Virtual reality has been getting bigger and bigger over the last few years, especially with the release of the Oculus Rift, Samsung Gear VR and Playstation VR. Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment are getting in on the action with a new Playstation game dubbed Batman: Arkham VR, and today we have the first trailer. The Batman game was first announced back in June, but today we have our first official look at this highly-anticipated VR experience.
Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and DC Entertainment teamed up with Rocksteady Studios, creators of the critically acclaimed Batman: Arkham trilogy, for Batman: Arkham VR. The game is based on DC's core Batman license and will be available exclusively for the PlayStation 4 computer entertainment system with PlayStation VR in October 2016. This game is the very first virtual reality experience that allows fans to Be the Batman like never before.
