I can’t believe I’m writing this, but PSVR exclusive Golem has been delayed again. Don’t worry, though, it’s only a small delay and (probably) the last one. Maybe. Hopefully.
Back in October we reported that the long-awaited debut from Highwire Games would finally launch physically in the EU on November 8th, published by Perp Games. A digital release was supposed to follow on November 12th.
Well, the physical EU release is now on November 15th. The digital launch will follow on November 19th. Finally, the US physical release comes on November 22nd. It’ll be available through Target for $29.99 and will come to other retailers in the near future.
In Golem, you play as a young girl confined to her bedroom. She discovers the power to possess stone golems. She uses them to escape beyond the walls of her room. The game features sword-based combat using a PlayStation Move controller. Highwire itself is made up of former Halo developers, hence why we’ve kept such a keen interest in the project.
At this point we probably don’t need to tell you about Golem’s beleaguered development cycle. The game was announced before PSVR itself had even launched in 2015. It was shaping up for launch in early 2018, but suffered a last minute delay before going into hiding. It finally resurfaced at our E3 VR Showcase earlier this year.
Even with the delay, we’re still relieved to see that the game is finally coming this year. Will you be picking up Golem? Let us know in the comments below!
