Bloober Team's haunted house horror Layers of Fear heading to PSVR later this month
PlayStation VR owners with a lust for unease and a taste for the disorientating will soon be able to traipse the halls of Bloober Team's psychedelic haunted house horror Layers of Fear VR, which opens its door on 29th April. Originally released for PC at the tail-end of 2019, Layers of Fear VR does pretty much exactly what it says on the label, delivering a more intensely immersive version of Bloober Team's delirious 2016 horror specifically designed for virtual reality headsets. Layers of Fear, if you're unfamiliar, tells the tale of a tortured painter as he attempts to complete his masterpiece - a process that draws players into an increasingly hallucinatory nightmare, with the game's beautifully realised gothic mansion setting warping and reconfiguring itself into ever-more-impossible arrangements, and delivering some deliciously disorientating, frequently unforgettable set-pieces in the process.

What follows is an five-scene, 30-minute-long story campaign - complete with animated cutscenes, voice work, and a synthwave soundtrack - in which protagonist John Asminov confronts an army of killer machines after tracking a distress signal to an off-world colony.

Rather than being a simple port, In Death: Unchained is more of an extended edition as a brand new level named The Abyss has been added specifically for the Quest.

Acclaimed VR rhythm shooter Pistol Whip is heading to PSVR next month
Acclaimed VR rhythm shooter Pistol Whip is heading to PSVR next month
Developer Cloudhead Games' critically acclaimed rhythm FPS is finally making the jump from PC to PlayStation 4, and will be available on PSVR on 28th July. Pistol Whip released at the tail-end of last year on PC and immediately drew praise for its mesmerising, music-driven first-person shooter action - a breathlessly balletic, high-intensity mix of dodging, ducking, blasting, and high-score combo chasing, with the end result doing for virtual guns what Beat Saber did for twirling neon sticks around like a caffeinated majorette. Eurogamer's Ian Higton was utterly entranced by Pistol Whip when he donned helmet and took it for a play-test last November - likening the experience to being John Wick "kicking ass in the Matrix" - and Cloudhead Games has continued to expand on that compelling core since release, adding five new stages across multiple updates, new customisation options, and more.
