Earlier this year, The Wizards launched on the PC for various VR headsets. It’s a first-person action-adventure game in a fantasy setting, where the player launches fireballs and other spells from their virtual reality-rendered hands. Now, just ahead of gamescom 2018, developer Carbon Studio has announced that The Wizards is headed to PlayStation VR.

The press release announcing the PSVR version of The Wizards doesn’t contain a release date, but it does confirm that the PSVR build will be on display at gamescom 2018. If you’re going to be there and want to check it out, head to the booth at the Polish Pavilion, Hall 4.1, Stand D050, from August 22 – 23, 2018.

Here are the key features for The Wizards:

  • Action-adventure VR spellcaster set in a rich fantasy world

  • Campaign featuring time travel, heroic battles and dragons

  • Intuitive system of casting spells with hand gestures

  • Six element-based spells to learn and upgrade
