Farpoint

Farpoint, the E3 2016-announced PlayStation VR first-person shooter from Sony Interactive Entertainment and Impulse Gear, will launch in North America and Europe on May 16, Sony announced.

The game will launch alongside the PlayStation VR Aim Controller.

Here’s an overview of the game, via PlayStation UK:

Set off on a perilous journey into a hostile alien environment in Farpoint, exclusive to PlayStation VR.

Having found yourself stranded on an uncharted extra-terrestrial world with only standard issue equipment to keep you alive, you’ll need to set off in search of a crashed space station – The Pilgrim ­– and its survivors to find a way back home.

Master an arsenal of primary and secondary weapons as you freely explore your surroundings, uncovering secrets of the strange Anomaly which marooned you.

Farpoint is built from the ground-up for PlayStation VR and using the PlayStation VR Aim you’ll be able to directly interact with the digital world.
