First up, I had to Google what Gnarly meant, not sure if it really makes sense in the title but it sounds good. Anyway, if you hark back to publisher Perp Games PS VR2 showcase, you might remember there was a certain skate game shown at the end.
VR Skater as it’s called looked pretty damn good and looked like a great way to experience skateboarding without the risk of skint knees, broken limbs and sore balls when a trick goes horribly wrong.
You may have been wondering when VR Skater will be coming to PS VR2, well, I can tell you. It will be coming to PlayStation VR2 on June 21st. And we know this thanks to a YouTube short published recently by Perp Games.
If you are wondering what VR Skater is all about, here’s the official blurb.
VR Skater is designed from the ground up for VR to give you the most authentic, challenging, and immersive skating game ever. Picture the board under your feet, the rolling, clicking sound of rubber wheels against the tiled pavement before you pop that perfect ollie.
Feel like you are really skating, with the most innovative input mechanics allowing you the board control you’ve always dreamed of. Moving your hands in the same motions you would follow with your feet gives a perspective and level of control never before seen and the sense of fulfilment experienced upon perfectly executing even the most basic tricks is something that never leaves you!
To help you master the art of street skateboarding, you’ll will be guided through flip tricks, grab tricks, grinds, slides and manuals enabling you to conquer each of these skills to carve out skating lines and combos during game runs. All of which each helps you rack up those points for that all time high score run!
You will skate across 7 stunning urban environments as well as the Mega Ramp. Test your mettle by launching yourself across the chasm. A truly amazing experience in VR.
Enjoy XP, medals, trophies, leaderboards and the VR Skater shop, where you can exchange your hard earned XP and swap out your grip tape, trucks, wheels and of course, that all important board artwork!
VR Skater can be added to your wishlist right now on the PlayStation Store. You can also check it out on the Perp Games store which will be selling physical copies of the game. Perp hasn’t announced a release date yet for the physical copies though.
VR Skater for PS VR2 will be out on June 21s. If you want to be prepared for VR Skater on PS VR2, then take a look at this list of skateboarding lingo.
