PSVR celebrates second anniversary with sale on games and free Astro Bot demo

Now is a good time to add some quality games to your PSVR library and prepare for the launch of some new ones.


Sony's PlayStation VR has been delivering strong virtual adventures for almost two years now and the company is gearing up to celebrate the anniversary in a big way. The biggest new PSVR announcement was the reveal of Borderlands 2 VR, which launces December 14, 2018, but PSVR owners will be able to celebrate before that with a PlayStation VR sale and the free demo for Astro Bot Rescue Mission. Here are a few highlights from the PSN store:

  • Zone of the Enders: The 2nd Runner VR - $23.99
  • Firewall Zero Hour - $33.99
  • Superhot VR - $17.49
  • Job Simulator - $14.99
  • Bravo Team - $27.99
  • The Invisible Hours - $20.99
  • Star Trek: Bridge Crew - $23.99
  • Surgeon Simulator - $7.99

These things are only the beginning when it comes to PlayStation VR's second anniversary. Critically acclaimed Firewall Zero Hour is getting a new DLC pack featuring new items, skins, and weapons on October 16, 2018. Pre-orders for Disruptive Games' Megalith kick off November 13 alongside a free trial before the game launches January 8, 2018, thrusting players into the role of massive and powerful titans. Tetris Effect also falls into place November 9, 2018, and preorders are available now.

If you've not grabbed PSVR yet, the Creed: Rise to Glory and Superhot VR bundle is available in the US and Canada for $349.99 and $449 respectively. There's also the Astro Bot Rescue Mission and Moss bundle for $299.99 in the US and $379.99 in Canada, giving you two of the best platformers the platform has to offer.
