At its E3 event, Sony set a launch date and price for the PlayStation VR. The headset will debut on October 13 for $399, and will exclusively carry Batman Arkham VR, a new Batman story set in the Arkham universe.
From Bill Green, Principal Designer at Rocksteady Studios:
Now I know we said Batman: Arkham Knight was our last-ever Batman game, but the arrival of the PlayStation VR devkits changed that! The opportunity to create a completely new kind of Batman experience, to take the 'Be the Batman' experience to an even deeper level on this exciting new platform, was too good to resist.
One of the things that Arkham fans have been asking for is the opportunity to explore some of the most iconic locations in Batman's universe such as Wayne Manor and the Batcave. For the first time in a Rocksteady Arkham story, Batman: Arkham VR offers players the chance to do exactly that – to feel that unique sense of presence in these legendary locations through virtual reality. If you've ever wondered how it would feel to be Bruce Wayne surrounded by the finery of Wayne Manor, then descend into the Batcave to put on the iconic Batsuit, you'll know why we're so excited about putting the game in players' hands.
Batman Arkham VR will make its debut in the month of October, shortly after the launch of PlayStation VR. Along with Rocksteady's title, Sony showed off an exclusive first-person shooter called Farpoint, an "unnerving space adventure set on a hostile alien world:"
