There aren’t a lot of games that currently support the PlayStation Aim Controller, PSVR’s gun controller that simulates holding a real weapon in different games. The flagship title Farpoint was an excellent start, and that list of supported games is slowly growing with the increasing popularity and prevalence of virtual reality. That list is going to be growing in March with Bravo Team.
Though Supermassive’s light gun shooter has been delayed into next year, PSVR owners without the Aim will be happy to know that this title will have a bundle available that will include the Aim controller. The Bravo Team Aim Controller bundle currently doesn’t have a price, but VRFocus reports that there’s an SRP (suggested retail price) of £79.99 GBP. North American consumers can likely expect the price to be around $79.99.

My short run through the available level used the Aim controller, so it’s unclear how Bravo Team will implement the DualShock 4. If anything, it seems like it will be similar to Farpoint, where using the Aim is the far superior gameplay experience. Having the feeling of holding the gun directly in your hand is just what the Aim was designed for, and I reviewed it highly for that very aspect. Bravo Team will also support the Move controllers, given that no analog sticks are required for movement. Being a game that supports all three control methods for PSVR makes it massively accessible for everyone (as long as you have a headset anyway), and giving a lot of choice for how you want to play, though final release will show which of these methods is the preferred one. So far, being showcased with the Aim, that seems to be the primary input method.
Bravo Team releases March 6, 2018 exclusively for PlayStation VR.
