FPS in which we’ll be taking down monsters.
Sadly there’s no sign of The Walker, which was one of the most interesting PSVR titles revealed last year. It’s not clear if the game is still in development right now.
The video mainly focuses on how the development teams are holding up rather than showcasing their games, but it’s a good reminder that there’s some promising stuff on the way for PSVR fans. When these games will get a western release remains unclear.
