CAN YOU PLAY FARPOINT WITHOUT PLAYSTATION VR?
Farpoint, the PlayStation 4 exclusive game from Impulse Gear, is out this week but can it be played on Sony’s console with the PlayStation VR headset?
Unfortunately, unlike Resident Evil 7, the game can only be played in virtual reality using the PlayStation VR headset. Using the new Aim Controller, you embark on a journey to a far away planet, exploring the world killing aliens in an attempt to find a way home. The game is a PlayStation VR exclusive and is being marketed as the flagship AAA first-person shooter for Sony’s virtual reality device.
Although Farpoint is a first-person shooter that could, in theory, work without VR in some form, it is very unlikely that we’ll ever see that due to so many of the game’s mechanics being designed solely to work with PlayStation VR. The field of vision, the movement, the graphics, and the story are all developed with virtual reality in mind and would have to change significantly.
