Pistol Whip Fires Onto PlayStation VR


Cloudhead Games may have added a couple of extra days onto the original launch window but PlayStation VR owners can now relish in the visceral gameplay that is Pistol Whip. Check out VRFocus’ gameplay video at the bottom to see the title in action.

Pistol Whip

There are plenty of first-person shooters (FPS) and rhythm-action videogames out there for virtual reality (VR) headsets but Pistol Whip has carved a niche all of its own ever since its initial launch at the end of 2019 for PC VR headsets and Oculus Quest.

Offering a bold, colourful aesthetic which pulses and vibrates to the pounding soundtracks, all 15 ‘Scenes’ have made it through to PlayStation VR. Set on rails, you journey through each level shooting enemies in time with the music for maximum points, with an auto-aim set as default to enable that god-like, superhero feeling of being unstoppable.

Whilst shooting or gun butting nearby enemies, you’ll also need to watch out and dodge incoming bullets – which are relatively slow motion. If a scene is too easy or too hard then delve into the modifier section to alter the gameplay, adding a second gun (which reduces your score) or switch off the auto aim (which increases the multiplier).

Pistol Whip

VRFocus thoroughly enjoyed playing Pistol Whip, saying in its review: “Pistol Whip is huge amounts of fun even on the easiest difficulty setting, suitable for VR players no matter their skill level.”

Now that the PlayStation VR launch is complete Cloudhead Games’ next release will be the ‘Heartbreaker Trilogy’ update coming in August, adding 3 new abstract, colourful, and highly-musical scenes, 2 new modifiers and new customization options. That will be followed by the two-part ‘Action Pack 1 / The Concierge’ update in Q4 2020.

Pistol Whip is available now via the PlayStation Store for £23.99 GBP/$24.99 USD. For further updates on the latest content, keep reading VRFocus.
