One of the only decent VR action games ever made is getting a physical release on the PlayStation VR next month courtesy of Perp Games. You’ll be able to pick up a physical copy of Sairento VR from the Singaporean developer Mixed Realms for only $39.99 from Amazon, Best Buy, and GameStop.
The developer and publisher recently announced the physical release of the VR title for the PS4’s head mounted display.
The game is about traveling through future Japan, battling cyber-ninjas and teleporting kunoichis using a wide array of cool melee and projectile-based weapons. This includes throwing a chakram, firing off a revolver, using a sniper rifle, and wielding a gauss cannon.
You can see what the gameplay is like in the trailer below.
In the single-player campaign mode you’ll have to find out why some members of the Silent Ones covert organization are becoming nano-infected slaves to a higher purpose. You’ll have to battle through the levels to uncover the secret while also acquiring and utilizing ancient relics that unlock special abilities, such as slow motion and gravity-defying abilities.
I’m kind of shocked at the level of virtual freedom and movement afforded to players in Sairento VR. In fact, this was one of the big highlights of the game for YouTube reviewer PSVR Without Parole.
It would seem like the twisting, turning, and rotating would make a lot of VR gamers motion sick, but apparently people are fine with it.
What’s more is that if the first-person makes you woozy there’s also a third-person mode for you to experiment with, but I don’t know how well that would work out in a game like this.
But beyond the single-player campaign there’s also a multiplayer challenge mode where you and a buddy can team up against the AI to perform some cool moves and dangerous killshots like a couple of anti-gravity ballerinas LARPing as John Wick.
