On October 13, Sony will be joining the likes of Facebook and Valve, releasing its very own virtual reality headset to compete against the Oculus Rift and the HTC Vive.
Unlike competing headsets, you don’t need a super powerful PC to use PlayStation VR – it will work with the millions of PS4s already on the market.
But no piece of gaming hardware is any good unless you have games to play on it. Here are the 31 games you’ll be able to play on your PlayStation VR on launch day.
“100ft Robot Golf” is a playful, silly, chaotic golf game in which you play giant robots who can crush buildings with a single, mighty swing of a club.
“Ace Bandana” is an arcade-style archery game.
“Battlezone VR” is a bright, colorful multiplayer tank combat game.
“Batman: Arkham VR” puts you in the shoes of the Dark Knight himself, doing all sorts of investigative mini-games, solving crimes with a litany of Bat-gadgets.
“Bound” is a surrealist, artistic platformer already out for PS4, but it will also be compatible with PSVR.
“Driveclub VR” is a virtual reality version of “Driveclub,” a racing simulator.
“EVE: Gunjack” is a first-person space shooter that takes place in the world of “EVE Online”
“EVE: Valkyrie” is more of a space flight simulator than the arcadey “EVE: Gunjack,” but it too offers all sorts of opportunities blast enemy ships into oblivion.
“Harmonix Music VR” is more of a toy than a full game — think of it like a 3D version of Microsoft Paint mixed with a music visualization tool. Not only will the landscape you’re in pulse and shift with the music you’re listening to, but so too will the three-dimensional sculpture drawings you create.
“Hatsune Miku: VR Future Live” is a rhythm game starring the famous Japanese pop star persona.
“Headmaster” is a goofy game in which you have to complete puzzles and objectives by headbutting soccer balls into goals and at targets. And yes, that means actually having to thrust your head through the air like a dork.
“Here They Lie” is a creepy, surrealist horror game. Not much is known about it yet, but it will be available at launch on October 13.
“Hustle Kings VR” is a VR version of the popular pool game.
“Job Simulator” is a goofy collection of mini games that sets players loose in a surreal office environment. It’s one of the best games on both the Oculus and the Vive, so it’s a welcome addition to the PSVR library as well.
“Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes” is cooperative game in which the person wearing the headset has to defuse a bomb, but can only do so by describing its chaotic layout of wires to their friends, who frantically flip through the game’s manual to provide the necessary instructions.
“Loading Human” is a narrative sci-fi game that unfolds over a series of individual episodes.
“SportsBarVR” plops players in a virtual bar environment where you can engage in a variety of games best played with a buzz, like pool, darts, skeeball, and checkers.
“Super Stardust Ultra VR” is a VR version of an already wonderful sci-fi arcade-style action game. Rather than watch your ship move around a tiny planetoid from afar — as was the case in the original “Super Stardust Ultra” — the VR version will actually put you in the driver’s seat.
“PlayStation VR Worlds” is kind of like the “Wii Sports” of PSVR. It’s a collection of several small experiences, like one that puts you in an underwater cage with a very angry shark, or “London Heist,” which is an action movie-style gangster romp.
“Rez Infinite” is a psychedelic rhythm-action game that first came out for the Sega Dreamcast in 2001, but has been totally re-vamped for PSVR.
“RIGS Mechanized Combat League” is a chaotic, sci-fi action game that puts players in giant mech suits to duke it out against one another.
“Tomb Raider: Blood Ties” is a PSVR-compatible mission for “Rise of the Tomb Raider” that puts players in Lara’s shoes as she sorts through Croft Manor in search for clues about her family’s legacy.
“SuperHyperCube” is a puzzle game in which walls with shapes cut out of them are constantly rushing towards you. You have to rotate floating Tetris-like shapes so that they properly fit through those slots in the oncoming walls.
“The Assembly” is an eerie-looking sci-fi adventure game about an secretive group of scientists who conduct brutal experiments on human subjects.
“Playroom VR” is another collection of mini-games. Some, like “VR Bots” are just simple interactive environments, but others, like “Cat and Mouse,” are cooperative multiplayer games that capitalize on the fact that the person wearing the headset can be seeing something completely different than their friends who are looking at the TV.
“Thumper” is a rhythm-action game that takes place in a psychedelic hellscape. You can play it on a regular PS4, too, so even if you don’t have PSVR, “Thumper” is one to look out for.
“Tumble VR” is a physics-based puzzle game in which you have to build haphazard structures out of blocks, destroy structures as explosively as possible, or otherwise manipulate three-dimensional shapes in space.
“Until Dawn: Rush of Blood” is a simple but spooky arcade-style shooter. It’s essentially a video game version of those carnival rides where you’re traveling in a rail car, shooting at targets and other monsters as they pop out of nowhere and rush towards you.
“Volume Coda” is a free PSVR-compatible expansion for “Volume,” the critically acclaimed stealth puzzle game.
“Wayward Sky” is unlike most VR games in that it uses a “God view” perspective rather than a first-person view. It’s a cartoony, charming puzzle game that seems like a welcome change from PSVR’s more ultra-immersive, intense experiences.
“World War Toons” is a silly, cartoony competitive shooter that’s entering a period of open beta testing alongside the PSVR’s launch. It will also be available for PS4 owners who don’t have the PSVR headset.
It’s important to note that you can use your PlayStation VR as the display method for ANY of your existing PS4 games, so even though “Destiny” wasn’t designed for VR, you can still play it that way if you want to.
