On February 22nd, PlayStation VR2 users can experience the enhanced version of Pistol Whip, an intense physical action rhythm game. With internal upgrades such as SSD optimization, which reduces load times and scene transitions, and haptic feedback, this Day one title will redefine the physical gaming experience.
The reimagined PlayStation VR2 Sense Controllers are equipped with finger touch detection and a six-axis motion sensing system, creating a more realistic firing experience. Players will feel unique reload SFX for different weapons and changing resistance, including a haptic for dry fire. Additionally, three kinds of melee SFX provide varying sensations when Pistol Whipping different enemies.
Lead haptics engineer for PS VR2, Mike L., explains that when implementing the adaptive triggers, they found a number of ways to provide controller feedback. He states, “Now players will feel an increasing resistance as they pull the trigger, flattening out shortly before drawing it far enough that the weapon fires, at which point resistance drops to zero.”
The PS VR2 headset’s native vibrations work in conjunction with controller feedback and 3D audio, which respond to in-game impact or near misses. By dynamically adjusting sound positioning, players will hear and feel bullets whizz by their heads.
With a roadmap that suggests plenty of new Pistol Whip content coming this year, lucky PlayStation VR2 users can download this shiny new edition right away; just in time to practice for the upcoming releases. Enjoy a unique and immersive gaming experience with the enhanced version of Pistol Whip, now available on PlayStation VR2.
