Sony, MWM Immersive, and Tequila Works today announced that their upcoming VR adventure Groundhog Day: Like Father Like Son is set to launch next month, which includes support for Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, and PSVR.
The game is being billed as a VR narrative adventure which is set in the world of the 1990s classic film Groundhog Day (1993). The VR adventure is slated to launch globally on September 17th for $30.
In Groundhog Day: Like Father Like Son, players dip back into the world of Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania as the son of Phil Connors, the aptly named Phil Connors Junior. The game, which traps you in a time loop à la the original film, is said to include puzzles and much of the iconic (and now cartoonish) environments from the game’s namesake.
Groundhog Day: Like Father Like Son will be available for pre-order on PlayStation Store, Oculus Store, Viveport, and Steam starting tomorrow, August 20th. PlayStation Plus members will be able to pre-order the game at a discounted price of $27.
For a limited time, US and Canada-based pre-orders will also include a code to download a digital copy of Groundhog Day the film.
Groundhog Day VR will be available for demo at Gamescom this week. We have feet on the ground in Cologne, Germany, so strap in for the latest in AR/VR news to come from the world’s largest gaming event.
