Farpoint, for those who might know much about the game, is a virtual reality space adventure set on another planet. The full overview of the game states: “Farpoint is an unnerving VR space adventure set on a hostile alien planet. On a mission to pick up scientists studying an anomaly near Jupiter, a rupture from the anomaly transports the player and scientists to an unknown alien world.” Farpoint is one of the more notable titles that has been announced for PlayStation VR so far, and it will be interesting to see if the space adventure in virtual reality will suck some new gamers into the VR experience.

Alongside Farpoint, there is a new PlayStation VR Aim Controller that will be released on May 16th. This controller is designed to allow players to place the PlayStation Move controllers in a gun-like grip. This Aim Controller was expressly made for first-person shooters in VR, giving players a much easier play experience.
