Today Sony announced the next batch of games that will be free to download for all PlayStation Plus subscribers and for the first time in a long time one of them has VR support: Wipeout VR!
Starting on August 6th (PS Plus titles always refresh on the first Tuesday of every month) subscribers can download and play Wipeout Omega Collection (which includes free VR support) and Sniper Elite 4. This is one of the better months in terms of quality in a while for even non-VR gamers, but the inclusion of one of PSVR’s very best games, period, really puts it over the top. Read why in our full Wipeout VR review.
If you’ve never played Wipeout Omega Collection or aren’t a big Wipeout fan to begin with, then you’re in for a real treat. The Wipeout games are all about speed and sleek futuristic settings. You’ll zip around tracks at blistering paces, shoot rockets at your enemies, and get a ton of air-time bounding through the air, around loops, and through corners. It’s mesmerizing visually and absolutely heart-pounding.
Even if you’ve played Wipeout before, you haven’t played it like this. Wipeout VR is a special experience.
Sniper Elite 4 may not have VR support, but Sniper Elite VR is in development and takes place in the exact same universe by the exact same devleopers. We played it at E3 2019 and really enjoyed it, nominating it for Best of Show VR game while we were there. You can watch some gameplay, read impressions, and see an interview with one of the developers right here.
Are you looking forward to downloading Wipeout VR next week? We’ll probably stream it some so maybe we will see you out there.
