During Bethesda’s E3 Showcase, the company announced a new standalone VR title: Wolfenstein: Cyberpilot, a game set to launch sometime in 2019. Having talked to a Bethesda spokesperson, we can now confirm the upcoming VR game is targeting PSVR and HTC Vive with a prospective 2019 launch.
Update (06/12/18): A previous version of this article featured a leaked German version of the PSVR trailer. Having spoken to Bethesda reps, we have confirmed that ‘Wolfenstein: Cyberpilot’ is indeed headed for Vive and PSVR.
The original article follows below:
Orignal article (06/11/18): Set in Paris in 1980, you join The Resistance and fight the occupying Nazis with their own machines. Playing as a hacker, you take control of the fire-breathing Pazerhund and unleash holy hellfire and upturn cars on top of Nazi super soldiers.
Here’s Bethesda’s description:
The Resistance has upped its tech game in the two decades since the events of Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus. Wolfenstein: Cyberpilot drops you into the role of a resistance hacker on a mission to tear apart the Nazi forces in Paris using their own machines. Take control of a fire-breathing Panzerhund and more as you fight Nazis in the City of Love in order to aid the French resistance. Wolfenstein: Cyberpilot will be available as a standalone VR game in 2019. Saddle up, Cyberpilot. You’re one of us now.
At the time of its announcement yesterday, it wasn’t clear which platforms the game would target (see update), but if the PlayStation trailer is any indication, we can at least expect PSVR support.
Specifics are still thin on the ground, so we’ll be updating this piece as well as reporting on all things VR to develop from this year’s E3.
