Sony and developer Rebellion have announced a partnership that will see Battlezone VR get a retail version alongside the PSVR on October 13th, 2016.

Usama Al-Qassab, Vice President of Marketing at SIEE had this to say on the partnership:

2016 is the year of VR, and we are committed to providing a full range of the best and most innovative experiences for PlayStation VR at launch. We have been working with a number of independent studios to bring their creative visions to life, and are delighted to be partnering with Rebellion to bring the classic Battlezone franchise to PlayStation VR.


Jason Kingsley OBE, Co-founder of Rebellion, also commented:

We are delighted Rebellion can work with PlayStation® to give Battlezone a boxed, retail release. We’re extremely proud of Battlezone; it’s a title that helps to show just how powerful and transformative an experience VR can be.

With help from our friends at PlayStation, Battlezone will have an even broader reach than we could have imagined. Right from the earliest days of Project Morpheus they’ve played a huge part in supporting independent VR games development and worked closely with our team to deliver the kind of complete VR gameplay experience players have been calling out for. We know you’ll love it if you play it – and now you’ve got no excuse not to!
