Sony is also committed to having about 50 games ready for launch come October and, naturally, took the wraps off of a brand new title and a few future releases. The most noteworthy title? Batman: Arkham VR, a virtual reality take on the acclaimed Arkhamseries that will let Bat fans experience Gotham, the Batcave and iconic Batsuit from the perspective of the Dark Knight himself. Sony also showcased Farpoint(“an unnerving space adventure set on a hostile alien world”) and surreal horror experience Here They Lie. There’s even a special edition of Star Wars Battlefront on the way, not to mention Resident Evil 7. While RE7will come to Xbox One and PC, each of the other aforementioned games will be exclusive to the PlayStation VR (and PlayStation 4, which is required for Sony’s headset).
