DriveClub VR announced as PS VR launch title in Japan

Sony has officially announced DriveClub VR as a PlayStation VR launch title in Japan.

No details on a western release have been announced at present, although we expect to hear something soon enough seeing as how PS VR launches in just a few months time.

According to a post on the Japanese PlayStation Blog, DriveClub VR will offer a realistic first-person cockpit view with 3D audio, and will be available to purchase as a digital download or physical copy.

While DriveClub developer Evolution Studio was shuttered earlier this year, the original game’s director, Paul Rustchynsky, has confirmed today that DriveClub VR will offer a series of new tracks.


PS VR release date approaching, Sony lines up more than 50 games for end of 2016

Sony announced back in June at E3 that PS VR will be released on October 13, 2016 and will retail for $399.99/£349.99. Support for the virtual reality headset is gathering pace, with 50 games lined up for the end of the year and around 230 developers signed on to develop games for the device.

Among the games confirmed to utilise the headset so far include Ace Combat 7, Gran Turismo Sport, Dreams, Tekken 7, and Resident Evil 7: Biohazard. In addition, PS VR will also include a cinematic mode that features a virtual 226-inch screen.

Sony’s Shuhei Yoshida recently confirmed that all PS VR games will work on a regular PS4, although some titles may require the use of the PlayStation Move controller to play.
