SUPERHOT VR has been available to PC owners for a while now, playable on both HTC Vive and Oculus Rift. The independent first-person shooter video game developed by the Superhot team will be making its appearance real soon.
The Unbelievable Superhot is coming to PS VR this summer
Sony announced a few titles hitting PlayStation 4 in the near future, with SUPERHOT VR making an appearance. The title has been confirmed for PlayStation VR and will be expected this summer.
Just last year, Superhot VR came out on PC, Mac, Linux before ported to Oculus Rift which became an incredible VR experience. It consoles fans with a fancy new game mechanic and with a couple of twists: the player stays in one place while the enemies advance. For these reasons, Ocular Rift is rated as 9.1 out of 10 by many medias. At last Sony gets the chance to bring the PS VR, when Rift exclusivity window Superhot’s developers agreed to have ended.
The non-VR superhot gives a unique game element: the world around you moves only when you do until then time is frozen. Meanwhile, the VR version of Ocular Rift is a fun title where the player stays in one place while the enemies advance. Here your physical body is replaced as the primary input control. Even a single delicate movement would send a dozen of bullets coursing through the air toward you at frightening speeds. The only way to overcome your enemies is to slow down and planning your route of attack by carrying smooth and flawless movements.
It’s certainly an unabashedly unique and heart-pumping game currently out for VR headsets. Despite the two hours of gameplay, it’s one of those games you’ll pick up again and again. It’s cool when you grab a pistol out of a bad guy’s hand, shattering another guy with a punch and shooting down a row of the offending crystalline red guys from across the room.
Here’s the overview of the Superhot VR:
SUPERHOT VR is described by the dev team, SUPERHOT Team, as “The definitive VR FPS in which time moves only when you move. No regenerating health bars. No conveniently placed ammo drops. It’s just you, outnumbered and outgunned, grabbing the weapons of fallen enemies to shoot, slice, and maneuver through a hurricane of slow-motion bullets.”
- BODIES ARE DISPOSABLE

The latest VR version of Superhot now comes with the massive Superhot Forever update, bringing 20 plus hours of nerve wrenching challenges, achievements, and endless areas are guaranteed to ferociously break you and transform you into an exclusive version of yourself.

After Experiencing the Ocular Rift version, Ben Lang Executive Editor of Road to VR exact words:
Every movement matters. Every pull of the trigger counts. My body is anchored in the virtual world because I have to dodge punches, knives, and bullets—it’s interacting with me in a significant way. Enemies aim well, and you have to dodge better to stay alive. Like Neo stopping the bullets for the first time at the end of The Matrix, I wanted to be able to hold up my hand and say “No,” to what I knew in an instant was the end of the game that had come a bit too soon. But, despite my training, I was not The One.
SUPERHOT had heaps of critical acclaim at launch, and its VR version received equal praise. We can only assume the PlayStation VR version will be equally beloved.
