The PlayStation VR is still a little way out, and we're still waiting for a concrete price, although the strongest rumour right now puts it at $299, $399 with the camera and the move controllers.

Doesn't mean it's too early to get massively excited though, eh? There's 91 games planned for the PSVR and we're writing about all of them, but in the meantime, why don't we take a look at some of the most exciting games coming your way at launch?

Until Dawn: Rush of Blood

Until Dawn was one of the best horror games of 2015 and, while it's a light-gun shooter now and so will play totally differently.

Luckily it's not really the experience of playing the game that people loved. It was a horrifying tale about living with decisions with each choice making you have an impact on your game, even if you didn't realise it at the time.

This game centers on a dilapidated fairground ride and a bunch of bad folk trying to tear you a new one. Luckily, in addition to CHOICES™ you'll also have GUNS™. Pew pew.


Whether you prefer to call it Adrift or Adr1ft, this story of an astronaut waking up floating in space near a ruined space station is compelling stuff.

Story is largely delivered through the environment as you pick your way through the destroyed station, avoiding hazards such as "Oh crap i'm in space and the air isn't breathable out here" and my personal favourite "my space-house is literally broken so now i'm trapped out here, in space, where there is no oxygen".

It promises to be something special, and the team released 9 minutes of gameplay footage last year that you can take a look at.

No Man's Sky

A caveat for this one, No Man's Sky still isn't 100% confirmed for the PS:VR but all signs are pointing that way. If it doesn't end up being announced, give us a break, eh?

You don't need us to tell you to be keen for No Man's Sky. It's already the focus of many gamers as this ambitious title from Hello Games aims to deliver a completely explorable universe that's completely procedurally generated, from the planets themselves all the way down to the music.

The central theme to the game is exploration - you're free to come and go as you please from planet to planet. You can fight pirates in space, or try and be the first to discover some of the planets.

It's been a long time coming, but exploring this infinite universe with the sense of presence that VR offers is beyond exciting.

E.V.E Valkyrie

I've already described E.V.E Valkyrie as the best Star Wars game they never made.

A dogfighting game that feels immediately familiar, letting you quickly pull off corkscrews, the Kulbit and other aerial twists and spins without too much of a headache.

It's a masterpiece, really. Designed exclusively for VR there are many weapons systems that work solely by looking at the enemy, meaning you can concentrate on flying your tiny ship through the tightly designed maps.

Valkyrie is coming to every platform, but I think with the slightly arcadey feel and simple controls will really find its feet with the PS:VR and is sure to find its way into the library of every headset owner.

Ark: Survival Evolved

Sure, you can already play this one on your PC, your Xbox One and soon enough your PS4 too. Ark: Survival Evolved is one of the horde of multiplayer survival adventures that followed in the footsteps of DayZ, but this one is different.

It's got dinosaurs.

Aside from the beauty of seeing a T-rex up close or riding your own dino chum around in virtual reality, it's also one of the best examples of the (now oversaturated) genre. You can craft gear, build bases and tame dinosaurs, or attack other people and take their spoils.

Battlezone was doing VR before it was cool. Battlezone was doing virtual reality before VR existed.

The original BattleZone was a tank brawler that put you in charge of a super-weapon in VR. Rebellion are bringing the concept back to life for the PlayStation VR and actually putting the player in virtual reality rather than just the concept.

Tim Jones from Rebellion came to Pocket Gamer Connects back in January to talk about many of the design choices for Battlezone, including making the character feel incredibly powerful in their massive tank - but for me I just love the neon coloured tanks whizzing around the place.

Just look at that trailer above. Look at it!

Golem is a mix between Pacific Rim and Shadow of the Colossus only without Idris Elba screaming loudly about cancelling the apocalypse before stabbing a 70 foot-tall monster in the eye.

This one is intriguing: you'll be playing as a young girl with the ability to control a towering golem and explore places. The bond between the girl and the behemoth she can control should lead to an interesting dynamic and here's hoping there's some golem related violence too.

There's a mountain of PlayStation VR games coming our way, so feel free to leave the ones you're most excited for in the comments, won't you?
