E3 2017: VR Game 'Star Child' Receives Trailer

Dedicating a large portion of its E3 showcase to virtual reality, six new games were unveiled across a range of genres.

Sony Interactive Entertainment and Supermassive Games have announced Bravo Team, a brand new first person shooter that is exclusive for the Playstation VR at the Sony E3 presentation. Skyrim is also going virtual and it will be released a few weeks after Fallout 4 VR hits the HTC Vive.

And there was more footage of God of War - a highly anticipated action game, first teased at Sony's E3 event in 2016. When Sony initially filed the trademark earlier today, we speculated that a return to SOCOM U.S. Navy Seals may be on the cards, but it turns out that Bravo Team is a standalone PlayStation VR experience.

Decisive victor of dozens of VR Game of the Year awards, Superhot VR is a title reimagined and redesigned from the ground up for VR and hand tracking controllers. Games such as The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR could attract die-hard fans to virtual reality, but it's worth paying attention to the lesser-known titles, as well.

Bethesda's website lists Skyrim VR pre-orders though none of the links are live yet.

This latest VR title allows single and 2 player co-op and places the focus on teamwork and the use of verbal communication to help avoid enemy detection.

VR players will get the full game, including all of its expansion packs.

Skyrim VR reimagines the complete epic fantasy masterpiece with an unparalleled sense of scale, depth, and immersion. This is a military FPS, although unlike existing rivals like Vive title Onward, Supermassive's game will be character and plot driven.

The announcement doesn't mention support for mods. Who says there's no new ideas in gaming?
