PSVR was one of the industry's biggest success stories in 2017. With over 2 million PlayStation VR headsets sold and a slew of excellent titles released over the past year, the platform is shaping up to be the essential accompaniment to the PlayStation 4 experience. 

And with 2018 on the horizon, things are only going to get better. Next year's software lineup already looks like it's going to really turn some heads and convince sceptics to book a ticket on the virtual reality train. These are the PSVR games you need to be looking out for over the next set of 365 days.

The Inpatient

Publisher: Sony Interactive Entertainment
Developer: Supermassive Games
Release Date: 23rd January

Sure, we probably should have been playing The Inpatient last month, but after its short and bittersweet delay, this Until Dawn prequel becomes one of our most anticipated for the month of January. Resident Evil VII: Biohazard is the only other horror title to really take advantage of PlayStation VR, so we can't wait to scare ourselves silly as we take a trip around this mental asylum.


Publisher: Polyarc
Developer: Polyarc
Release Date: February

We've got hands on features pouring out of our mousy ears for Moss, so it's easy to see why we're excited to play the final version. This cutesy action-platformer seems to be taking advantage of VR in a number of unique ways as it twists the perspective, and then tasks you to take control of your enemies with the DualShock 4 light bar. This experience looks to be full to the brim with charm, fun, and promise that we hope is realised in two months time.

Bravo Team

Publisher: Sony Interactive Entertainment
Developer: Supermassive Games
Release Date: 6th March

Playing co-op games with PSVR is a profound experience, because you feel a strange kind of attachment to your partner. Bravo Team aims to play on that, arming you with a PSVR Aim Controller and providing you with a variety of tactical combat scenarios to navigate with a friend.


Publisher: Highwire Games
Developer: Highwire Games
Release Date: 13th March

Not too much is really known about Golem, and yet it solidifies its place on this list thanks to its potential alone. You'll take control of giant stone creatures as you explore the world and do battle in huge sword fights, and with a team at Highwire Games comprised of former Bungie employees at the helm, you could say that this PSVR title is in safe and rocky hands.

Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown

Publisher: Bandai Namco
Developer: Project Aces
Release Date: 2018

Not fully playable with PlayStation VR, but boasting an additional campaign designed specifically for Sony’s headset, Bandai Namco’s melodramatic military franchise promises to be the perfect fit for virtual reality, with its high-stakes dogfights and over-the-top action. Do a barrel roll (without chundering)!

Blood & Truth

Publisher: Sony Interactive Entertainment
Developer: London Studio
Release Date: 2018

The London Heist was easily the best thing about launch title PlayStation VR Worlds, so we're incredibly excited to see it get a huge follow-up in the form of its very own game. This cockney-driven espionage looks to mix stealth, frantic gun battles, and a bucket full of attitude into a concoction that could be one of PSVR's greatest. It's Danny Dyer meets James Bond, and if that doesn't get you more excited than an EastEnders Christmas Special then we don't know what to tell you.


Publisher: Sony Interactive Entertainment
Developer: Media Molecule
Release Date: 2018

Dreams won’t support PlayStation VR at launch, but Media Molecule’s already pledged to support Sony’s virtual reality headset with a post-release update. And what could possibly be more exciting than putting the power of the peripheral in the hands of fans? Titles like Tilt Brush have already proven the potential of VR painting, but Dreams promises to elevate all of those possibilities to a new level.

Star Child

Publisher: Playful Corp
Developer: Playful Corp
Release Date: 2018

Star Child shakes things up a little on the VR front with a 2D perspective that tells the tale of Spectra, a traveller who becomes stranded on an alien planet. With teleportation abilities, it's your job to help her survive. It's nice to see virtual reality games begin to branch out from the first-person perspective, and with a beautiful art style to complement it, we're hoping that Star Child is one of 2018's best.

Sprint Vector

Publisher: Survios
Developer: Survios
Release Date: 2018

Speed is the name of the game in Sprint Vector, a VR title that will have you on your feet and using the PlayStation Move controllers in a running motion to generate movement. Racing other players looks like it'll be an intense and enjoyable experience, and with weapons and power-ups to pick up along the way, the competition only gets fiercer. If everything works out well, Sprint Vector is going to be one of those games you show to all of your friends and family.

The Persistence

Publisher: Firesprite
Developer: Firesprite
Release Date: 2018

A first-person rogue-lite set against a Dead Space-esque horror, The Persistence pegs you as the remaining crew members of a futuristic vessel gone awry. With each death a new cryogenically frozen survivor will be awakened, but have you got what it takes to survive?


Publisher: Ubisoft
Developer: SpectreVision
Release Date: 2018

When Frodo Baggins wants to make a PlayStation VR game, you give him all the money you have. Ubisoft answered that call, and while we're still not entirely sure what Transference actually is, we can glean a few things from pre-release material. The title looks to be tackling time travel, mental health, and the theory that what we're all experiencing isn't real. Sounds interesting, right?

Is there anything we missed? Let us know which PSVR games you're looking forward to in the comments below.
