Supermassive Games’ planned VR ghost train The Dark Pictures: Switchback VR will no longer meet its originally stated February 22 release date — the spooky-ooky title will now scare its way onto the PSVR2 platform on March 16.
“It has always been our goal to release during the launch window of the new PlayStation VR2 headset, but it is also hugely important to us that you, the players, receive the most polished, terrifying experience possible when you strap in for your first ride in The Dark Pictures: Switchback VR,”
writes Supermassive Games in a press release.
“With this in mind, we have made the tough choice to reschedule the launch until March 16, 2023.”
Switchback VR, described as Supermassive’s “most ambitious virtual reality project to date,” will immerse players in an immersive, atmospheric, and terrifying 3D world as they ride a literal rollercoaster through five distinct regions inspired by the stories of the studio’s horror anthology series, The Dark Pictures. So get ready to meet the ghouls, witches, and demons in Man of Medan, Little Hope, House of Ashes, and the newest addition, The Devil in Me.
On March 16, The Dark Pictures: Switchback VR will be released. The PSVR2 gear will be available worldwide on February 22 for the princely sum of $550 USD. Who says you can’t place a monetary value on terror?
