PlayStation VR Worlds unveiled for PS4, from London Studio

Five bespoke experiences showcasing the power and immersion of PS VR

Hello there! The team here at London Studio is extremely excited to finally announce our new game, PlayStation VR Worlds. We are pleased to have this opportunity to tell you a bit more about it.

PS VR Worlds is a collection of five VR experiences that have all been built from the ground up exclusively for PS VR.

When we started out to make this game we wanted to create the very best collection of varied experiences, each to showcase VR in different ways, to show how incredible VR can be as a media. In PlayStation VR Worlds you will be treated to incredible visuals as your dive beneath the waves, tackle 360 combat as you fight off alien hordes from all around you, or end up in a face-to-face interrogation with a deranged and furious mobster. All brought to you with the immersion that makes VR so unique.

You may have seen snapshots of some of these experiences before as demos, others are being revealed for the very first time. So what are these five experiences that make up the game?

The London Heist puts you straight into a gritty gangland thriller where you get to unleash your inner mobster. Dual PS Moves are a natural accompaniment to PS VR (N.B. this experience also supports PS DS4) and here provide brilliantly intuitive controls that let anyone play. Totally immersive throughout, you undertake an audacious robbery and then try to make your escape.

Into The Deep (working title) puts you to work as a deep sea salvor, in this underwater emotional roller coaster. Not only do you get to see fantastic marine life all around you but as you descend through the ocean layers to the inky depths you will experience the true terror of something going badly wrong.

VR Luge lets you step into the jump suit of an illegal street racer. Thunder down a beautiful Californian hillside, only inches off the ground in a position that only VR can put you in. You will truly feel the exhilaration as you dodge cars coming at you with horns blaring or when you slide underneath a massive 18-wheel truck.

Danger Ball is a futuristic sport where you must win or die. Use your head to strike and spin the ball in this intense, fast paced game. Each rival has unique abilities to use against you as you make your way through the tournament to become champion.

Finally we have Scavenger’s Odyssey. In this sci-fi adventure you play an alien treasure hunter. With your agile craft you can leap huge distances, climb walls, hurl debris with your Scavenger beam and pummel alien critters with your twin pulse cannons. With your unique vehicle you will be able to make your way through a dangerous environment of giant ravaged ships, smashing asteroids to reach an ancient and legendary artifact.

A collection of the minigames we saw during the different PSVR showings? That is a great idea and a good launch title to show the system’s capabilities.


Colour me intrigued…

Looks first class, I’m looking forward to something new!

Very nice indeed! October cannot arrive soon enough!

Seems like a good idea for a taster of what kind of things the VR can do, like a playable tech demo, I’m intrigued. London Heist looks legit, wish it was a full 8-10 hour campaign.

Why does London Heist have no arms? A pair of floating gloves isn’t total vr is it? It’ll look odd to a player if they’re not seeing arms move in sync with theirs.

VR Luge was so awesome! I tried it at Gamescom 2014. Now I just need a bean bag like PS had on the show floor. :D

Also: could you please add the “Kitchen” demo to the collection? (Maybe add a little more story to it. ;))

We close the comments for posts after 30 days.
