PlayStation VR owners are getting the best present this Christmas. RollerCoaster Legends, the first full VR purpose-built rollercoaster experience for PSVR will be released on December 21st. It will be available on PSVR, Steam, Oculus Store, and Viveport. It will be priced at 4.99 (USD/EUR).
RollerCoaster legends transports you into the world of Greek mythology, including the Minotaur, Kronos, and Hades. Players will speed through various mythical scenes and encounter enchanting characters, all while riding a fast-paced rollercoaster with daring drops and turns. The experience is fairly lengthy, lasting 8 minutes in total but is outstandingly engaging at every second.
The official trailer has been released showing the expansive scenery and some of the interesting characters. You can watch it here.
Irish based studio, WarDucks, have previously released 3 top selling virtual reality titles. Their most recent release Sneaky Bears is a fun, humorous, shoot ‘em up game where you take on an evil teddy bear called Frank. They also had a number 2 best-selling coaster on Samsung Gear VR called Sneaky Bears RollerCoaster.
WarDucks CEO, Nikki Lannen, says, “We love rollercoasters here at WarDucks but felt what is out there is lacking in certain ways. Many of the rollercoasters available are not focused on your virtual environment and are simply a replica of what is available in real life. We feel as though we have built something which gives the thrill of a rollercoaster but also provides an engaging interesting experience at the same time.”
RollerCoaster Legends will be available just in time to show all your relatives what VR is all about during the holiday season. Pick up this title on PSVR, Oculus Rift or HTC Vive on Thursday, December 21st for 4.99 or add to your Steam wish list now.
