PlayStation VR Worlds, Tumble VR Announced as PlayStation VR Exclusives

March 15, 2016 Written by Jason Dunning

From Supermassive Games, who is also developing Until Dawn: Rush of Blood, Tumble VR was announced today as a PlayStation VR exclusive title.

Described as an “accessible, fun, engaging, and immersive puzzle game,” Tumble VR takes you to a virtual arena specifically designed to test your physical dexterity and mental skills as you complete increasingly difficult puzzles.

Executive Producer Simon Harris explained:

Taking the original, much loved PS3 game, the team at Supermassive has rebuilt it from the ground up for PlayStation VR. We’ve designed a load of new levels to make best use of the VR environment and have added some great new modes as well.

Alongside the new levels and visuals for Tumble VR, we have also added new cooperative and competitive modes using the PlayStation VR Social Screen feature that allows a second player not using a PlayStation VR headset to play together with the VR player.

Additionally, PlayStation VR Worlds from Sony London Studio was announced as a PlayStation VR exclusive today.

PlayStation VR Worlds is a collection of five different VR experiences, including The London Heist, Into the Deep, and VR Luge:

The London Heist – Puts you straight into a gritty gangland thriller where you get to unleash your inner gangster. The London Heist is best controlled by dual PS Move controllers but you can also play with a DualShock 4 instead with intuitive controls that make it surprisingly easy to pick up and play. You will feel highly immersed as 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. It’s an emotional underwater 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 horribly wrong.

VR Luge – Lets you step into the jumpsuit 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 – 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.

Scavenger’s Odyssey –  In this cab based 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, infested environment of giant ravaged ships, smashing asteroids to reach an ancient and legendary artifact.

Release windows weren’t given for either title.

PlayStation VR launches this October for $399 USD.
