Sony Farpoint VR Game with VR Aim Controller
Sony’s new Farpoint game transports you to a different planet where you’re fighting for your life against hordes of alien creatures, which is frankly unnerving when you’re experiencing it in VR. Your mission is to pick up scientists studying an anomaly with the potential of limitless power near Jupiter, a rupture from the anomaly transports the player and scientists to an unknown alien world. Separated from your colleagues, you must use holographic logs scattered throughout the landscape to reunite with the scientists and escape the planet. You can play in solo or co-op mode.
And Sony brings this first-person shooter experience to a whole new level with the PlayStation VR Aim controller, which has the feel and precision of a real blaster. So wherever you point you see it tracking onscreen, ensuring you always feel like you're really in the action. The bundle of the game and controller is $79 on Playstation.com
