PlayStation VR launch games, Dragon Quest Builders, WWE 2K17, more added to PS Store

playstationVRIt’s a big week for Sony as the consolemaker is all set to launch the PlayStation VR headset this Thursday, October 13. Naturally, their splashy hardware launch will be joined by an equally impressive slate of new software including Batman: Arkham VR, DriveClub VR, Rez Infinite, and RIGS: Mechanized Combat League. All told, more than two dozen titles compatible with PlayStation VR will soon to be available to download from the PlayStation Store.

That includes Rise of the Tomb Raider: 20 Year Celebration, which made its PS4 debut this week after a year of Xbox One/PC exclusivity. In addition to including all the previously-released DLC to Lara Croft’s latest adventure, Crystal Dynamics added a special chapter that players will be able to explore using Sony’s virtual reality headset.

For those who plan to pass over PlayStation VR, there’s still plenty of big new releases on the PlayStation Store this week, and that includes Dragon Quest Builders (PS4), Square Enix’s Minecraft-like action RPG; WWE 2K17 (PS4, PS3), the latest wrestling sim from 2K Games; and Duke Nukem 3D: 20th Anniversary World Tour (PS4), a re-release of the famed first person shooter.

And speaking of re-releases, Konami will bring Hideo Kojima’s Ground Zeroes and The Phantom Pain together in a single package as Metal Gear Solid V: The Definitive Experience, and Rockstar will add Red Dead Revolver to the list of PS2-On-PS4 titles.

More information on all of these games (and a few other new releases) can be found after the break. And a full rundown of this week’s new add-ons and discounts is available at the PlayStation Blog.
