HoloBall Comes to PlayStation VR Later This Month
Developer TreeFortress has announced that their PlayStation VR title HoloBall will launch on PlayStation VR on Tuesday, November 22. The virtual racquetball game will be available in both North America and Europe. As far as cost goes, players will have to spend $14.99 or €14.99 to play.
Originally released earlier this year for the HTC Vive, HoloBall has players trying to earn their freedom from a rogue AI. To do this, they’ll have to play racquetball. It’s pretty ridiculous, but it seems dumb in all of the right ways. The game requires at least one PlayStation Move controller, and a friend can join in for local multiplayer.
Here’s how the developer describes the game on its Steam page:
HoloBall plunges players into an action-sports arcade arena inspired by one of the most iconic games of all time. Use your paddles to hit, smash and curve the HoloBall past your opponent to score. Learn and master skillshots to outmatch your increasingly difficult opponents.
TreeFortress also detailed their future plans for the virtual reality game. First, they’re working on finishing up a Japanese version of the game that will arrive next year. They are also working on online multiplayer, which is expected to arrive in “early 2017.”
Those looking forward to playing HoloBall should be aware of this disclaimer from the developer:
This game is very physical. Be careful of your surroundings and make sure you wear your wrist straps!
So, when HoloBall launches November 22, always remember to wear your wrist straps, kids. You don’t want to see what happens if you don’t.
