Batman: Arkham VR
Let's be honest, who has never wanted to be Batman? To step into the suit, and do battle with the villains that plague Gotham City, or to have access to all of the awesome gadgets that he has at his disposal. Well, Rocksteady has brought you exactly that experience. This game makes becoming the Batman more possible than ever, and they've gone out of their way to bring an excellently immersive experience.
You'll be able to explore Wayne Manor, and the Batcave, amongst other iconic locations inside the city. This isn't just any Arkham game though. Instead you'll be solving an intense murder mystery that plays back to the classic Batman comics, with a twist of darkness that the Arkham games have given us now for years.
How we Soar
It's time to take to the skies, and explore a new world. In How we Soar, you'll play as a gigantic Phoenix that swoops and glides through the air. By controlling the Phoenix via your Dualshock 4 controller, you'll have the ability to bring a world back to life. Each level that you encounter will start by appearing shredded, and as you get closer to it, the world will unfurl and paint itself in vibrant colors.
The landscapes that you are exploring are all crafted in excruciating detail in a unique papercraft artstyle that will take your breath away.

When things get tough, the tough keep moving. After you crash land on an alien planet, things start to go bad. Very, very bad. You'll have to fight to survive against hostile alien life, and keep moving to find the secrets that are hidden on the planet. As if things weren't bad enough, your team has also been attacked and you'll need to find them before the worst can happen.
Farpoint uses the PS VR Aim controller, which gives you an unprecedented amount of control over your gameplay.
