Batman: Arkham VR Trailer - "Wear the Cowl" #Batman #VR #PS4


Quote:
At this year's Comic Con International: San Diego, we gave over 500 fans the chance to #WearTheCowl - they are among the first people in the world to play Batman: Arkham VR.

If you havenít witnessed first-hand what itís like to become Batman, then the newest trailer for Batman: Arkham VR will give you a glimpse of what players are calling the closest youíll ever get to stepping into the role of the World's Greatest Detective.

Batman: Arkham VR is the winner of the first ever E3 Game Critics Award for Best VR Game. Developed by Rocksteady Studios, creators of the critically acclaimed Batman: Arkham trilogy, Batman: Arkham VR is based on DCís core Batman license and will be available exclusively for the PlayStationģ4 computer entertainment system with PlayStationģVR in October 2016 for MSRP of $19.99.

Looks cool and all, but if I have to put on gear that mimics deep sea diving, I'm not feeling it.

Yup. I'm holding out for the neural chip interface.

I tried out an HTC Vive last friday at a friends place, and I have to be honest, it widely surpassed my expectations. It's hard to explain it, but my brain really felt immersed into the world, and I bought it. Count me as a pro-VR gamer from now on.

But I don't think we're even seeing the tip of the iceberg yet, maybe from a huge distance. As the tech is improved, we'll get to try out some really cool experiences in the future, can't wait to get there though!

I can see this working well enough, batman has enough gadgets and tech to make moving around plausible enough. I'ts still going to be an overly simple game, but we're not going to see the end of that any time soon as devs just have no idea how to design for these things yet.

apparently you've never been diving because it's amazing and so is VR, you should try that too.

a lot of it is, you're right, but give the devs time to figure out creative ways to make games around this new tech. What's not a gimmick are games that lend themselves to the tech naturally like Sims. Play project cars or elite dangerous with an HMD and you'll see it's not a gimmick.
