Ever wanted to fight alongside Optimus Prime et al? Well now you have the chance, courtesy of Transformers Beyond Reality for PSVR2. Putting in a surprise appearance on the PS Store today, the arcade-inspired first-person shooter has been heavily upgraded for Sony’s cutting-edge tech, making the experience more immersive than ever before.
Of the upgrades, you can expect improved visual fidelity at a robust 70 frames-per-second, without any stutters or dips. The developer has also gone in and optimised many of the moments in the campaign, either increasing the interactivity or taking care to better frame the action for PSVR2’s wider field of view.
But perhaps most importantly of all, developer Meta4 Interaction has painstakingly incorporated haptic feedback and adaptive triggers. This, according to the team, actually improves gameplay: for example, in the original, the direction of incoming gunfire was indicated using red flashes on the screen – but now it’s using the headset’s built-in rumble to communicate potential danger.
The game’s out now on PS5, where it’ll set you back £19.99/$24.99. Will you be rolling out your PSVR2 headset to battle alongside the Autobots? Transform in the comments section below.
My first thought is to cringe and licenced-anything....but....that actually looks kinda good. This could be a surprise must-have I didn't know existed.
Of course, I'd have to pull myself away from NMS which is becoming increasingly difficult the deeper in I go!
A review I saw for this said it was kinda a generic shooter in a Transformers skin but I guess that doesn’t necessarily make it bad. Looks kinda nice.
I saw this before, was interested because transformers is great and I love, but I didn't want to get more PSVR games at that point as I had enough unplayed ones and knew it would be hard to go back once I got a PSVR2.
I'll definitely keep an eye on this and check out reviews. PSVR2 just keeps growing.
Probably going to wait for a sale on this one. I heard about it earlier this year but I’ve had my PSVR packed up for a couple years now and was hoping for a PSVR 2 upgrade. After checking out a review it said the story doesn’t last much more than an hour, though there is an arcade mode that seems like it might be an endless mode? In any case there’s just not enough content here to justify $24.99 for me especially when Walkabout Mini Golf is available for $34.99 with all its dlc for $34.99 and offers MUCH more replay value. Into the wish list this goes.
I'd have thought a VR Transformers game would have you be a Transformer...
70fps? That’s very strange. Not encouraging. Still, perhaps better than 60hz reprojected.
Soon it shall be mine. I used to love Transformers as a kid and they always have a special place in my heart.
@thefourfoldroot1 Yeah, that's a strange number I don't think I've ever seen a game use before. IDK how they ended up with that target, but, yeah, 70's better than 60 reprojected.
It is. Very strange. To the point I could almost believe it’s a typo.
I’ve noticed quite a few other announcements too. Apart from the stealth drop of organ quarter, there’s also budget cuts ultimate that’s been announced on the store! Looking forward to that. Plus Break Stuff VR, which not so much.
Great news, was going to buy for my PSVR. Now it's on PSVR 2 even better will purchase later:)
I just want a war for cybertron remaster
@thefourfoldroot1 The ps store vr page hurts my brain. So many "announced"games, no dates, even when it's the next day....yet games like the golf are still missing. I try to keep up but it's not easy with that site!
I saw PSVR2 Without Parole mentioned it on their latest Youtube video. Apparently the resolution hasn't really been increased, and there is no auto-fire, so pressing the adaptive triggers a thousand times becomes exhausting.
Not played the the original or the update myself, so just going off of what he said.
@thefourfoldroot1 I'm pretty sure it's a typo. Afaik, PSVR2 only supports native 90 and 120 fps, or 60 with reprojection to 120.
Technically, you could run a game at 70 fps, but then you'd need to fit it inside either a 60 or 90 Hz container. In the first case, it would just mean that the framerate would be capped to 60 fps reprojected. In the latter case, frame pacing would be all over the place, making it look actually worse than capped 60.
I was excited about this game. Till I saw a video and it looks like a hollow rail shooter with Transformers skins. Looks boring TBH.
@thefourfoldroot1 pretty sure that is a typo and it's supposed to read 90fps as PSVR2 does not support 70fps.
I don't have a VR so I'll wait for that other new transformers game coming out called TF reactivate
@Dusk_Actual I'd love to see a War on Cybertron remake. They released Fall of Cybertron on PS4 digitally, but then it was removed later due to expired licensing rights.
@LightningLeader Same plan here, hopefully we won't be waiting much longer for a release date trailer.
