VR Skater will grind PSVR2 from 21st June, 2023. The skateboarding simulation – which sees you execute tricks by manipulating your virtual board using your hands – promises the “most authentic, challenging, and immersive skating game ever”. You can check out a new trailer embedded above, which demonstrates how the gameplay works.
The developer, Deficit Games, is using the haptic feedback found in the PSVR2 Sense Controllers to replicate the feel of rails and the tension of the triggers to replicate the trucks of a real skateboard. Conceptually this does seem odd, because obviously you perform most skateboard tricks using your feet, but the gameplay looks undoubtedly entertaining in the trailer – we can’t wait to try it out!
