After launching on PC VR & Oculus mobile VR headsets last year, Catan VR is finally making its way to PSVR.

The VR version of the 1995 classic board game Settlers of Catan first launched on the Oculus Store for Gear VR and Rift in March 2018, with Oculus Go support arriving shortly afterwards when the mobile headset launched back in May 2018. A version for Vive, Rift, and Windows VR came via Steam a few months later.

Starting June 25th, PSVR users will get a chance to jump in too, playing the game in an immersive online environment. Thankfully the game promises crossplay with “all major VR platforms.”

Described as “true to the classic but optimized for virtual reality,” Catan VR was developed by VR studio Experiment 7 in partnership with Klaus Teuber and his sons Guido and Benjamin, along with the Catan and Asmodee Digital teams. The board game takes place in a virtual room with views of the island of Catan itself through the windows.

“The absolute best part about Catan on PS VR is the sense of social presence you get when you jump into a game with friends or online opponents,” says Experiment 7 founder Geoffrey Zatkin.
Catan VR has a broad vocabulary of game experiences and the excitement of a great roll, the frustration of getting robbed, or the satisfaction of landing a big trade is really evident in the myriad micro-movements that you see other players exhibiting throughout the game.”

Catan VR offers both online multiplayer games as well as solo AI-based matches. According to a PS blog post, Experiment 7 worked directly with Klaus Teuber and his team to develop AI players that both “provide challenging tactical opponents at every difficulty level, but also express the canonical personalities that have made other versions of Catan so compelling.”

There’s no pricing info available just yet, although the game currently sells for $15 on Steam and the Oculus Store for Rift, and $10 on Gear VR/Oculus Go, so we expect pricing to hover somewhere around those two points.
