I am so impressed with this game. VR – Virtual Reality is something that I have loved since I initially tried it. But seeing yourself in the mirror as Batman, moving your hand which is actually Batman’s is one of the most thrilling things I have every experiences in my entire life.
Warner Bros. was lovely in letting me try out the Batman Arkham VR game at Fan Expo. I had 20 minutes to try out the demo. It is truly an experience that will leave you with goosebumps – feeling emotionally connected to what is happening around you.
It starts with you talking to Alfred. You are in front of a piano, trying to play it. The following location is being on a platform being descended into the Batcave. Although I knew in my right mind I was in Toronto at Fan Expo standing on solid ground I could not help but shake in fear as I descended to his lair. Seeing the bats surround me and the scenery is so immersive you can’t help but believe it is really happening.
It is in the cave that you put on the Batsuit. You also set up your weapons and scanner for the crime scenes you get to solve. Not to brag but I was better than I thought I would be. Though this could also be because it was demo mode.
I will say I was nervous yet excited of what it would be like to see the Joker in VR as the Batman. Did not see him in the demo, but curious of course.
Batman VR will be launching on October 11th 2016 for Playstation VR. My birthday is October 10th in case you were wondering 😉
